Legler says vote Roy

The Brandon Roy for All-Star momentum has gradually started to increase, which tends to happen when you're the leader of a team that has won 16 of their last 17 games. Today ESPN's Tim Legler lists B.Roy (or the "Roy-bot" as I and other like to call him) as one of the five Western Conference guards who should be representing their teams in New Orleans.
4. Brandon Roy, Portland Trail Blazers -- The reigning Rookie of the Year has blown up. It's important to note that the top 4 scorers on the Blazers are all 24 and under. To have that kind of chemistry, with young guys usually trying to get their own numbers for contracts, is a tribute to how well Roy handles the team.

He handles the ball as well as any guard in the league. He's all about that team playing well, the perfect guy to lead these young guys. If he has to get 30 points for his team to win, he will, or if he needs to be a playmaker and get 10 assists, he can do that too. Very good in fourth-quarter situations.

I still think it's going to be incredibly hard for Roy to make the squad in a Western Conference stacked with talented guards, but there's literally no argument you can make against his candidacy. He does everything.

Make sure to do your part and vote for Brandon Roy. Tell your friends.
