Roy Wants Starting Spot Back Next Season

by April 30, 2011

Brandon Roy told The Oregonian that he intents to start next season. Considering what he did to the Mavs in Game 4, we’re not counting him out yet: “Brandon Roy says he intends to work this summer to come back as a starter for the Trail Blazers next season. ‘I’m going to want to push to be a starter and help this team win. The goal doesn’t change,” Roy said Friday as the Blazers left for the offseason. ‘I think I definitely want to help this team get in position to win and get out of the first round.’ Roy admitted that he thought his season, and possibly his career, might be over while he sat out more than two months treating his chronically ailing knees.”
