LaMarcus Aldridge and the Spurs are breaking up. 

Now, is it time to get the band back together?

Point Guard Damian Lillard says he believes he and Aldridge could have won a championship together. 

He also said he'd want to reunite with LA. 

Aldridge, a seven-time All-Star, played his first 9 seasons with the Trail Blazers.

Well, Trail Blazers big man Jusuf Nurkic, who is recovering from a wrist injury, seems receptive to the idea. At least, passively.

Now 35, LA is in the final year of his contract, which is worth $24 million this season.

The only way he could make his way back to Portland is through the buyout market. A trade, at this point, is far too steep of an asking price.

Can you imagine this lineup? Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Derrick Jones, Jr., LaMarcus Aldridge & Jusuf Nurkic?

Dare to dream.

But, it doesn't seem too far-fetched.
