Brandon Roy likes Andre Miller. A Lot.

From a transcript of B-Roy’s recent interview on 95.5 The Game (credit: Sports Radio Interviews) Just thought I’d pass it along because it’s a somewhat intriguing read. Especially if you’re like me and have been skeptical about Andre Miller coming to Portland for 17 or so days. When #7 speaks,everyone listens. :

On what Andre Miller brings to the Blazers:

“I think the biggest thing he’ll bring is leadership to our team.  Me, and LaMarcus, and coach Nate of course have tried to do that; even coach Nate would say that you need a player out there to do it.  I would go to coach Nate a number of times this season and say, ‘You know, coach, there’s times during the game I wish there was an older, veteran guy around to help maybe show me the way.’  I think that Andre Miller, he’s the perfect guy for that.  And, not only help me out, I think Greg and LaMarcus will benefit extremely from having a pass first point guard, and a point guard that has an aura about himself.  He’s a crafty guy, he’s been in this league for a number of years, and he’s excited about being here, and he’s excited about making us better.  So, that makes me think that, ‘Eh, this guy’s gonna help make this team even better than a 54-win team.”
