The 10 Greatest Trail Blazers in history, ranked by Player Efficiency Rating (PER)

The best players in Portland franchise history are easy to name. But when it comes to PER, who's No. 1?

7. Brandon Roy

Brandon Roy has one of the most bittersweet career arcs in NBA history. When he was good, he was really good. Roy was the 2006-07 Rookie of the Year, made three straight all-star games from 2008 to 2010, made back-to-back all-NBA teams in '08-09 and '09-10, and earned MVP votes in the '08-09 season after averaging 22.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.1 steals with 48/38/82 shooting splits.

However, nagging knee injuries cut the 6-6 guard's career short. He was forced to retire following the 2010-11 season and only played five games in 2012-13 when he tried to make a comeback with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Had Roy been able to stay healthy and play more than five seasons in Portland, his PER of 20.1 would likely be much higher.
