The Portland Trail Blazers are paying tribute to one of the greats of their franchise.
Brandon Roy, who played with the Blazers from 2006-11, was in attendance for the Blazers’ game on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors.
Here’s a look at the quick mention of him during the game from the jumbotron:

Roy has been around the Blazers organization since retirement. This past May, Roy represented the franchise at the draft lottery.
Roy was drafted with the No. 6 overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2006, and was traded to the Blazers on draft night before playing 321 games with Portland between 2006 and 2011. Roy was amnestied by the Blazers after injuries had caught up with him.
The injured guard did sign with the Timberwolves in 2012-13, however only played five games due to injury.
Roy holds career averages of 18.8 points on 34 percent 3-point shooting, 4.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.0 steal per game.
