Default Brandon Roy Breaking Down?

Personally, I'm not reading too much into this, but I think it is relevant seeing as some here still mention Roy as a missed opportunity.

"Does it concern me? Yeah," Roy told The Oregonian following Tuesday's shootaround. "I would love to play more minutes and have a much better body, but it's just not the case, so I have to try and make the most of what it is. I had a phone call yesterday and in talking to a few people, it is somewhat of a reality check. This is what it is, and now you have to make the most of it."

Brandon Roy of Portland Trail Blazers will limit minutes due to nagging injuries - ESPN

Portland can't catch a break. That being said, this was a concern before draft night if I remember correctly. One of the reasons he fell.

Roy is breaking down because he busts his butt and leaves it all on the floor.

Bargs will never break down...and not because he is durable.

Give me a break.... not sure why you have to bash Bargnani for this story. Shows a level of unnecessary hatred... or an unplaced mancrush...

It's unfortunate some are more durable than others.... I do think the story is exaggerated a little, but Roy is an old 26.

He's one of a few that still holds a grudge over the 2006 draft.

Original post mentioned the "missed opportunity". We drafted Bargs instead of Roy. So there is relevance.

Bosh on his own is not enough as we all know. Pairing him with Bargs didnt work at all. Having a PG/SG like Roy would have made us a much better team...in hindsight.

Hence the Bargs-bashing. Not hatred etc.
