John Canzano on Roy's knee and his contract


Today (Nov 15, 2010) Canzano writes:

I'm concerned that the Blazers gave Brandon Roy a max contract without looking at an MRI of his knees. They looked, right? Please tell me they did. This is a major concern for an organization that feels like it's guessing right now. This doesn't feel like a training staff issue. It feels like a management issue.

 

On July 9, 2009 Canzano writes an article titled "Brandon Roy Should Get Anything He Wants"

Hey, what's to negotiate, Trail Blazers?

If Brandon Roy wants five years, give it to him. If he wants maximum money, give it to him. The All-Star has given the organization superior play and outstanding leadership, and the team is rising on his sweat, so if Roy wants a bobblehead doll night, or a plate of pre-game nachos in his locker every game, or if Roy asks for owner Paul Allen's underpants, make it happen.

Give Roy the keys to the franchise.

Nothing good comes until that happens.

And then this little nugget on July 13, 2009:

I expect these two sides can find common ground. If you back waaaaaaaaay up you can see why the Vulcans might want to limit their obligation to Roy, but if you get anywhere near this franchise you understand why it needs to get done.

 

See there's this little thing called the internet. It's very easy to call you out on your BS Canzano. At least acknowledge that you were lambasting the Blazer management for not presenting Roy with a max deal for max years on day one of the negotiating period - then maybe we could take you little more seriously.
