There is pain, Oden says, and not just any pain, but biting pain. He said it so many times in interviews that he started saying it more demonstratively, in hopes that his louder tone would finally get someone to believe him.
"I don't know how else to put it: There's a difference between sore and painful, and this is painful," Oden said.
He says if the team pushes him to play, he will do it. He just doesn't know how effective he would be. He can't run as fast, he can't jump as high and he is not as agile.
"Look, I'm tired of sitting; I want to get out there," Oden said. "But damn, if I did go out there and play, it may be worse having me out there. They'd be playing four-on-five most of the time."
On Saturday, 23 days after he banged knees with Maggette, Oden offered no foreseeable return date. He practiced hook shots off to the side during the team's shootaround, but grimaced and complained when the 175-pound Jensen offered defensive resistance from behind.
Greg Oden done for the year?

when was greg oden ever "agile"? He was always a slow, bad ball handler who could only make points off of dunks or open 5 ft shots

so does this mean KD is the next MJ
history would say so
chicago bulls team with history but not a big winning history they get MJ struggle tiny bit at first then gradually win more and more and then finally boom they win it all
seattle/OKC has a history but not a championship history they get KD struggle and the future is yet to be determined
and not to mention jeff greens game is eerily similar to scottie pippens
mayb the heir apparent was never kobe or lebron maybe it is kevin durant

he was "agile" at OSU... I thought he was fragile. i guess in comparison to Hibbert at GT, anyone is agile. i never saw half the agility that i saw in Shaq(im talking about lakers Shaq, not even LSU)
You didn't watch him at Ohio State, did you?

Although, Durant would've been nice.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there
