of The Oregonian writes
that Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy nearly cried during a Game 2 loss to the Dallas Mavericks...
"There was a point in the first half, and I was thinking 'You better not cry,''' Roy said. "I mean, serious. I mean, there was a moment where I felt really sorry for myself. Then I was like, nah, you can't be sorry for yourself. I'm a grown man, but there was a moment there that I felt sorry for myself. Especially when I think I can still help.''
Roy was one of the first players to leave the locker room, but when he was stopped in the hallway, the hurt and confusion were still evident.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little hurt, or disappointed,'' Roy said. "But the biggest thing is to keep moving, to try and keep my spirits up. But it's tough man. I just …. I just always thought I would be treated better. That was a little disappointing for me.''
Roy played just eight minutes and didn't score. Click through above for Roy's full thoughts.

and where he is right now. Also, some thoughts
