Re: Brandon Roy Update

Yikes. I'm not surprised, but really, that sucks bad for Brandon and the Timberwolves.

Should've stayed retired, BRoy.

Re: Brandon Roy Update

Time for Brandon to hang up the sneakers and possibly go into coaching?

Re: Brandon Roy Update

Well......yea. I mean, the guy already retired because his knees are bone-on-bone. Like I said over the summer, he might be able to be the basketball equivalent of a closer when you need buckets in close games, but if they try to play him anywhere near starters' minutes his body's just going to break down very quickly. It still wasn't a bad signing by Kahn, though. There wasn't anyone noteworthy available to Minny with that cap space, so they took a gamble for two years on Roy at $5mil per. Worst-case scenario he's a mid-sized expiring contract next year that they can package for another gamble. Roy should have been limited to 10-15 minutes a night off the bench from day one, however.

Me. You think this is a disaster? 2 years, 10 million?

Meanwhile the wolves are 500 without love, Rubio and Roy.

Re: Brandon Roy Update

Man you can't be surprised. Your shit was bone on bone a couple years ago...that don't change. It was just a matter of time sadly.

Damn he didn't even get to get off for another huge game before this shit creeps back in

Re: Brandon Roy Update

Ouch. Is dude seriously going to try to come back from this surgery?

Roy shot a paltry 31.4 percent from the field for a 5.8 ppg average in five games (all starts) before being shut down with knee pain.

You're telling me Roy has a guaranteed 2 year contract?

It's the same thing the Pacers did with David West, only the West signing was a resounding success while Roy doesn't look like he's going to pan out. It was a medium-risk, high-reward gamble from the get-go.

I don't think West was as risky seeing as he didn't retire though.

Re: Brandon Roy Update

Well, no, West wasn't as risky, but that's why they got a guy whose peak was much higher for half of what West got. It's unlikely to pay off, but it's definitely not going to become a salary albatross.
