    Greg Oden to miss the rest of the season due to injury

    Just announced on ESPN. Waiting for an article to be posted.

    This guy is the biggest bust in recent draft history. Kevin Durant has been looking good.

    Not surprising...


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Who would have thought that drafting a guy that looked like he was 50 would get injured as often as a 50-year-old?

    Oden down to injury? Shocker. Agree with you 100%. Huge bust when you look at who they could have taken with that pick.

    I think Oden is really Robert Parrish trying to relive his glory days

    Agreed, by all accounts he is one of the nicer guys in the NBA.

    At least from some pictures I've seen, he could always have a career in porn to fall back on.

    Re: Greg Oden to miss the rest of the season due to injury

    I do feel bad for him in some ways. He has never gotten to play substantial minutes in the NBA. However, he is a multi-millionaire so life isn't terrible.

    Re: Greg Oden to miss the rest of the season due to injury

    Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden out for season because of knee injury - ESPN

    He's already been out for nearly a full calendar year, after missing almost that entire rookie season. He's only played 82 games over the course of the last two seasons.

    Yeah, he's always seemed like a really decent guy who is just too big for his ligaments.

    Isn't he still getting a larger paycheck than what most people earn?

    Yeah, but to know your legacy is going to be that guy the Blazers took instead of Durant is rough.

    Fair to call him a bust now, right?
