Former All-Star Guard Brandon Roy Entertains Comeback Possibility - Feb 28, 2012

Brandon Roy
Former Rookie of the Year and 3-time All-Star guard Brandon Roy, who recently retired from basketball due to a serious knee condition, has been entertaining the possibility of a comeback, telling Eurobasket, 'It's hard being away from the game. Don't be surprised if you see Brandon Roy make his way back to the court.'

The five-year veteran, who was selected sixth in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, retired on December 10, 2011, after suffering from ongoing trouble with his knees.

Lately, Roy has been working out in his hometown gym, preparing for a life changing possibility. 'It burns being away from the game and watching the entire season from the outside,' a frustrated Roy said as he followed the shortened 2011-12 NBA season from his living room couch.

According to sources close to the player, regardless of his knee problems, Roy's decision to retire wasn't all health related. 'There's something to it, but it's not the right time for me to get into it right now,' Roy said. 'I've been doing some treatment and I'm trying to leave the window open to returning to basketball.'

When met with skepticism regarding his comeback, Roy explained, 'It's the truth. It's really hard being so far away from the game. I spend time watching Jamal (Crawford) and following all of his games; Will (Conroy) and Tre (Simmons) are both doing their thing, so it's driving me to wanna come back out there. If the treatment I've been looking into can work, I believe there's a good chance you will see Brandon Roy back hoopin'.'

Earlier this week, while the NBA's main event took place in Orlando, Roy, Will Conroy and Washington Huskies youngster Tony Wroten watched the All-Star game at the Blazers' guard Jamal Crawford's residence. Roy described his feelings. 'We were just relaxing and watching the game but all I could think about was all of the fun stuff behind the scenes. The guys brought back a lot of memories when they asked me what the feel was like and whether guys get along. I told them the players get along great because it's all really about having fun and amusing the fans.'

As a spectator, Roy observed that 'The players did whatever they could to make sure their fans get the best product, if it being Kobe and Lebron going at it late in the game or Kevin Durant's competitiveness. It's really hard doing it for 48-minutes, but I think in the fourth quarter, they definitely got the job done.'

Last year, while playing his fifth and final season for the Blazers, Roy played in 53 games, averaging 11.9ppg, 2.5rpg and 2.8apg.


  




Kevin Love
James, Cavs snap 3-game skid with 116-112 win over Raptors - 10 hours ago

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost J.R. Smith to a left knee injury early in the game, though LeBron James wouldn't allow his team to let up on the Toronto Raptors one bit. James scored a season-high 34 points as the Cavaliers broke a three-game losing streak with a 116-112 victory on Monday night. It was their third straight victory this season over the Raptors, the team they beat on their way to the championship in last year's Eastern Conference finals. "Next man up," he said. "It's always be...   [read more]

Thompson scores 60 as Warriors beat Pacers 142-106 - 10 hours ago

Klay Thompson (6'7''-G-90, college: Washington St.) had 60 points, an NBA season high and the most by a Golden State player in more than 42 years, as the Warriors whipped the Indiana Pacers 142-106 on Monday night. Thompson scored 40 by halftime in just 18-plus minutes. He had a career-best 60 points through three quarters and called it a night, sitting down with 1:22 left in the period as fans jumped to their feet for an extended ovation. Thompson joined Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain,...   [read more]

Westbrook's triple-double leads Thunder past Hawks, 102-99 - 10 hours ago

At first, Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) couldn't get the shots to fall. No problem. He crashed the boards and kept looking for his teammates. Then, he found his shooting touch. The result: another triple-double for the Oklahoma City star. Westbrook scored 32 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 12 assists, extending his streak of triple-doubles to six games as the Thunder held off the Atlanta Hawks 102-99 on Monday night. It is the NBA's longest such run since Micha...   [read more]
