Brandon Roy's Legacy: A Selfless Superstar

Brandon Roy walked into the crowded Seattle gym with the basketball reputation most collegians could only dream of. But the young Roy was still just 16. Shy yet confident, he was always respectful and keenly aware of his surroundings. When he started to play, the entire gym stopped to watch because people knew they were about to witness something very special. Roy had that effect on people.

In the 2000s, no gym in Seattle featured more talent than St. Joseph's. Local boys who made it big; Jamal Crawford, Terrence Williams, Martell Webster, Marvin Williams, Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks and Roy all frequented St. Joe's gym. On any given night, you could have six or seven future NBA players playing like it was the NBA Finals. Having been a backup guard on an Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team alongside Roy, I had the good fortune of seeing him firsthand long before most. Trust me when I tell you, there is nobody like him.

The 27-year-old -- who just last week retired due to degenerative knees -- developed into an All-American at Washington after spurning offers from elite programs. He didn't want to go to a nationally known program; he wanted make his hometown Huskies a premier program.

"I could see going to another place like Arizona or Kansas," Roy told the Seattle P-I in October 2002, "but I think we can do the same thing at the U-Dub. We can be as good as those programs in a year or two."

When he couldn't qualify academically, he worked at a container company in West Seattle to earn extra cash, followed by study sessions and hoop workouts at St. Joe's. While most kids would shy away from the public due to embarrassment, Roy embraced the challenge. When I would ask him how things were going, he smiled and told me he how he refused to give up until he got into school.

Eventually, Roy did just that. After leading UW to three straight NCAA Tournament bids and two Sweet 16 appearances, Portland acquired him in a trade with Minnesota after he was selected sixth overall in the 2006 NBA Draft. With grace and elegance, he quickly became one of the best guards in the league, earning Rookie of the Year and All-NBA honors with equal parts dazzle and clutch play, including a barrage of game-winning shots. In a span of four years, Roy averaged 20 points, 5 assists and nearly five rebounds, while making three All-Star games and leading the organization to four consecutive playoff appearances. He helped transform it from the embarrassing "Jailblazer" days to good-guy team. He was a splendid playmaker, selfless passer and gifted scorer. His grace on the floor was undeniable. The Blazers in turn, rewarded him with a robust five-year, $82 million contract. Back home in Seattle for the offseason, he organized charity games around the city and at his high school. Roy was a bona fide superstar.

But with the exception of the size of his bank account and his general celebrity, nothing about Roy had changed. To the people who knew him as a skinny high school kid, he was still affectionately, just Brandon.

But, in an instant, his knees began to hurt, and then really hurt. After surgery following a collision with Ron Artest in the 2010 playoffs, Roy began to show signs of slowing down. No longer did he have the same burst or explosion. Always a cerebral player, Roy was still effective as a pull-up shooter and passer, but the dynamic ability on the ball had vanquished. During the 2011 season, he played in just 47 games. He looked tired and at times even sad on the court. Eventually, after operating on his knees six times, doctors told him he had zero knee cartilage left; his joints didn't work the way they once did. They told him if he continued to play, he may lose his ability to walk down the road. Under much emotion and duress, Brandon Roy was forced into retirement.

For a Portland Trailblazer fanbase that has long endured injuries to marquee players like Bill Walton and Greg Oden, the news is simply more disappointment. Roy was a fan favorite, highly respected on the floor, in the locker room and beloved in the community. But for those fortunate enough to know him before he was synonymous with NBA greatness, the news of his retirement evokes tremendous sadness and sympathy.

In a league that is constantly criticized for buffoonery, Roy was a revelation. Soft spoken, kind-hearted and immensely talented, his legacy should live on even if his knees cannot. With one of the greatest fourth quarter performances in playoff history, it most definitely will.

There is simply nobody like him.

NBA notes: Chris Paul still in limbo - Sports - The Boston Globe

Chris Paul isn’t coming to Los Angeles, at least not now.

The Clippers yesterday rejected a proposed deal by the New Orleans Hornets for the All-Star guard because the team felt “the cost was just too high,’’ general manager Neil Olshey said.

Whether the deal is altogether dead, though, remains to be seen.


