So today happened. There are a lot of things that I would like to say about Brandon. I’m going to take the rest of the afternoon and evening to think about all of those things. And I promise I’ll come with something on Saturday that will be only the smallest bit sentimental, and might help at the very least to put into perspective what Brandon Roy meant to me as a Blazer fan and as a person.
I know that writing something like will help me.
Until then, I found this today and I thought I’d share it with you. I’ve had the chance to talk with Brandon a few times. He’s always been nice to me, and as anybody will tell you he’s second to none when it comes to handing out quotes.
This comes after game six. He talks a little about that game, a little about game four, and a little about what’s ahead for him. It’s not prescient in any way, it doesn’t blow the cover off this whole ordeal, but it was the last time I spoke with Brandon, and it means a lot to me.
Thanks for letting me share.
