Blazing the Trail: ROY, BRANDON ROY is Clutch.

Posted in Uncategorized on November 13, 2010 by shotymeapparel

Name your Top Five Clutch Performance Players and I bet you wouldn’t say his Name.  In a League where Names like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Lebron James,  Kevin Durant…. you would hardly think, Brandon Roy is mentioned in the same breath.  I’m going to be bold on this topic and state that Brandon Roy is one of the TOP FIVE CLUTCH Players in the NBA.  After watching the 110-108 Loss in Oklahoma, I noticed Brandon Roy Had the Ball in his hands and either scored or made a play…for 8 straight points. When Durant missed his free throw to ice the game, the Ball should have been in Roy’s Hand.  If you Don’t agree, check out the video below.

Here are some More clips B.REAL

“I look back at [Michael] Jordan, and Kobe recently. Those guys try to dominate. You look at big men like Shaq, they dominate,” Roy said. “It was an edge. I got to get that edge. Even when I play against Carmelo and those guys, they play with that edge. They want to bury you. I’m thinking, ‘I got to get that edge.’ ”

Roy has averaged 27 points on 57 percent shooting in the four games since the Blazers fell to Denver. The Blazers won all four games. He has no plans to dial back his aggressiveness.

“Every day, I got to prepare and it’s not just a switch,” Roy said. “Kobe was saying that. We were about to play in the All-Star game, and he said, ‘Let’s go hard.’ I said, ‘Why do you want to play so hard in the All-Star game?’ He said, ‘It’s not a switch. You have to do it every day.’ I’m learning that now. It’s not a switch.

“I’ve gone so long in my life not being that way. Now, I got to turn more aggressive, more mean. I’ve never been one to be a [expletive]. But sometimes on the court, you have to be a [expletive].”

Brandon Roy is there.  Top five clutch players in the NBA. Period.
