Surprisingly, no words were spoken after I watched Brandon Roy rip out the heart of Dallas back in Game 4 of the Trail Blazers first round series with the Mavericks in 2011.
I shook my head, I think punched a pillow and went to bed. It was a soul crushing performance that almost severely altered the course of history for the Dallas Mavericks (had Dallas dropped the next two games, which was a very real possibility, the Dirk-era Mavericks would have most likely been torn to shreds.)
Thankfully, that Game 4 is just a minor footnote in the Mavericks championship run. And now the hero (or villain) in that game could very well end up in Dallas next year.
Brandon Roy is coming back and the Mavericks are interested
