Brandon Roy Says His ‘Basketball Days are Done’

Brandon Roy’s star-crossed NBA career is probably over. Roy admits that after he was released by the Minnesota Timberwolves, this is likely it for him. Per CSNNW: “Brandon Roy indicated Sunday at a University of Washington alumni game in Seattle that his NBA career is officially over. ‘My basketball days are done, that’s no secret,’ Roy said. Roy said that he will decide his next move this fall. […] Roy returned to basketball after one season off, signing a two-year, $10.4 million contract. He was once against sidelined after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery this past November, expecting to miss only one month of action. Complications kept him off the court for the remainder of the season. Roy averaged 5.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds for the Timberwolves in his five appearances and holds career averages of 18.8 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.”

    Even though he only played a short amount of time, I still consider him one of my all time favorites.

    Always pulled for this guy. Maybe he can become a shooting coach somewhere. Some teams could use those services.

  • Roy Blumenfeld

    He had so much talent and he the drive needed to be a superstar. This blows.

    I’d imagine if most consider Grant Hill or Vince Carter “borderline” HOFers, then Roy is definitely on the outside, but I think he coulda done it. Sad times.

    Sad to see him go. I was always a big fan of his game. But I’m glad to see that he’s finally come to terms with his situation and is ready to move on instead of fooling himself into believing that his body can handle the abuse of the NBA season.

    Roy has a great basketball mind. His game was more about out-thinking opponents rather than jumping over them, so I’m sure he can become a good coach down the road.

    He should be involved in the L still. Could be a great scout or assistant coach.

    His numbers in his final campaign are modest, by some standards.
    But to put up those numbers on no knees is remarkable.
    In my opinion.

    Damn, such a talented player. Hope to see him stick in the NBA in some capacity.

    Pau Gasol is doing a stem cell treatment for his tendinosis.

    >”After talking to several specialists, I’m going to proceed to regenerate both of my patellar tendons”
    >”It’s more than tendinitis, it’s tendinosis,” Gasol said. “There’s a degeneration of the tissue. So I’ll have to do something to regenerate the tissue so I don’t have to play with this pain.”.


    That’s tendons, but hopefully, cartilage restoration will come soon.
