Ball Don't Lie's Interview with Brandon Roy

 Nick Friedell, a contributor to Yahoo's Ball Don't Lie, had a chance to sit down with Brandon and discuss a bunch of stuff.  This guy is just an amazing individual and should be incredibly inspiring to kids of all ages.  It's people like Brandon Roy that need to be presented to the world rather than the Allen Iversons of the world.  (Different subject for a different time!)

Here is a quick excerpt on his thoughts towards Barack Obama:
BDL: You said after last Thursday's game that your shots didn't mean anything compared to what Obama accomplished. Has he inspired you to get into a political career down the line?

BR: I wouldn't say he's inspired me to get into a political career, but I think he's inspired this season to be a role model, something I wanted to do beforehand, and now that I see him, how much he motivates people that I'm around, that are in the NBA, it's inspiring for me. I think the message for him is, he can't carry all African-Americans, he needs us to step up also, and be leaders in our community, and that's what I'm trying to do.
Good luck tonight boys!  It should be a hell of a game; I think we all know the history of Wade vs. the Blazers.  Let's hope they can overcome it...

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
