    Brandon
    I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you. When I lived in Oregon from 2007 to 2009, it was great pleasure to watch your plays. My favorite memory is when Blazers drafted you in 2006. I really miss you and wish you will be back some day. Good luck to you and your family.

    Dear Brandon Roy,

     It's so sad to see you go and at such an early age. You were one of the best guards the NBA has ever seen. You have willed the Blazers back so many times... I hope you will change your mind and play for a couple more seasons... 



                                            Sincerely, Cole

    Brandon makes me believe in the good of the organization again.  He brought back that hope for me, the happy memories of what the Blazers once were.  I felt proud to be a Blazers fan.  I was confident that he would overcome this hurdle, just as he had in the past.  We would see him on the floor again, maybe not cutting as fast, but still giving us that spark, that energy, when we needed him to.  I just knew he would come back and do great things, and to even think of using the amnesty on him was horrible.  We owed him the chance to show us what he could still do for us, what he wanted to do.  He brought this team from the brink of utter collapse, and made it Rip City again.  When the injuries started hitting, you felt horrible, and even if you thought he was rushing back too fast, too soon in his recovery, you knew that he was going to give it his all, and carry us once again, even though we knew it was time we helped him with that load.  We kept hoping for one more miracle, one more Game 4 performance.



    Brandon is going out on his own terms, not letting anyone dictate how and when it will end.  He is going out while he still has a chance to be with the family he so cherishes, to be able to still play with his beloved children while his knees let him.  That means more to him that tearing them up even more for a championship.  His children are still relatively young, and he has more years to keep up with them then he would a playing career.  Devastating news to us, yes, but ultimately the right decision to make.  If you have to choose between your family and your job, family will always win.  As it should.  Brandon is protecting the future of his family, so his children with have many more happy memories of time with their father, a mobile father.  You cannot blame him for that.



    I think of all that Brandon has done for us, and all I can say is, through my tears, Thank You.  Thank you for helping this fan believe again.  Thank you for giving me hope.  Thank you for taking me back to the happy times I did have before.  Thank you for everything.  And I don't think it is too much to add, to us, now you are not only The Natural.  You have become Mr. Rip City as well.  And soon, we will see you again, as we hang your number in the rafters with all the other greats.  Good luck in the next chapter in your life, and know that you will always be a Trailblazer to us.     
    I am a fan of seeing what is coming for us in the future...

    Thank you Brandon for being a great ambassador for our team and city.  As a coach and an educator I always point to you on the correct way of how an athlete should conduct themselves.  Thank you for the memories on the court, and thank you for being a inspiration off the court.

    Thank You Brandon for all the memories in RIP CITY that you have contributed to our Basketball Community, on and off the court. You are one of the classiest human's that the league and our city has ever seen, and I hoping that more college players come into the league with a head like yours. I wish you the happiest path for you and your family, and I will always embrace your smile. RIP CITY B-ROY #7!

    B-Roy...thanx for allowing us to believe in the Blazers again!  U brought pride back to a team that was in disarray.  I've always been proud to be a Blazer fan even through the hard times.  U made it so much easier for us and did it w/ class!  I have so many memorable moments of how super U r...but I'll def never 4get the game winner against Houston a couple yrs back.  I literally jumped out of my seat and ran around my house after that shot!  I wish U the best in all ur future endeavors.  Hopefully, u'll stay w/ the Blazers in some capacity!

    Brandon Roy, you are a class act. I'll never forget the game winning three you hit against the Rockets in overtime, 2008. It was such an exciting moment that I kissed the girl standing next to me at the bar. Good luck with your future endeavors. You will be missed.

    I don't know what to say really... I look up to you a lot, I even wear #7 after you! I'm going to miss you in the game, and I'll still cherish the memories and moments of excitement you granted me. Although you're gone from the game, I'll still use your game as something to look at... Basically I'ma jack your moves hehe.

    Keep your head up, God has something greater planned for you... Can't wait  for my match tomorrow and rep my #7 in your name

    The way you carry yourself off court is only just one of the ways you're my hero. Basketball has been the only sport I've ever kept up with, and I can honestly say you alone brought me back to watching it even during very busy times. You definitely did the right choice putting health and family over trying to do the impossible (which we all know you can do and are unfair to expect that from you). Thanks for always giving it your all in your cool nonchalant manner. It's something I take from you whenever I work out =)

    My greatest memory of Roy? How about driving down the lane with 3 seconds left and dishing out to Outlaw for the win. How about Roy and Blake high fivein after a big play. How about  all the unselfish things that Roy did for this team and how he helped give us all hope when there was no hope to be had.

