This is the same one that T-Mac had a few yrs ago and was never the same, am I correct?

Marc Stein of ESPN.com reported in December 2011 that Oden had agreed to renegotiate his $8.8 million qualifying offer down to $1.5 million after the Blazers announced that Oden had suffered a "setback" in his rehabilitation. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but has made mention of resigning with the blazers organization to "make things right".

Oden should just retire from the NBA and file for his SSI check already.

Uhhh you have to be kidding? I mean this is one of the saddest things ever. I truly feel bad for the Blazers franchise just to think how unreal it is they lost a guy like Roy and to boot a guy like Oden who may of easily been a top 5 C in the league.

i don't feel too awful for athletes who waste all their money, lose a championship or three, get hurt for a season or something...basically, i'll feel bad for them if something happens that i'd feel bad for just about any average person.

but this sucks. i don't how much money he's made, that he's in the nba, or anything...i feel really bad for him. it's got to be incredibly hard for him to deal with mentally.

on the one hand, yeah it sucks for him

on the other hand, he has made 22 million dollars for playing in 86 games. That's a little under 250 grand for 30 minutes of work per game. Hard to feel sorry for someone who gets that.

Kevin Pritchard, the GM who took Oden No. 1 over Kevin Durant, insists that MRIs taken on both of Oden's knees pre-draft were "pristine"

Fresno
02-20-2012, 08:53 PM
Hes doing all these surgeries to get back out on the court.

Everybody saying "hes done" forget thats he just turned 24 years old.

His comeback will be an amazing story and I cant help but cheer for him.

Even with these injuries hanging over his head, I can guarantee you there will be a team out there willing to sign him this summer and stash him on their roster for when he returns.

This is the ultimate low risk, high reward signing for any team.

If Oden comes back healthy hopefully by January or February in 2013, he could be the perfect missing piece for a team like the Heat at the Center position.

Everybody talking about Sam Bowie forgets he came back from his injuries and had several "healthy" seasons. Everybody gets a chance to bounce back from these injuries and Oden wont be any different.

justinnum1

The good think is the heat can grab him for the min next year:) low risk

I still don't understand how Oden hurt himself on this play

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dcXWZuTWDM

I mean he basically just jumped into air. NOBODY even made contact with him. How do u fracture your kneel by jumping into nothing?

Can someone explain?

That's only because the wrong people always get that rich. If i ever get that rich, i'll be happy for life. These people that get rich don't know how to use it and they don't value it. If i ever get that rich, i'll be happiest person in the world.

I don't understand. He didn't play a game after the same surgery before and now again he's having the same one? How is it possible? What did he do after the last surgery that was detrimental to his Knee?

A limited Oden on his last year (2009-10):

11.1 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.3 BPG only in 24 MINUTES. That was with 60% from the field and 77% from FT line (Great FT% for a center).

Sucks when you think of what a healthy Oden could have been. The next great big is probably done.

Lim
02-20-2012, 10:29 PM
good thing is he is still young. if the doctors clear him to play i am sure he will give it one more shot

Its really a sad story. He would be a top 3 center if not for the injuries. Blazers probably would have a championship by now. Greg is.... Was... Could have been that big of a difference for them.

He did nothing wrong, its just that the surgery wasn't a success.

You're forgetting when the Blazers checked out his knee after the lockout ended they noticed his knee wasn't as healed as much as they thought.

Doctors initially were going to remove debris but they decided that Oden needed to have the surgery done over again to get it right.

He should go to the Suns. They seem to have a pretty good track record so for. I am beginning to suspect there is some illegal stuff going on down there.

I remember when it happened during his rookie year, then pretty much every year since...

Here's hoping he make a miraculous recovery and one day reaches his potential. Crazier things have happened so why not?

02-21-2012, 01:16 AM
Well, this isn't much of a shocker for Blazer fans. I just feel bad for Oden now, he could have been great but so many injuries have happened. At this point he needs to focus on being able to walk, and not on a basketball career in my opinion.

I hate thinking about what the Blazers could have been, I really do.

Sucks for him and the Blazers. Sam Bowie v2.0

Sam Bowie at least got to play in his career. This living jinx didn't. It's safe to say that Oden has surpassed Bowie as the biggest #1 lottery pick bust in NBA history. :facepalm:

akagiredsuns
02-21-2012, 01:33 AM
If Portland had gotten Durant, none of this would have happened. For a short time, Durant & Roy would have been an epic 1-2 punch, but POR had to pick Oden, who we knew in college could be a potential injury problem. What a difference those two careers became. This is the biggest miss ever by any team in a draft, even worse than DET taking Milicic over Melo, Wade, etc. and Bowie being picked over Jordan.

I cant even bring myself to making jokes about his knees.

Just a damn shame.

Beltrans Mole

It's crazy to think about the decisions front offices need to make when drafting these guys. Look at Durant's career compared to Oden's...hell, look at Rose vs. Beasley...I'm sure Chicago is happy as hell, and I'm sure the Blazers are kicking themselves. I guess that's why it's not an exact science.

Terrible story. Oden had the potential to be one of the next great bigs in this league. Yes, KD is tearing up the league, but you simply do not pass on bigs as talented as Oden was coming out of school. We're seeing the same thing with the progression of Cousins and Monroe as very talented bigs paying off big time

He still has more money earned than 99% of the US. I'm not worried about him. Tough break, but the kid should count his blessings.

If he's was injury prone in HS and College, why did Portland draft him? I remember this draft class, it was a highly anticipated draft.....Kevin Durant or Greg Oden? Damn somebody ****ed up. :pity:

Sucks for him and the Blazers. Sam Bowie v2.0

Can he be actually worse than Sam Bowie? I think Bowie had more playing games with the Blazers than Oden?

I believe he has played 82 games in 5 seasons which is roughly 16.4 games a season on average. I feel bad for the Blazers and they could have had Kevin Durant.

Brandon Roy also had a sad ending to his career. Some can argue that he was on par with wade when he was on the top of his game. He was that good then. Oden never really has shown signs of being a great big man, but I am sure he would have been a good defender and solid on the boards.

mRc08
02-21-2012, 04:39 PM
I can still see teams throwing him the vet min this offseason. Who wouldn't want this guy on the end of their bench making vet min while waiting for him to hopefully recover? seems like a minimal risk with a decent reward if he can ever play again.

If this guy was on the bulls roster next year instead of scal (i love scal but he brings very little but chemistry), he could sit until healthy. if he never plays, big deal, scal never plays unless injury or blowouts.

utl768
02-21-2012, 04:43 PM
someone will always take a chance on him because he is a center

kinda like the left handed reliever in baseball who gets 23000 chances
