Be a pretty cool gym teacher to have thats for sure


"I would love to play [in 2012-13], but I’m not going to rush anything," he said Thursday. "I need to take a year off. What I told [agent] Mike [Conley] was ‘Look, I want to get back with a team. I want to play. If there’s a chance that later on in the [NBA] year, if I feel good or if I’m healthy enough to play, I would love to play this year.’ That’s the conversation we had. I think some people kinda blew that up and took his words and kinda changed them around. I know I need to get healthy first before I do anything."
...
"It’s not like teams are out there telling people they want me, because they’re not right now," Oden explained. "And I’m not out there telling people I want to go to a certain team. I want to go to a place where I can get healthy and with somebody who can believe in me and my skills — somewhere it could be a good fit for the both of us."
...
"I actually want to be a [high school or middle school] gym teacher," he said. "I feel like they have the best job ever. You think about it, they get their weekends off and they get to wear sweats every day to work." Oden also acknowledged the possibility that his multiple knee surgeries could end his NBA career: "If basketball doesn't work out, you gotta keep it moving."

Oden, 24, was the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA Draft and has not appeared in an NBA game since Dec. 5, 2009.

I'm not too sure being a gym teacher w/ 16 yr. -18 yr. old girls is a smart decision for somebody like him.

Damn, ninjaed! :laugh:

If Greg Oden Needed money, getting a job as a teacher sure as hell isn't the way to do it.

It would be so cool if Greg Oden was my gym teacher. When I do a good job at an activity, it would be so cool if he gave me a congratulatory butt slap :)

maybe not dude, if his knees are shot he may have trouble walking let alone playing competitive basketball anywhere, He also is only a high school graduate who probably did **** all in high school and just got passed by teachers so he may not be the smartest guy in the world. So your talking about a giant man with terrible knees and limited education...and it 2-3 years no one will care that he once played for the blazers.
