    From Casey-

     How is your knee feeling?

    Roy: "Great. People still don't beleive me but when I came back from Phoenix it felt great. I didn't have the strength to run and explode, but I have all that back now. I'm running, jumping, dunking again. I'm excited about that, but again, this is something that I'm going to pay attention to for the rest of my career. Always in the weight room. That doesn't mean I'm going to throw around a lot of weight, just concentrating on strengthening my quad, strenghtening my calfs and make sure my hips are loose. It's a number of things he's introduced me to."
     What do you think of the signing of Wesley Matthews?

    Roy: "I think he's going to help our team. I was a little concerned with losing Martell and not bringing Travis back. I was like 'We're getting thin on that wing.' Getting Wes -- he wants to be called Wesley -- getting Wesley was huge. That was somebody I was looking forward to playing against for the rest of my career and now he's my teammate. I'm excited about it. He's kind of like in that mold of Nicolas; they do whatever it takes to help the team win. Defend, he can score, knock down the shot. There's a number of things I'm going to talk to coach about in putting me in different postions so that way we can go bigger and put maybe Nicolas and Welsey out there together. It should be fun."
     What do you think about the way the roster is? You've got Rudy, you've got Wesley, you, Bayless, Miller, a lot of guys who play the same position.

    Roy: "I think they're saying they want to make moves. I've heard some rumors that Rudy didn't want to be in Portland and I was a little disappointed about that. I would love to have another season to play with Rudy. I think he does help this basketball team, so I'm not too quick to give him up. We'll see. We definatley need some scoring off the bench and I think if we can get, along with Andre, a point guard that can somewhat get (Fernandez) off -- I think he needs that -- he'd be more happy about staying. Until they somewhat show that then I think he'll continue to get away."


    Very good interview from Brandon. No wonder he won the media award a year or two back. Love to hear his knee is back and that he's got a personal trainer to get prevent some of these nagging injuries he has had to dealt with.

    Bout time he hired a trainer. It's great he's starting to work more off the ball, that's one part of his game that really needs work and will take him to the next level.
    I am a fan of B-Roy and LaMonster!

    I gotta tell you that is a great interview!  I have never enjoyed reading an interview with any star as much as that one.  Nice work Roy.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
