To those of us that have watched Brandon Roy since Day 1, it's clear that he has a skill set that is unmatched by most players in the NBA. He seemingly has the size, strength, athleticism (when not injured), and the basketball smarts to be a future Hall of Famer. Now, I know that's a long time in the future, and it may never happen.
But, I think we're all asking...so what's the deal? Will Roy ever be better than a 20 ppg, above average scorer? Was he ever capable of becoming the next Kobe?
I don't think Roy ever wanted to be the next Kobe, but I want to hear your thoughts. Could have Roy, under other circumstances, been a Kobe-like player? Does he (or did he) ever have what it takes? Does he have the "killer drive" that Kobe clearly has?
