What a weekend for Blazers Guard Brandon Roy and Blazers fans. Blazer fans have waited 7 years for an All-Star and Brandon is about as good and classy as you get.
Brandon played in both the Rookie Challenge and the All-Star game and he actually had better stats in the All-Star game. Friday the sophmores beat the rookies 136-109. Brandon had 17 pts, 2 rebs and 7 assists. The West lost to the East in the All-Star game and Roy had 18 pts, 9 rebs and 5 assists. Brandon hit 8 of his 10 shots.
After the rookie game...Brandon said on TNT the Blazers are going to make another push in the second half of the season and try and nock off some of the better teams. It was great to see Brandon represent Portland so well in New Orleans...and it's going to be great to see the second half of the Blazers season!
