Until last night, I was not sold on Brandon Roy. I thought he was a bit overrated. However, yesterday I saw how dreadfully wrong I was. Brandon Roy is good.
Sure it was against a sub-par Phoenix Suns defense, but Roy showed how much potential he really has- a lot. No matter who you are going against, scoring 52 points is quite an accomplishment. But it's not just scoring 52 points. Roy has quietly led the Portland Trail Blazers to a 17-10 record, second in the Northwest. His confidence is at an all time high."I think this is by far the best offensive game I've had," Roy said. "I can't say the basket was big, but my confidence was huge tonight. I just felt like every shot I took was going to go in."- Brandon Roy
And he's humble about it. Not bragging, just stating the truth with class. Roy truly looked like a machine last night; not only did he score 52 points, he hit 19 of 21 free throws, dished out 6 dimes, and grabbed 5 boards. Roy is definitely becoming more of that all-around player the Blazers always needed.
Brandon Roy is looking great this season and is slowly becoming a superstar if he's not already. Watch out for him; when he's hot, there's no telling what he is capable of.
