The Brandon Roy story is a sad one, given how explosive the former Trail Blazers guard could be and how great he would have been if not for his horrifically bad knee problems. It always felt like we were on borrowed time with him considering the red flags that had been raised regarding his knees beginning in college, and ultimately they proved to be his undoing. Despite a brilliant beginning that saw Roy average over 21 points per game between 2008 and 2010, early in the 2010-11 season he hit a wall and had to miss significant time due to further breakdown of the cartilage in his knees and was forced to retire at the end of the season. The Trail Blazers amnestied the five-year, $82 million extension he had signed in August of 2009, and after an ill-fated five game comeback attempt last season with the Timberwolves Roy was done.
