Brandon Roy has one of the sadder stories in recent memory as far as injuries are concerned. The former Trailblazer was slowly developing into a premier player and arguably one of the best shooting guards in the league by his fourth year, but a slow degeneration of his knees led to his premature retirement. Roy had arthroscopic surgery on both knees and even tried the same platelet treatment Kobe received in Germany. He then attempted a comeback, but he just wasn't what he used to be and was waived shortly thereafter.
