Brandon Roy's #7 Jeresy MUST be retired

By BR#7RetireHisJersey Posted in: BrandonRoy
The Portland Trail Blazers MUST retire Brandon Roy's #7 jersey. Not for us, I think we all know what he did for this team, but for the generations after us and for Roy himself. He must not be left to vanish into NBA history as just another injury plagued player. He Revived us, gave us hope, gave our kids a man to idolize both on the court and off of it. No one will ever be able to wear HIS jersey and compare to him so we MUST retire it. It is a small token of appreciation for a man who gave us so much but one we have the power to do and we must do it. For Roy #7

  1. I agree 100%. B Roy has done so much for Portland in such a short time. I don't know if teams have retired a number after a player only played for such a short time (or if they can), but if any player deserves it, its Brandon Roy. #7 needs to be hanging in the rafters among the other Blazer greats.

  2. I'm there with you. Brandon's number should hang from the rafters.

  3. Thanks guys, I'm a fan from Washington. So I got to see Brandon play a lot and it was an honor. Newellbrian, I don't believe there is any limit to when or why a number can be retired considering it is up to the owner and organization and not a set rule of the NBA. Although not the NBA but consider the retiring of the #12 for the 12th man of the Seattle Seahawks, a number was retired for no actual player at all. Any way I just hope that they can provide this honor. Although I am not sure with Brandon being as humble and gracious of a man that he is, whether or not he would ever say he deserves it, so its our job to brag for him.
