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.

Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins banks in long three-pointer to beat OKC at buzzer - 21 hours ago
Andrew Wiggins (6'8''-G-95, college: Kansas) did not call glass. After the game was over, surrounded by reporters, taking all sorts of abuse from his teammates, Wiggins admitted that much. 'No,' Wiggins said, smiling. 'I did not.' A few lockers down, Karl-Anthony Towns (7'0''-F/C-95, college: Kentucky) laughed. 'He called 'game,' ' Towns said. It counted. Wiggins' final shot, a straightaway 30-foot dagger as time expired at Chesapeake Energy Arena, went off the glass and in, giving the Ti...   [read more]

Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky) scored 27 points, DeMarcus Cousins (6'11''-C/F-90, college: Kentucky) had 20 and the New Orleans Pelicans withstood a furious rally to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 119-112 on Sunday night for their first victory of the season. The Pelicans led by 22 points in the second quarter and were still up by double figures heading into the final period, but the Lakers made a charge despite a poor shooting night from rookie Lonzo Ball (6'6''-G-97, colleg...   [read more]

The Rockets land Briante Weber - 16 hours ago
