Poor guy, vastly overrated, trying to live up to expectations he could've never achieved and loses both of his knees trying.

Hopefully he recovers soon and doesn't try to do or be more than he's capable of.

I'd disagree. When healthy two seasons ago he was clearly the 3rd best SG in the league behind Bryant and Wade. If you look at his past advanced statistics, you will see he was in that elite class.

When healthy he is far ahead of Joe Johnson, Vince Carter, and the other 2nd tier SG's.

He will never hit his prime...which is really sad. He is such a great player when healthy. Unselfish, smart and clutch as hell. Too bad he had the knees of a 90 year old.

Maybe Oden can...never mind.

At least Matthews and Aldridge are keeping that team afloat in the lower playoff seeds. Credit McMillan for doing a great coaching job. Aldridge is really underrated this year.

Maybe Rudy Fernandez can finally prove himself.

he plateaued early in his career imo (by early in his career, i mean as a whole. like if he played 14 years, 5 years is early)

im not saying he was overrated though

I'd say it's some of the most beautiful basketball I've ever seen.
No one ever gives him any credit because he isn't that flashyl.
He's Tim Duncan but a SG.

He does everything right and his shot is so smooth and i'd say (when healthy) he's a top 5 scorer in the league behind Kobe, Lebron, Durant, and Melo (yeah even better than Wade)

Brandon Roy is very talented, and has a TON of heart, but he was no superstar... An All Star yes, and very good player of course, but he is now showing that he was not meant to carry that load. It's ok not everybody is supposed to do that, he is a complimentary player to a superstar or a very good post player. He and Dwight would have been a perfect match.

I don't feel for them since they kept the same damn medical staff that Walton, Drexler, Bonzi, Van Exel, Mighty Mouse, Sabonis, Pippen, Sheed, Z-bo, and other players have *****ed about being piss poor. They get what they pay for in that sense and have no one to blame for their guys breaking down but themselves.

I feel sorry for Roy, but the poor guy was damned the minute he landed there with already questionable knees. It wasn't a matter of if, but when they would give out there.

He was an all star. A superstar is someone that transcends the sport and receives global recognition. Roy didn't achieve that feat in his NBA career.

Superstar perimeter players of the last decade - Kobe, T-Mac, AI

Roy is more in the Ray Allen, Manu Ginobili, Rip Hamilton, etc. perennial all star group imo

manu never had a better year than Roy's 08-09 year. Manu is having his best or second best year ever this year.

Statistically maybe...but Manu didn't have to carry as much of a load seeing Duncan was in his prime too in 2005.And arguably the best player in the league then.

Now Duncan is slowing a bit, so Manu has to take more of a scoring burden, so his numbers look pretty. But in no way is Manu better now than in 2005. Not a chance. In his prime he was a top 3 SG, and yes, better than Roys best year...even if he did come off the bench.

As for Roy, he is one of the genuine good guys in the league...choosing 20 points and 10 dimes over 28 and 5 dimes...he was just terrific before the injury bug hit.

01-13-2011, 07:36 PM

It really sucks to see Roy's career probably over.

He was one of the few players who was a great scorer but played the game right. He was never one of the faster athletic guys, but he could get buckets on anyone.

There is a lot less true franchise players than most people believe. But he was definitely one of them.

Winning makes Superstars. He was on his way if him and Oden wouldn't have been hurt.

Excuses... about what if this had happened or that had happened... you can't change the stars to make them say what you want. Yes if Oden was healthy, he would have probably been the super star and Roy the complimentary offensive minded player. Its not winning that makes superstars, what makes superstars is doing EVERYTHING, and still managing to be a personality that draws people to them... KG was a superstar, and even though Tim Duncan is probably the second best pf of all time was never a superstar. Its that exact excuse making like in our sig, that show prevalent. "If winning 72 games were a championship the Lakers would win 72"? Are you for real? If thats the case and Kobe is the greatest competitor of all time he would win 72 just to shut people up.. You can't have it both ways.

Tim Duncan was a demon on both ends of the floor for a very long time. I dun see why he is not a superstar. the guy won 4 championships with a nucleus built around him. just becoz he has a quiet demeanor and doesn't do flashy stuff doesn't not make him a superstar.

WTF? He is now showing that injuries can rob ANYONE of their greatness, that you correlate this with what he was capable at his best is foolish. Tangent should be embarrassed that you agreed with him. That you followed this gem by saying Duncan wasnt a superstar cements your place in the PSD Hall of Shame.



I still think Manu in his prime was better than Roy ever was. Tearing through a Pistons defense that slowed Kobe as good as any team in history in the 2005 finals is a good indication.
Different rules, different focus. Roy obliterated a defense that featured Battier/Artest and keyed on him and only him. They are definitely comparable but Manu wasnt this good at 24 or however young Roy was.

I agree that if Roy would stay healthy, his prime would've prolly surpassed Manu's. He was that good. But if Manu in his prime was in Roys situation, I guarantee he would put up similair numbers if not better and produce an equal amount of wins in the process.

Even at 33, he is showing what he can do when being more a focal point on offense. Imagine being in this situation five years ago. He would put up elite numbers.

Hey I always wished he would make it to Denver all those years back but you dont need to guarantee anything, hes already put up similar numbers. The thing about Manu was always if he could stay healthy, given that hes had problem doing so in limited minutes perhaps he landed in a role best suited for his game.

Still I cant help but think your making too much of this situation thing, what Manu is doing now is no different than any other season, in fact statistically its not even his best season. His usage% has always been high so its not like having Duncan held him back hes just getting more MPG now. So much so that hes actually deferring more because of the fact that he shares more time with the starters.

All Manu being traded would have done is make him more recognizable, he would have either put up higher per game averages (the kind necessary for the average fan to take notice) or he wouldve gotten hurt from carrying the load. It definitely wouldnt have made him a different player altogether.
