BR.O.Y. Earned This Award

Big ups to fellow Husky alum, Brandon Roy for winning the NBA Rookie of the Year award! Blazer's Edge is celebrating the recognition and has all the details.

This is a case of good things happening to good people. When BRoy left Garfield High School he thought his game might just be NBA-ready. He found out it wasn't, then had a couple of setbacks that humbled his game and left him with choices. Look for excuses, find someone to blame, and then fade into a has been or listen to the right people, perfect a relentless work ethic, do all you can do and then let the results speak for themselves. In choosing the latter, BRoy not only developed a very NBA-ready, all-around game, but also matured into the type of player and person often referred to as a pro's pro. Not too shabby for a rook.
