Brandon Roy had a tumultuous 2010-11 season due to issues with both his knees and going into the upcoming season the former NBA All-Star says he has no expectations for his role on the Blazers. "I just don't even want to put anything out there," Roy, 27, tells The Oregonian. "I don't want to get hopes up one way or the other. I'm just trying to work to get better. And if I surprise a million people, that's better. Hopefully, I can surprise some people." Roy admitted that all the talk that his NBA career an an elite player is over has motivated him. "I'm definitely fine with how some things are said, and what people are saying about me," Roy said. "I kind of like to be doubted and counted out. That's a good place for me. I like this role." Roy later added, "I don't have to be The Guy, but just a focal point again, to where -- not to knock a player -- but if Jason Terry is guarding me, then my team can believe I can expose that matchup. That's part of getting my confidence back to where I can give confidence back to Coach and the organization." Roy, to preserve his knees, will probably enter training camp as the backup shooting guard behind starter Wesley Matthews.
