    Former Trail Blazers star Brandon Roy was introduced in Minnesota this morning, and among the highlights from his press conference was his statement that it was not his decision to retire in Portland.

    Here's the best of what's being said on the subject from trusted sources in Twitter, largely Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune:

    Good luck, brah!  Hopes da best for ya but you prolly gonna end up nothin more than Andre Kirilenko's hall pass choice of the year.  Man oh man could I have used one a them hall passes back in the joint.  One damn conjugal woulda saved a lot a brothers from goin insane. 

    You know Kirilenko lookin at Pretty Boy Roy and tempting to swing some clubs when Masha goes to Russia.  Hey Roy, watch yer bunghole!

    You and I have something in Common, Common:)  Wish BRoy the best, always.  Class athlete, Portland was blessed to have him for the time we did...period.  With Roy though, putting my fan-dom aside for a moment, I worry about the MAN (not the player) and his family, particularly his kids.  I wonder at what age they might have to help take care of dad.  I know of the drive, the passion the man must possess...his thirst unquenched, however sometimes we need those closest to us to save us from ourselves. 

    I wrote on these boards two years ago I felt the team and organization was putting too much of the team's load on one horse.  That horse, Roy, was more than willing to accept the challenge and was clearly the most capable.  Hearing him now say starter minutes has me thinking back...

    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...
