If Portland can get someone like Demarcus Cousins to go along with their backcourt.... Watch out

Brandon Roy was a better player.
People look at his stats and they don't jump at people but those Blazers teams pace was really slow. Compared to today's Blazers teams.

Lillard is a little better of a 3 point shooter but Roy is better at everything else. I pick Roy.

B-Roy was so clutch. Both obviously immensely talented but I think BRoy was better.

Brandon Roy was easily the better player. I think what a lot of people didn't see is Brandon Roy had a very short prime. He had many games early in his career where he'd have near triple doubles. The box score would be filled. As his knees started to go he wasn't the same greater or rebounder.


Only thing I didn't like about Roy is he wasn't good off ball. Too much of his scoring was ISO. He was very good at it but that didn't lead to team success.

The Blazers record with Oden, Aldridge, and Roy playing was something like 55-10. That team never became what it could have become.

Lillard, Roy, Batum, Aldridge, Oden.

I'll take the championship thanks.

Brandon Roy was special.

Were talking 25\5\5 up to 28\6\6 every season in his prime on efficient % and leading that team with Aldridge to 50+ wins every year.

He was the 3rd best SG in the league by his 3rd year behind Prime Kobe and Wade, ahead of players like Manu, T-Mac, Vince, Ray Allen, Rip Hamilton, etc.

Such a ****ing shame his injuries ended his career so early.

Easily Roy, and in this PG saturated state of the league, he would be even more valuable.
