Jordan Brand has a court general in Chris Paul, explosiveness in Blake Griffin, unstoppable scoring in Carmelo Anthony and the future in Jabari Parker. Now, the brand has fundamentals on the block after signing Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge to an endorsement deal earlier this week.

Tonight, Aldridge made his Jordan Brand debut, breaking out the 'Bred' Air Jordan 11 against the Denver Nuggets in preseason action. Official Team Jordan members usually lead modern performance, so it's possible Aldridge is just making an initial splash in a classic.

A few shots of Aldridge in 'Breds' below:
