How is Roy not a great player?
Let me see your top ten then justin.
Ask Artest how good roy is if he wasn't good then he wouldn't be a lock for the 2010 team next summer ,..IMO roy is second best SG in the league right now. people say he not a star cause he's not selfish at all he loves the word teamwork Kobe is selfish only pass when people say he be shooting all the time,Wade is good but the only thing he got on roy is Defense. Wade say he want better players around him but ill wait and see (he needs his shots).
What up SDE. Where you been? I remember when Artest said Roy was his toughest guard and the first player to score 40 points on him.
Dhamp...the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.
ok now we going a lil over board..roy is not better then wade and isnt even close to kobe sde...kobe was selfish because he had to be. that seemed to be the same thing that they said about jordan...anyway roy is good but he isnt nor will he ever be on kobes level
anyone who thinks b roy isnt a top 10 player doesnt watch the blazers. he is so clutch and does everything well the dude doesnt have a weakness. he is kind of like the tim duncan of the guards. and saying he isnt athletic is a joke he is deceptively quick and has a nice vert. he does whatever the team needs him to do to win. dhamp you really dont know what your talking about, how old are you anyways?
D hamp im good took a break.. some citrusDi@khead was talking a while back
But pause imo roy is better than dwade, roy is more consitant and plays every year, but im not going to lie wade goes in and work hard ...PAUSE on the kobe level never said he was on kobe level see Kobe had to work hard at where he at now sure he was good as a young player but he wasn't as good as LBJ or Melo was was at a young age. Kobe is scary great seen it in pickup ball he dont miss
i just cant see roy as better then wade..roy is good i will give him that but i dont think he could constantly take over for awhole season like wade can with as lil talent as he had oon top of the fact that wade has lead his team to a title and looked like the mirror image of jordan while in the finals. i really feel if wade was on the blazers team instead of roy then they would have gotten to the western conference finals
Once again PAUSE Shaq was the reason wade got that championship ok wade took the game over thats what he do but dallas fell apart like always.Wade on the Blazers sounds great but thats it it sounds good. Wade will demand the ball all the time blazers is a team filled with Egos L Alridge isnt with wade gunning and greg oden will never develop his game plus he will be in the west where its much harder. Why do you think Miami is a bad team if wade leaves Beazy and them will explode
There's no way Brandon Roy is as good as Wade. No way. Its not even a question.
for one miami isnt a bad team and 2 the blazers have a better team right now. wade showed early in his career that he can pass the ball more if need be when he has more talent.. and on that championship team that was wades team..shaq was the second fiddle...theres a reason dwade is picked first team all nba over brandon roy
Dwyane Wade nearly single-handedly won that Finals series against Dallas. Shaq did not have the biggest impact on that team. Wade was never the 2nd option on the Heat with Shaq there. He actually hasnt been a 2nd option in his whole career. Wade is simply better than Brandon Roy.
And wade averaged more assist on a team with less talent. hes just a better overall player no matter how u look at it..better set up man, better defender,steals,blks,rebounds,...its actually not even that close
"Brandon Roy is NOT a great player" huh? excuse me... can i hear you say that gain? maybe my ears are hurting...
"Brandon Roy is NOT a great player" what? those words... can they even be put together in a sentence?????
What else should Roy prove to everyone that he is GREAT? Nothing... The leadership is there... The offense is there... The winning attitude is there... But please never say Brandon is NOT a Great Player... People who say those things should be crucified... It won't take long for the Blazers to be a threat in the West next season...with a healthy Oden and Aldridge to back him up, definitely he is going to lead the Blazers deeper than before...
how many guys go into a situation where they are arguably the best player on their team? If DRose would've gone to a place like Memphis where he would have been hands down the best player, I think he would have shown way more than OJ. 18 ppg is good, especially for a rookie, but SOMEONE has to score on that team and SOMEONE has to take shots and most of the time it's either OJ or Gay taking em... and SOME of them are bound to go in ;)
and i'll take your and Q's word that GAy was the #1 option, since I didn't see all that many games. when it came down to crunch time in the games I saw, it was Mayo-Mayo-Mayo, like I said earlier.
1-1 asst-to ratio? and the guy wants to be a PG? that's pedestrian to me... same with getting to the line 3.5 times/gm...
my top 10 in no particular order
Kobe, Lebron, Paul, Wade, Duncan, Garnett, D. Williams, Arenas, Nowitzki, Howard
lol..most shooting guards as rookies have low assist to turn over ration because there job is too score..im pretty sure if he was on the bulls with a ben gordan and kirk and tyrus and noah to throw passes too then his assist to turnover ration would have been higher. he put up his points while facing nightly double teams. would rose be able to do it...im not so sure because his jumper is still suspect and hes not the brightest of kids... and fizer whats youre definition of great?..if roy is great then kobe wade dhoward, and lebron would be considered what, since they are on a different level then roy
pedestrian: lacking excitement; dull....
that's all im saying.... i was hoping for more outta the guy. he could have gotten those numbers in his sleep.
yeah prob not even a top 10 player..but roys a strong 11
Arenas is not a top ten player.
