On Brandon Roy being the best player Batum every played with: NB: [Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist] asked me, he said, how long you been in the NBA? I said this is my 9th year. He said, who the best player you ever play with in the league? Brandon Roy. ZL: No brainer for you. Right away. NB: Right away… He was like, no LaMarcus? No Dame? No… no. Those guys really, really, really good. I played 2 years… 3 years with Brandon Roy. Yeah. Best player I played with in the NBA.
B/R: Will Seattle ever get another franchise? If so, should the team be called the Sonics? NR: I hope it has a franchise again. It should be called the Sonics, for sure. Nothing should change. Keep the same colors—just swag the jerseys out. S–t, the main reason Seattle should have a team is because of the ballers it produced. Kevin Durant right now would tell you [that] if he had the chance to go to the Sonics or stay in OKC, he for sure would be in Seattle, and he wouldn’t want to leave ever. Myself, Isaiah Thomas—he has f–king offense—Jamal Crawford, we could build a Seattle team that would compete in the NBA, for sure. Brandon Roy, Marvin Williams, give us Zach LaVine, Avery Bradley, Aaron Brooks, Spencer Hawes, Jon Brockman, Rodney Stuckey…we’re taking all Seattle guys.
Storyline: Seattle Team?
Garfield’s nationally ranked boys basketball team defeated Ballard by 35, an impressive number in victory, but it also “lost” a number Friday: The No. 4, which former Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Brandon Roy wore when he played as a Bulldog from 1998-2002. Garfield High retired the number during the program’s senior night, and Roy and his family were in attendance to see his number enshrined high into the rafters above Garfield’s gym. The ceremony took place during halftime of the Garfield-Ballard game.