“Everything’s over until it’s reborn again,’’ Olshey said. “New Orleans made a fair offer on their end. We didn’t think that it was something that we wanted to pursue at this point.’’

Olshey declined to identify whom the Clippers had offered in exchange for Paul but their package reportedly included center Chris Kaman, reserve guard Eric Bledsoe, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, and their first-round pick in the 2012 NBA draft. Reports suggested the Hornets also wanted guard Eric Gordon included.

“There wasn’t one piece or another piece that killed this deal,’’ Olshey said. “The aggregate compensation that we were going to have to convey to them was just too much.’’

It’s the second time in five days that a deal moving Paul to Los Angeles fell apart. Last week, NBA commissioner David Stern nixed a three-team trade by the league-owned Hornets, Lakers, and Rockets that would have sent Paul to Los Angeles.

The Clippers yesterday claimed veteran point guard Chauncey Billups off waivers from the Knicks. Billups averaged 16.8 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.6 rebounds in 72 games with Denver and New York last season. Meanwhile, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said the Clippers matched Golden State’s $42.7 million, four-year offer for center DeAndre Jordan. The Warriors signed Jordan to the offer sheet Sunday night.

Magic, Howard talk

The relationship between Dwight Howard and the Magic appears to be improving - at least a bit. Magic chief executive officer Alex Martins said he sat down with the All-Star center yesterday morning, a day after Howard said he hadn’t spoken to general manager Otis Smith since asking the team to be traded.

Martins said he remains confident things still can be done to convince Howard that Orlando can build a championship team.

“We have to continue to do what’s right for this organization to win a championship and the first piece of that is keeping Dwight,’’ Martins said at the team’s annual media day.

Then, after speaking at length for two straight days about all that was wrong with management, Howard said that the door remains open for him to re-sign. “As of right now, I have on a Magic uniform . . . If it’s meant for me to stay here, then I’ll stay,’’ Howard said.

Pistons cut Hamilton

The Pistons finalized what has been a formality, cutting ties with three-time All-Star Richard Hamilton. Detroit made the move after both sides agreed to terms of a buyout. Hamilton was due to make $19 million guaranteed over the final two years of his contract in Detroit. He was bought out for $11 million, saving the rebuilding team $4 million in cap space this year and $4 million more next season. Hamilton is expected to land with the Bulls . . . Former Northeastern star J.J. Barea is reportedly close to signing with the Timberwolves. The free agent point guard has spent the past five years in Dallas and blossomed during the Mavericks’ run to the NBA title last season . . . Carmelo Anthony hyperextended his left knee during the Knicks’ practice but said the injury was not a concern. “I’m fine, I’m fine. No worries,’’ the All-Star forward said . . . The Rockets claimed former Harvard star Jeremy Lin off waivers from Golden State and signed first-round pick Marcus Morris. Lin played in 29 games as a rookie last season after signing with the Warriors as an undrafted free agent . . . Guard Vince Carter signed his contract with the Mavericks and is expected to take part in practice today.

Grizzlies keep Gasol

Marc Gasol announced on Twitter that he has reached a tentative agreement with the Grizzlies, keeping him in Memphis. Gasol tweeted that he “can’t wait to get on the court with all my teammates!’’ The Grizzlies later confirmed the agreement. The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reported Gasol and the Grizzlies agreed on a four-year deal worth nearly $58 million. The center was a restricted free agent. The 26-year-old center averaged 15 points and 11.2 rebounds in the Grizzlies’ playoff run, an improvement from his averages of 11.7 points and 7.0 boards during the regular season . . . Point guard Baron Davis left the Cavaliers to seek a second opinion on his stiff back, an injury that has sidelined him in the early practice sessions. Davis still could be waived as part of the NBA’s new amnesty clause. Also, the team re-signed veteran guard Anthony Parker . . . The Raptors agreed to terms with guard Anthony Carter, who split last season between Denver and New York . . . The NBA legal battle is officially over. US District Judge Patrick Schiltz in Minnesota dismissed the lawsuit at the request of players and owners now that the sides have approved a new collective bargaining agreement . . . The league has put in place a concussion policy that will help determine when players return from head injuries. New protocols went into effect with the start of training camps, and the neurologist hired to lead its concussion program will be consulted before any player returns to competition.
