While seven NBA teams took turns offering LaMarcus Aldridge their best recruiting pitch, the Trail Blazers‘ other All-Star made one of his own.

Point guard Damian Lillard sent out a message on Twitter Wednesday afternoon saying he’d “love” to continue “playing alongside” the player he’s starred with the last three seasons.

Lillard and Aldridge have been teammates since the Blazers selected Lillard with the No. 6 pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, and they have developed into one of the NBA’s best duos.

During the three-year partnership, Aldridge has been an All-Star three times and Lillard has been named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year, in addition to two All-Star berths.

Aldridge, who is an unrestricted free agent, is in the midst of a whirlwind free agent recruiting saga that reportedly features recruiting meetings with the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks.