    Roy will be missed from this team.

    Hearing that  Bradon is retiring was pretty out of the blue, especially considering that he's only 27. But once I realized that I wouldn't see #7 anymore, it made me think. Brandon, theres no way to thank you for everything you've done for us, the city and the team. In fact, thank you probably isn't even a big enough word. You gave everything you had everynight, and not a lot of people do that anymore. But what you did wasn't just on the court, you made this team your team, you made it a legitimate team again. You made people who had turned away from the team come back. My dad hated watching blazers games because of the jailblazers, and then you came along and we ended up watching games together. You deserve your number at the top of the rose garden because even though it was such a short time we had together, you contributions were above and beyond. I wish you the best man, and while I hope that maybe one day you have a comback, I know that if this is the end, then the memories I'm left with will last a lifetime. Thank you.

    Dear BROY, The Natural, #7, Rip City's Star, Mr. Roy,

    I have always been a fan of this franchise since I was introduced at age 6. I am about 2 years older than you. I stuck with the Blazers through the dark ages. I supported for a lot of players that had outstanding basketball talent. I guess when you only have one pro team, you live and die by them. When  you came to Portland, I just really cannot express to you how much life you injected into our building. You gave us hope in a league completely dominated by stars and their salaries, the hope for Blazer fans that we could compete and even beat the elite teams. I could tell you were good when you dropped 20 in your first game against your hometown Sonics. With each time you would step onto the court that rookie season, I just kept getting more excited about the next game. We were told you were a 4 year rookie that knew the game well. But you still just kept on raising the bar. Eventually the entire league wasn't sure what league you were in. I think some were scared you were going to take what Kobe Bryant did and go a step further. Your big shots are classic. You know the game. You know the court. You can shoot when clock is winding down we're always expecting a miracle, something magical. It's your drive, love of the game, natural instinct; you are one with the game. I can see it when you handle the ball or fade in your shot or how about posterize Chek Samb for a huge dunk! The Houston 3 at the buzzer! The 52 points you put down in 5 feet of snow that warmed this city up and sent the Suns leaving cold. The New York game -my sister was there. She still goes on and on. And I was front court and center the first time you took on LeBron at the Garden, I remember him scowling A LOT as Portland won the game. Something like this takes the life right out of you. I lost the drive to follow basketball now that your not gonna play for the Blazers. I'll be strong. We'll miss you and you don't deserve this. I, for one, would rather see you out there with your family being the great mentor and role model you are, healthy, than sacrifice any of it for the Blazers. We all love you B ROY and sorry for the long message here. If you do come back for whatever reason I will support you.You are a true class act and model citizen. I hope you have the best Holiday imaginable given the circumstance, I hope there's no doubt in your mind that this franchise acknowledges what you did and is grateful, I personally wish you the best.  God Speed! 






    I am a fan of Never giving up. I will be a Blazer fan for all of my life. Rip City!

    I posted once but it may have said to much.



    You are already a winner and no one in the world can take that

    You are blessed with two great families, your own and the Blazer family

    IMO, it is better to retire after accomplishing your goals then to retire and never reaching any of your goals

    You are a hero and have millions of fan's me included

    Your decision not to further deteriate your knee may be wise.



    You served us great and I for one am very proud of you.



    countless of times with 8 minutes to play, if we are within 10, BRoy takes over and we win the game so many times it almost became automattically. Those are wonderful memories



    You will be missed

    As many of us our on this board, I was born in Portland, have grown up and Portland, and therefor bleed scarlet and black.  Some say we are passionate to a fault here in Portland and Brandon, I think it's obvious to see that our passion doesn't waiver when our beloved leader of the franchise is no more.  You are the epitome of a Trail Blazer.  We don't ask for much here, we want our Blazers to be great people that try hard on the basketball court, people we can be proud of, and you sir, always surpassed those criteria.

    You are loved, supported and admired for your time here.  I am not alone, nor ashamed to say as a 25 year old man I cried at the news of this and I was so heart broken yesterday that I've literally been up all night unable to sleep.  I can't imagine how hard it is to be taken from the profession that you've dedicated your life to so I won't try, however we all want you to know that we support you.  Hold your head high, you are a Blazers legend now and always will be.  

