After an All-American career and a Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year award in his senior year, Roy was drafted sixth overall in the 2006 NBA Draft. As a rookie, he quickly made an impact being named T-Mobile NBA Rookie of the Year in a near-unanimous vote. As of February 16, 2009, Roy has hit 24 shots where he tied or won the game with 35 seconds or less.
At its core a 5-on-5 basketball simulation game, NBA 10: The Inside brings an expanded Conquest Mode with three original features this year.

In addition, two new quick action mini-games have been introduced – Open Lanes, a traditional 10 frame bowling game, and Cherry Pickin,’ a puzzle based mini-game with an NBA feel. NBA 10: The Inside also brings back all of the popular carnival-style games from years past. NBA 10: The Inside also features expanded play-by-play and audio commentary from Kenny Smith and Ian Eagle.
