How many years does it take to become a man? At 22, Alexander the Great had crushed the Illyrians, razed Thebes, and kicked Darius and his immense Persian Empire in the nether regions.
At 23 tender years, René Descartes shocked the world of philosophy with his revolutionary thoughts. And when Napoleon possessed only 24 annums, he overthrew the enemies of the French Republic!
But Brandon Roy is now a venerable 26. And he claims to have voyaged over the hill!
So it is written, so it shall be. Roy is an hombre viejo, gray of beard and creaky of limb. And this opens the minutes of playing time for me? Then with the vast capacities of youthfulness that being a year younger than Roy endow me with, I will show fans fine play...and even finer chalupa shots!
