Stein: Brandon Roy Says Opponents Tell Him He Looks Hurt, Foresees Roster Changes If Losing Continues

64

Also in his must-read Weekend Dime, Marc Stein of ESPN.com chats with Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who says opponents come up to him on the court to tell him he looks injured. ----------------------------- Roy: There are times I'm sitting in my [hotel] room; I'm talking with my wife or my agent, and they just try to keep me calm. But it's tough. Other players come up to me [during games and say], "I can tell." Stein: I'm guessing that's something you probably don't want to hear. Roy: Nah. "Oh, you can tell?" ... you don't want that. ... It's tough. It's tough. I'm just trying to be positive. These guys do a good job of trying to pick my spirits up. We've got good guys here. ... I'm trying to make sure I stay around the guys and not focus on me. ----------------------------- Stein also notes that Roy potentially sees roster moves on the horizon because of Portland's early-season struggles. ----------------------------- "We've heard [media say] that if we that don't start winning then [the Blazers] are gonna make some changes," Roy said. I think that's only normal. You gotta win. Everybody wants to win now, I don't know what's going to happen, but of course if we don't win we're probably going to have some changes around here." ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
