Not Like This, Brandon.
I woke up today to the shocking news that Brandon Roy was retiring.
It’s a tough pill to swallow when the heart and soul of the Portland Trailblazers announces we won’t get to see him play ever again.
But he did make his shorter-than-it-should-be career worthwhile.
We saw Brandon win Rookie of the Year. We watched Brandon help revive the Trailblazers franchise. We saw Brandon single-handedly lead the Blazers to a win in Game 4 against Dallas last year.
But today we learned that he won’t be lacing them up any more. I wish it didn’t have to be like this.
Thanks for the memories, B-Roy.
