It looks as if ex-Washington star and NBA Rookie of the Year Brandon Roy will be making an NBA comeback.
Roy confirmed as much tweeting from the account of former Huskies guard Will Conroy. When asked on Twitter about his future, he said “basketball god willing!!!”
Then he tweeted this when asked specifically of a comeback: “yes I’m preparing for a comeback. I’m training daily”
Conroy later tweeted “B roy says ‘thanks for all the love he received last night via twitter, and he promises to keep his fans to speed on his comeback process’”
Roy, who will turn 28 in July, was forced to retire after the 2010-11 NBA season thanks to a degenerative knee condition. He had said in February that he got the itch in February while watching the NBA All-Star Game with fellow Seattle native and current Blazers guard Jamal Crawford.
According to Crawford, who spoke with KJR radio in Seattle, Roy is in better shape than he was while making three All-Star teams and he’s back in the gym playing hoops.
It would be an incredible story if Roy was able to return to the NBA hardwood after seemingly having his career cut shockingly short because of injury. Brandon Roy profile
