Theres really nothing you can blame him. I mean, Roy is not like Yao who was 30 and realized that there were other things he could do without basketball. Roy is still young, when you are young you pursue your childhood dreams.

Didn't Portland get screwed too because Roy didn't retire?

No we used our amnesty on Roy. So he gets all his money but it doesn't mess our books up.

We already tried the retirement thing with Darius Miles and that a**hole came back and played just enough games to get his contract back on our cap. Funny how people thought Pritchard was making up how bad Miles's knees were. Look how long he lasted. These GM's don't make this stuff up. We're seeing it with Roy right now.

Miles' knees were fine, he looked good in his stint with Memphis. I think his attitude is the main problem. Where the fu*k is he now??
Last I heard he got arrested at an airport for carrying a gun

don't think it's really fair to say roy only came back for the money knowing he'd get fvcked up. it's still part of chasing his dream and b-ball players get paid like 99% of the pop doesn't. just get over it.

he was entering his prime as a borderline superstar that was continually improving, then got that all taken away from him. call him stubborn maybe but a dick or looking for a final cash out and being selfish? i think that's a bit reaching. roy's limitations are all about his body, not his mindset.

So they're only saying he's going to miss a month? With his past I can't imagine he will only miss a month.

This was the real reason he wanted to come back... he wanted that 126m contract he signed with Portland.
