LaMarcus Aldridge has picked the Brooklyn Nets over the Miami Heat in order to have a better shot at the 2021 NBA championship.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Aldridge chose to sign with the Nets, because he believes they have a better chance to win the title than the Heat.

“I asked Aldridge associate what changed his mind from original expectation that he would sign with Heat, which was expected by the Heat.

He said was convinced to join Brooklyn because they are in good position to compete for a championship. Heat recent losing streak didn’t help,” Jackson tweeted.

Aldridge is expected to join Brooklyn in the coming hours and help transform the Nets into the No.1 favorite for the championship.
