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.

Sad. I like Greg Oden as a player on the court, and as a personality off it. Even though it's the Blazers, I just want to see him playing ball.

MDI, just a few parts posted from the article and a link to the rest, buddy. :)

He [Greg Oden] 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.


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

While I always thought Oden was slow, I never thought he was this fragile.

I always thought he would be a bust. He never impressed me in College. Hopefully he gets healthy and try to prove me wrong, but at this point he's irrelevant.

^ i never understood the hype but i understood the pick

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

weird stuff

mayb the heir apparent was never kobe or lebron maybe it is kevin durant

Damn, this guy is no Kwame Brown where he is a 100% bust, healthy or not... Oden don't even have a chance to prove his critics wrong...

not a bust, but he is very injury prone at this point of his career, not a bust but maybe a waste of a 1st pick

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)

I'm glad the Hawks got the #3 pick, and not the #1.


Although, Durant would've been nice.
