I made a $20 bet with a good buddy of mine that Rudy will have more professional career basketball points, from this point forward, than Brandon Roy. He took my bet without hesitation... at first... What's your vote?
I am very concerned about Roy's knees, and their ability to hold up given his utilization rate and style of play. Does he have a decade left? 5 years? I dunno...
Given Rudy's likely return to Europe, where he routinely averaged 20 with less wear and tear, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Rudy play quite a few more years than Brandon. But given that BRoy averages a good thousand more points a year when healthy, this is absolutely a risky bet - and as a Blazer fan, one I'd be very happy to lose, BTW...
If my calculations are correct, Roy leads with 5532 in 4 seasons to Rudy's 4437 since 02. While I don't like spotting BRoy over 1000 points, I'd also be willing to bet that Rudy is dang close to passing Roy in total career professional basketball points...
Who will have more professional basketball points from this point forward, Brandon or Rudy?
Not even close, Brandon by a mile... (283 votes)
Interesting, but I think BRoy will last long enough to take it. (110 votes)
If Rudy goes back to Europe for 10 years, I could see it... (107 votes)
BRoy's knees won't even let him reach 10,000 pts. Rudy easy. (17 votes)
