View Full Version : Brandon Roy: Third Best SG in NBA?

It's debatable whether Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade is the best shooting guard in the league.
I think Brandon's only real competition for third best is Joe Johnson. Johnson's team is a fourth seed behind three of the top four teams in the league. The reason I put Brandon ahead is because he does more with less. Johnson has star players Smith, Horford, and Bibby to work with. Brandon's only established help is LaMarcus Aldridge. Everybody else is either too young or too mediocre to be stars.

idk how you can say mike bibby is a star or that the blazers have a bad team around roy, but yeah he is the 3rd best sg.

yeh i say hes the third. hes like the gaurd version of duncan imo. hes pretty fundamental and doesnt seem to mind not being in the spotlight

Portland has some amazing talent, and while they aren't necessarily established, neither is Horford, and Bibby's starting the downturn of his career. Joe Johnson's reputation has suffered because he was on such horrible Hawks teams for so long. Having said that, Brandon Roy's still better, but Roy is in a better situation.

Yes he is.

idk how you can say mike bibby is a star or that the blazers have a bad team around roy, but yeah he is the 3rd best sg.

Mike Bibby is a star point guard (not a superstar). I didn't say Portland had a bad team around Roy; just no established stars.

Man this is tough. But.. I think I would rather have Roy. But it is incredibly close

03-03-2009, 03:35 PM
Roy is the 3rd best SG in the NBA, no doubt about it. Johnson is a great player, but Brandon has him beat for sure.

03-03-2009, 03:38 PM
I can definetly go with Roy as the 3rd best sg in the NBA. I think he and Joe Johnson are pretty close. Much like Wade and Kobe are really close. I think it may just come down to a prefence of style.

However, I reccomend this article (http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1151486/index.htm) about Brandon Roy.
