Tony Wroten Admits Trouble Defending Retired Brandon Roy, Which Says Something

NBA.com's fantastic Scott Howard-Cooper talked to Tony Wroten, the University of Washington guard who figures to land in the high teens or 20s in the 2012 NBA Draft. Wroten talked about working out with UW/Seattle area legend Brandon Roy, who retired last December at age 27 due to knee trouble.

Six months after being forced into retirement by a knee injury, Roy, Wroten said, "dominates. I'm a good defender, I feel like, but, man, it's a little hard to stop him. He just gets to his spots. We're going to see. His knee looks great, though."

This says one of two things about these two dudes:

1. Tony Wroten is not a good defender.

2. Brandon Roy is still Brandon Roy.

I'm going with No. 2. Come back No. 7! The league needs you now more than ever.*

* There's nothing particularly particular about right now that requires B-Roy, other than the fact that we always need B-Roy.
