  • LaMarcus Aldridge will star with other Spurs in a new set of H-E-B commercials.

There are plenty of questions surrounding LaMarcus Aldridge’s upcoming debut with the Spurs.

How will he mesh with the offense? Will he be a defensive liability? Will he shoot the 3 more often than he did in Portland?

But the most important query of all, the one that burned in the hearts and minds of all San Antonians from the moment Aldridge signed with the silver and black, was finally answered today:

LaMarcus Aldridge will be in the next round of Spurs H-E-B commercials. Praise Spurs Jesus.

Here’s part of the official release from H-E-B:

LaMarcus will join the line‑up alongside teammates Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. The commercials may also include other surprise appearances by other players this year.

"Like his teammates, LaMarcus brings a unique flavor and community commitment to San Antonio and we are excited to introduce him to Spurs fans through our commercials," said Cory Basso, H‑E‑B Group Vice President of Marketing and Advertising. "For the past 10 years H‑E‑B customers have enjoyed connecting with the Spurs through their passion for H‑E‑B products. Customers and fans alike look forward to our commercials every year to open the basketball season."

No word on what products Aldridge will schill for. Maybe medium salsa because of his deadly medium-range jump shot? Or power greens salad mix because he’s a power forward?

Whatever it is, we’re excited. Here are some of the best commercials to tide you over until Aldridge’s debut:
