Poll question: Oregon honors Brandon Roy, classy or lame?

Seeing is believing. Yup that’s Brandon Roy. And yeah, he’s receiving a standing ovation from the Oregon Ducks at McArthur Court. As strange as it seems, it’s true.
As part of a season-long goodbye to the Pac-10, Oregon invited paid tribute to honorary captains in a pre-game ceremony before its nine conference games. The Ducks, however, went the extra step. Not only did they recognize their players and coaches, they paid tribute to their opponents as well.
Watching the Ducks shower Roy with love and affection made me wonder if Husky fans would ever cheer for Luke Ridnour, the Washington native, former Sonic and former Duck, at a UW game?
But the bigger question is what do you think about tonight’s ceremony.

What do you think about Oregon’s pre-game ceremony, which honored former Husky great Brandon Roy?surveys

For the record, Roy was greeted with a loud ovation. There were a smattering of boos, but they were drowned out by the cheers.
And here’s a video of Roy during a pre-game press conference. Admittedly, he was a little surprised when Oregon invited him to the game.