    The city went into an uproar with the thoughts of the team waiving you before the season, we had your back then and always will now.  Thank you for everything you've done for the team, the city, the community.  I am still stunned at this as I know you are.  My friends and I have reached out to each other for support, we feel as if we've lost a close family member.  It definitely cuts deep.  While we may have a few friends to reach out to, Brandon, you have the entire Blazer Nation to reach out to.  

  1. Posted 12/10/2011 10:04 AM

    Brandon, 
    Thanks for everything you have done in RipCity.  You have truly brought this team up.  You are an amazing basketball player and an amazing person.  We will miss but thank you for all you have done :)

    Brandon,
    You gave me one of the greatest days of my life and my greatest sports memory ever: Last season, playoff game against The Mavs, everyone had given up and then you swoop in like you always do and saved the day with one of the greatest comebacks ever! I am so thankful I got to be there, especially now that I won't get to see you play anymore. Add that memory to all the other amazing things I've seen you do on the court and this is certainly a tragedy in Blazer nation as well as the game of basketball. Sometimes the cards you get dealt in life absolutely suck; this is definitely one of those times, but it's obvious that you will go on to do bigger and better things. God has a plan my friend, and someone as extraordinary as you, on and off the court, is surely not finished showing the world what you can do. You will be sorely, sorely missed as a player and as a person but I will be excited when you visit at games and very excited to see what is next for you. Thank you for all you have given. Best of luck and lots of prayers for you and yours. Once a Blazer, always a Blazer!! #FANmily! <3

    I have been blessed to watch one of the great ones both on and off the court. I was lucky enough to watch game 4 against Phoenix in person, loving every minute of seeing you come back to the court. With four minutes and fifty six seconds, and eight days removed from surgery, you went up for a three. Nothing it the world could convince me that the ball was not going in and I rose up as you did with my arms in the air. *swish* nothing but the bottom of the net. The Rose Garden exploded and from that point on I felt assured that we would win that game. Brandon, with so many fond memories of your late game heroics, you unselfish play style, and your fun-to-watch play style, you will truly be missed. Thank you for all that you have done for the organization and it's fans, we all loved you. I will be praying for you and will always think of you as our all star, thank you.

    Thanks for all you've done for the Blazers, Brandon.  I'm glad you'll be able to spend more time with your family.  Perhaps there's a future still for you with the organization...  Asst coach, GM, player mentor, etc., etc.  It's been fun watching you!!!

    Dear Brendon!



    I'm just wandering, what else could say to you, that the others didn't say. But I don't know. I'm sure, it was a very hard deceison, but i'm sure, you chosen wisely.

    The most of you have is your family, and your health. Keep them!

    But

            please

                       never

                                ever

                                        leave

                                                 us, your true friends, your fans, your frenchise.



    Please stay with us as a member of the coach team, or something like that - if it's possible.

    I know, it's hard, because your heart is a heart of a champion, and it's call you onto the court, to help to the team. I know, it's hard just standing by the sideline, but i'm sure, you could help your team with your wise, with your high basketball IQ, and last, but not least with your presence.



    I'm sure, you are one of the greatest Blazer ever played in our frenchise. We can't lose you for ever!

    Brandon,
    We in Portland love you.  I am a season ticket holder and have watched you play since you became a Blazer.  I still get chills when I think about you in the playoffs last year.  Wow you are great.  Not only can you play the game, but you have heart and loyalty.  We as Blazer fans are very loyal to our team, but often times don't feel that you as players are loyal to your team.  You absolutely are not that player.  You had a hard decision to make, and I think you did the right thing all around.  I am a grandmother and mother and right now I wish I could just come up to you and give you a great big hug for all you have done for the Blazer, their fans, and Portland.  We will miss you and I hope that someone is smart enough on the owner/management end to hire you on as a coach or something for the Blazer.  We love you Brandon.

    Brandon was the reason I came back to this team after suffering through the Jail Blazer era. As soon as he stepped foot on an NBA court I had to tune in! After the game winning shot against Houston I went down to my nearest Foot Locker and purchased your Nike basketball shoe. I proudly wore that shoe playing pick up games for the next two years! Thank you for all the unforgettable memories. You were taken from the game too soon...

    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...
