Brandon Roy?!?!?!


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 CSNNW.com. “That was my first thought, that I couldn't do this anymore. CSNNW.com

“I just took a deep breath and told myself that I've been through this stuff before,” Roy said in a disappointed tone. CSNNW.com

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 where I'm at peace with things.” CSNNW.com

“I'm not ready to say I'm going to retire, but if I can play the last 15 games of the year, that would be good enough for me.” CSNNW.com


The above quotes are stolen from Hoopshype.com. You have probably already seen them. I find them curious. First it seems like he is done then he says he just want to play the last 15 games. What's the point of that? I was on board with then Roy gamble, I admit it. I knew the risk and was comfortable rolling the dice. It has been a failure beyond him simply not being able to play. There has been unneeded drama. Very unneeded.


I also am wondering if Khan wants to pay me $5 million dollars so that I can attempt to accomplish some of my personal goals and go out on my own terms? Do any of you? I will accept a one year deal. Ugh, this needs to end.
