Thread: Greg Oden has another year ending surgery

    Greg Oden has another year ending surgery

    Dude is going for his 3rd microfracture surgery. At this point you just gotta feel sorry for the guy, I imagine the pain is lessened a bit by all the millions he made

    So... career over?

  • #3
    His was already out for the season. I imagine this latest surgery might start cutting into next season. He has played 82 games in the 5 years since he was drafted. In related news: POR is cursed.

    With the Sam Bowie and Bill Walton injuries, I guess that's fairly accurate. But they arguably should have gone with Durant over Oden.

    (Cue the "yeah, easy to say that now" replies...but many of us thought that at the time.)

    I remember an article on ESPN discussing the way Durant and Oden walked at the draft. Durant with a bounce in his step and Oden trudging like the dad in Friday. Of course Oden already had a nagging injury and he missed his entire rookie season. Anyone should have seen the writing on the wall. Portland isn't cursed. Portland is stupid. Oden is a worse pick than Bowie was.

    Doctors say he can still come back, but at this point who knows.

    I've got nothing against the guy. I think he could have been a 15 pt/13 rebound player that clogged the lane defensively with plenty of highlight reels. He still should have never been taken over Durant. All the talk of a "dominant" Center being required to win a title was bull$#@!. The NBA game has changed but everyone still wanted to believe in old theories.

    Bill Simmons wrote an article way back about seeing Oden and Durant at an awards show prior to starting their NBA careers. He said KD had a smooth gait and hop in his step as he walked. Oden looked like an old man limping down the aisle even before all the surgeries. I believe one of his legs is 1-2 inches shorter than the other.

    i read a few synopses of an article from around his draft time that talked about how labored oden's stride was simply walking while KD looked had a stroll to him.

    I honestly had no idea he was still in the NBA.

    I don't feel sorry for Portland at all for picking this dude, who had a huge history of knee problems starting in high school. And the fact that I'm betting his real birth certificate has to say he is at least 45 or so.

    he was so overrated @ Ohio State. Portland has had 2 Franchise players in history - Bill Walton briefly and our home brotha Clyde Drexler. The 1999 Blazers were really really good and would have won the title in most years had it not been for an incredible SA team.

    lets not forget about brandon roy retiring due to bad knees.



    god damn we should be lucky they didnt take durant. aldridge and durant..would be awesome, with durant not playing with turd russel westbrook.

  • #15
    yes, but then durant would probably have knee issues if he played for Portland.

    I'm still convinced Oden has some sort of rare accelerated aging disease. The guy looked 30 when he was 15, 40 when he was 20, etc. And the knees and hobbled walk are just further evidence.

    Seriously, this dude was a college freshman:



    at the same time as this dude:

    Indeed.

    They also happen to be second in the Northwest and just spanked the Spurs by 40.

    To understand the word "cursed" in the NBA, may I direct you to the Wizards and Raptors.

    Dude if by cursed they made a monumentally stupid decision that at the time was easily avoidable by anyone with a lick of sense then yes, cursed. I'm not bagging on you b/c I think you are one of the best posters on this board, but Oden's upside was somewhere between Deke and Ewing if he stayed healthy, which, as was pointed out, was always a big if.

    Durant's floor was 6 time all star and his ceiling was top 10 player of all time. It was a stupid pick then and it's monumentally stupid now. What's funny is they made the exact same $#@!ing mistake 25 years earlier, passing on probably the GOAT, when everyone with sense at that time knew they were screwing up before hand (Bob Knight- draft Jordan and play him at center then, if you need a center). No institutional memory I guess.

    Yeah, but I think that deal had already been worked out and those franchises drafted the respective players for each other and they just had to wait on announcing the trade. At least that's the way I remember it- it wasn't really a trade of a guy that either team had any intention of keeping, they knew the score ahead of time nad each got the guy they wanted.

    Sounds like they deserve the curse:

    Blazers interim GM Chad Buchanan, director of college scouting when Oden was drafted, told Portland reporters last month: "Looking back on it, I would still draft Greg. (With) hindsight, it's easy to make an assumption (now). ... You can't predict the injuries that would come. Going back on it, I wouldn't have changed anything in drafting Greg."

    Anyone saying they shouldn't have drafted Oxen is either just using hindsight or doesn't understand basketball. Given the choice between a wing genetically designed to score at will and a 45 year old, injury prone center, you always chose the big man. To say otherwise just reveals your ignorance about the NBA game and the value of centers in street clothes.
