What's an iRoy, you ask?

It's a special edition iPod nano. This nano is just like one you might buy in a store except it's customized to promote Roy. It features a picture of the Blazers' second-year phenom on the front and "#7 Brandon Roy, Special All-Star Edition" etched on the back. When you push the play button, a preloaded video shows a Roy highlight package accompanied by music.

uhh.. pretty unnessesary if you ask me.

Bribery or marketing?... more like big waste of money.

doesn't the owner of the Blazers also own Microsoft? Doesn't that seem weird that they'd send out Ipods?

Anyways, it's pretty bad that Blazers managment feels they have to bribe coaches into selecting Roy. I think he's good, but he's a year away from making the team.

I think it's cool a team is standing by their player but if it actually influences someone's vote..that's just wrong.
