Brandon Roy: Andre Miller Was the Right Choice
"Even though Andre may not have been the first choice, it has come down to him being the right choice," Blazers star Brandon Roy said. "The way he has been playing for us, he has been our most important guy because of how consistent he has been."
Said Miller: "I guess it has worked out for everybody."
In truth, there was more pregame attention paid to who wasn’t in the game than the summer’s free agent competition. Toronto played without All-Star forward Chris Bosh, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, while the Blazers played without newly acquired center Marcus Camby. Both players have sprained ankles.
