1984 – Happy 29th birthday to free agent shooting guard Brandon Roy who is on the verge of retiring after spending just six seasons in the league. The three-time All-Star returned after a one-season absence to play for the team that originally drafted him, the Minnesota Timberwolves, in 2012-13. Roy was originally on pace to be one of the better offensive players in NBA history, but his career was unfortunately cut short by multiple knee injuries.
