Roy out for the season?

Quote:
Brandon Roy isn't sure if he'll be healthy at any point this season, and it sounds like another long layoff is inevitable.

"I think if this [pain] is with me the whole season then I don't really have a shot at playing," said Roy. "Two week stretches isn't doing it. We don't have that much longer in the season." He said he was having trouble even bending his leg recently, and owners have no choice but to fear the worst. His minutes will be spread among guys like Andre Miller, Jerryd Bayless, and Rudy Fernandez.

Problem bending his leg? Does this have anything to do with the injury he had coming into the 2006 draft?

No, that was his knee.

I think this is with his hammy.

It's an injury problem nonetheless. Wouldn't a bum knee put more pressure on your legs to work and perform?

Isn't Andrea Bargnani looking even better and better to all the "Roy should of been picked instead of Bargs" fans?

well if roy's best days are behind him then i would say he did make the right pick. Aldridge is arguably the better player as 18/8 on a playoff team at the same age as Bargnani is nothing to laugh at. A center was needed none the less so i would agree, colangelo made the right move(assuming roy is injury prone from here on out) . Still a pretty weak draft though, which is out of colangelo's hands of course

Whether it's at PF or C...There's no way Aldridge is better than Bargnani.

Not offensively. Certainly not defensively. Even when it comes to intangibles.

your just saying that because A. You overate Bargnani like many raptor fan's do or B. you hardly seen aldridge play. Guy's turn around in or out of the paint is money like bosh's and he's a much better rebounder then bargnani.

There is a reason why he got 13 mil per and Bargnani got 10, and it think it goes a little beyond colangelo's negotiation skills. he's put up 18/8 already on a decent playoff team, his percentage's weren't bad, and it looks like he's gonna do it again though he should look to improve. Bargnani may have a higher ceiling which is why i say aldridge is "arguably" better

But don't kid yourself to think Bargnani is better then aldridge clear cut, aldridge is the same age and done more so far(so far)

Aldridge has nothing on Bargnani. Andrea has a slight edge on offense, but it's not even close on defense.

oh yeah, bargnani, that defensive monster . Blocks a few shot's and all of a his D is better then aldridge?
He's doesn't even rebound the ball! There is zero hustle in his game. For every good play Bargnani makes defensively there's an offensive rebound given up on his behalf or a missed switch leading to a wide open bucket.

Aldridge has nothing on bargnani, except stat's(steal's, rebounds, points , assist's , percentages) more proven, and a nicer contract

First of all, Bargnani is averaging more ppg than aldrige so get your facts straight, kinda hurts the credibility of your argument. If Bargs played 10 games without Bosh, I'm sure his averages would be even higher as well (Roy has been injured 10 games this year). With no oden and no pryzbilla, aldridge is portlands primary rebounder. Despite this he averages only two rebounds more than bargs, who has played all season alongside one of the best rebounders in the L. Don't act like Aldridge doesn't have the 'soft' label either, so thats not really a strong point either.

your right, my bad, aldridges points are down this season by one because he's shootnig one less shot. This season he's averaging .3 points less then Bargnani at a higher pecentage(pretty much identical). aldridge still has a higher career average and i guess i put alot of stock in that 2+ rebound advantage as well as his many other advantages minus blocks and three's. He was still averaging around 8 rebounds per when oden was playing and until this year was averaging over a block per(not sure whats up with that)

I even admit Bargnani was the pick for the Raptors but its very debatable whether Bargnani is better then aldridge at this point, i honestly dont think he is.

Lol, no competition!
Bargnani is definitely better than Aldridge. Bargnani has the hot shot, he is a unique centre...
No way...
2 years and he will be the best centre in the nba.
