Re: Brandon Roy still trying for comeback, lacks lift in knee but feels good
The problem is, Roy isn't just going to spontaneously regrow the missing parts of his knee. He's not going to "get better" barring some sort of surgical intervention (and I'm shocked there doesn't seem to be something out there for him. We can reconfigure inkjets to print functioning livers, for ****'s sake). He has to reconfigure his game to function without athleticism. He has to turn into Larry Bird, and that's a tall order.
Greg Oden actually has an easier road ahead of him. He could come back close to what he's supposed to be.
