Brandon Roy’s story is a sad one. Once one of the top shooting guards in the league, Roy has been injury-prone once again this season in his attempt at a comeback. He has only appeared in 5 games so far this season, although he hopes to be back with the Timberwolves sooner rather than later.
His first retirement was due to his knee issues, which have been very serious. Many have speculated this season that he will retire again due to his injury woes, but according to him, that isn’t the case. Via the Star Tribune:
The former NBA Rookie of the Year and All-Star decided to revive his career in Minnesota this season. Roy said the latest knee trouble didn’t prompt him to consider retirement, like he did a year ago when he was with Portland.
“I never thought about walking away. It was just, for me, do I want to go through another procedure? Or do I want to play through it?” Roy said Thursday.
This is nice to hear from a guy who really deserves some good fortune with his career. Hopefully he can figure it all out and get back on the court, as the Timberwolves could certainly use some help at shooting guard.
He probably won’t ever be the player he once was for the Trailblazers, but he can still be an important piece for a good team.
