expectations are roys biggest downfall


When Roy was drafted everybody knew he was going to be an nba ready contributor. A solid player for years to come, but landing on a rebuilding team allowed him to play a larger role. He became the best player on a bad team, and flourished more than expected. After being selected to three all-star game and being coined the franchise player though, Roys ability seems more pedestrian. Roys game has not changed much. he is now  just held to the standard of a superstar( which he is not) and given the attention of one by other teams. Had Roy been drafted to a playoff team he may have never become an all-star, but would have settled into the more complimentary player he was supposed to be. An excellent 2nd guy to take pressure off the number one. Roy is great at what he does, he is just asked to do too much for this team now that they are a serious contender. For those who are looking for Roy to be a dominant superstar, there is likely a lot of frustration in your future, but if we were able to get a dominant superstar to play along side our brilliant number two, the sky would be the limit. I believe that a healthy oden would be good enough to strike the right balance on our current team.  The biggest hurdle here may be convincing our lone star that he is a number two after all the propping up he has been getting for the last four years. We forced him into this role and that can be tough to undo.
