Nothing against Damian Lillard because he’s one of my favorite players in the league, but every time I see Lillard hit a game winner, put up 50 or surprise us with an unexpected dunk while wearing a Trailblazers jersey, I can’t help but think that should be Brandon Roy doing it.

The Portland guard was on the path to greatness that Lillard is now on. So all I can do is hope Lillard reaches that greatness that he deserves for him and for Roy.

If you think i’m over-hyping Roy just because we didn’t get to see him fulfill his potential, what do you think about Metta World Peace saying Roy is better than Kobe and Kobe himself saying Roy had no weakness in his game?

“Roy 365 days, seven days a week. Roy has no weaknesses in his game.” – Kobe when asked who the toughest player to defend in the Western Conference was.

“I told him I don’t know of any player outside of myself that has no weaknesses besides him. If you think about it, he can go left and pull up and shoot. He can go right and pull up and shoot. He can fade left shoulder, he can fade right shoulder. He can shoot the long ball. He can finish at the rim. He can shoot free throws. He has no weaknesses in his offensive game.” – Kobe talking about B. Roy

Unfortunately his knees were as flawed as his game was flawless and we only got to see 6 seasons of him. But everytime I watch Damian Lillard play, I get to see a little of Brandon Roy, even if it is just memories.
