09:29 PM ET 01.31 | The comeback attempt of Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy has taken another hit. The three-time All-Star has reportedly encountered another setback in his attempted return from chronic knee troubles. After undergoing surgery on his right knee in November, Roy said that the most recent setback has not taken all of his hope away from returning this season. Still, it's hard to envision Roy's return considering his initial comeback after sitting out last season lasted just the five games of this year. A year after the Portland Trail Blazers amnestied the talented guard, Roy signed a two-year contract with Minnesota this season in hopes of resurrecting his career, one that had only lasted five seasons before knee problems forced him into retirement.

It's hard to give up at such a young age.

Sometime the writing is on the wall; his knees are shot. Give it up dude and try something else in the basketball world. I know it's hard to give up your passion but all love affairs come to an end at some point.

Roy needs to accept the fact that he will NEVER play NBA basketball again. The Wolves were idiots to give him all that money knowing he has bad knees. Sad...

Wasn't there a Monty Python movie with a guy like this in it? The guy had all his limbs chopped off and he still wanted to fight. And just like it wasn't funny in the movie, it's not funny here. When a person's persistence flies in the face of facts that are clearly established to the contrary, it's fair to call that person an idiot. Apparently he loves wallowing in it.

Sad to see a career end at a young age. But he was done before he left Portland. I remember having this conversation with DJ who laughed off the assertation. Can't be right all the time.

I hope he does coach as Twins commented above. He's really an upstanding person and has a great mind for the game.

QUOTE(#11):

Wrong.

LOL, do you just lurk until you see your name? And what's wrong - that you didn't think Roy could 'still have an excellent career'? I can show you the quote, if you want...
