Shortly after Joe Biden was selected as the President-Elect, San Antonio Spurs star LaMarcus Aldridge took to Twitter to share a brief thought.
The United States is officially entering a new era as former Vice President Joe Biden was announced the winner of the 2020 Presidential election on Saturday afternoon. The news has drawn reactions from the entire world on social media, including San Antonio Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge.
There’s no doubt that a majority of the NBA had a horse in this race, as the Donald Trump administration hasn’t exactly been a good friend to the league and its players. LeBron James, unsurprisingly, took to Twitter to celebrate the news of Trump’s defeat with a cigar-smoking gif of himself and a dunk on the President.

Echoing the sentiment of several other players on Twitter, LaMarcus Aldridge had four simple words after the four-day election finally came to an end.
Tweeting the words “Breath of fresh air” with an image of Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, Aldridge’s words say a lot. No matter where you fall on the political landscape, it’s clear tensions have been high throughout 2020 and beyond.
LaMarcus is one of the least-active social media users on the Spurs, but his message shows hope and relief that many feel across the nation. In the past, Aldridge has retweeted a message from DeMar DeRozan over the summer about life being bigger than basketball shortly after the Milwaukee Bucks refused to take the court.
While not nearly as outspoken as guys like Gregg Popovich or DeMar, it’s clear that Aldridge is happy with the election results.
