B. Roy in the house

A few of us were waiting for football interviews to start today when a familiar face strolled through Hec Ed — Brandon Roy. He had Spencer Hawes and Quincy Pondexter in tow, saying he was going to help show them where the tutors are.
Roy and Hawes played last week for Team Seattle in the Entertainer’s Basketball Classic at Rucker Park in New York. Nate Robinson and Jamal Crawford, Seattle natives who play for the Knicks, formed the team, which lost in the title game to Team New York. Roy joked that there was a little home cooking from the refs involved. “We’ll get them next year,” he said.
He said the tournament was as much about entertainment as basketball, saying the rules were pretty relaxed. “It’s like a Hip Hop tournament,” he said. “You can carry the ball and stuff like that.”
Roy said he’s home for one more week before leaving for Portland next week to officially begin NBA life. “I’m starting to get excited about it,” he said.
Roy said Tre Simmons would have played for Team Seattle at Rucker but Simmons had just left for his Spain, where he will begin playing soon.
Another member of Team Seattle was former Husky Jamaal Williams, who was called in at the last minute to help out. Roy said Williams will attend training camp with the Clippers with the plan of likely playing for the Clippers’ entry in the NBADL this year. That team will play in Southern California.
