Brandon Roy Says His Career is at a ‘Crossroad’

by February 04, 2013

Brandon Roy’s knee has slowed his attempt at a comeback this season, and while it’s clear the T-Wolves guard is attempting to remain positive, he seems have come to the realization that he’ll be back on an NBA court this year—or never again. Via CSNNW: “For a brief moment, former Portland Trail Blazers star Brandon Roy nearly called it a career after suffering yet another setback in his rehabilitation from knee surgery last Saturday in an individual workout. The plan for the Minnesota Timberwolves guard was to make his return to action Feb. 1 against the Los Angles Lakers at Target Center, after having two successful workout days. After that, he would join the team for practices leading up to the game. Friday’s session went as planned. Saturday’s didn’t. While performing a move in the first 20 minutes of the workout, he felt something in his right knee that he has felt far too often. He tweaked it, eliminating any possibility of him returning to action before the All-Star break. ‘As soon as it happened, in my head, I said ‘I quit. I just quit,’ an emotional Roy told ‘That was my first thought, that I couldn’t do this anymore. I’m at a crossroad in my career.’ He’s certain that if he can’t get right this season, it will be the end of his career. And he’s fine with that. I look at it like this has got to be the last season,’ he said. ‘I don’t have any regrets because I know I tried to give it another season. So me saying this has to be the last season, it’s not as difficult as it was last year. I tried. I gave it that last effort and it’s time to move on. I’m at that range to whereI’m at peace with things.'”
