SEATTLE - Brandon Roy's basketball career came full circle on Sunday. After the University of Washington's Alumni Game, where he returned to the court where he first reached national prominence, Roy told reporters he's almost certainly played his last game in the NBA.

"I haven't come out and said it publicly, but for me mentally, I've just started to settle into living a normal life," he said. "I haven't officially announced anything, but right now I haven't thought about playing in the NBA."

feel so bad for the kid :(  Would have loved for him to have been a Laker if not for those injuries.  Used to imagine the damage him and Kobe could do to another team.


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

I'll always remember him being one of the game's most consistently clutch players. This guy provided so many awesome & exciting moments at the end of close games. It was a delight to see.

Sad to see him go.. again.
 

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

Second best shooting guard in the span after Kobe.

Amazing thing is both him and Eric Gordon looked to have that kind of potential, but injuries took them out of it. 

Wade seems to be the only guy that lasted, but even he is breaking down at 31 and if LeBron wasn't there the past 3 seasons who knows what would have happened to him by now.

Dammit, I hate to see players like these end up with injuries. So much potential. If only he didn't have problems with his knees.

Roy was on of my favorite players back in his hay day, was real fun to watch. A sg that could dominate the ball, but still very efficient with it. Always shot like 45+percent from the field. Had a pretty solid number of assit to turnover ratio too if I remember correctly. Sucks his game had to end because of his knee.


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Such a shame, dude was the third best SG when healthy behind Kobe and D-Wade back in Portland.
