Back in 2006, Brandon Roy entered the NBA as a hyped commodity. His explosive play earned him the Rookie of the Year award, followed by a few trips to the All-Star game. He might not have been the best player in the league, but he seemed poised to have a long, successful career full of accolades. Unfortunately, Roy suffered major injuries to both of his knees, and the explosive speed and leaping ability that made him such a success were gone, cutting his career far too short. What does this have to do with Kid Cudi? If we’re going to use Roy’s career as an analogy for Scott Mescudi’s, the musician’s “knees” were his decision to become a rock singer.
