From ESPN’s Michael C. Wright:
“It was me kind of being blunt about it, and being kind of forward,” Aldridge recently told ESPN during training camp.
“He was open to it. I kind of just spilled my heart about how I felt about how things were, and how things had been going.” […]
Popovich admitted his power forward’s frustrations were “all legitimate,” and the hope is the opened lines of communication will help light the path to another title run. […]
“We have got to help him a little bit more so that he is comfortable in his own space offensively, and I haven’t done a very good job of that,” Popovich said.
