Poor Greg Oden. Poor Trail Blazers. These two sides just can’t catch a break. As we are witnessing Kevin Durant soar into the NBA’s elite, we are still wondering when Oden will be able to play a full season, or half of one for that matter. I saw this picture on ESPN when the injury first happened, about how all of the Blazers top picks have turned out to be busts for them. The only two I remembered were Sam Bowie (hehe) and Bill Walton. So this is when I got to thinking. Wait, didn’t Bill Walton turn into a great player off the bench for several championship teams? Why can’t Oden do the same? It’s not like he’s going to be a franchise savior anymore. That time has come and gone. But why can’t he get a fresh start from someone in a couple years (Celtics) and become the enforcer off the bench off while playing about 20 minutes a game? I hope the best for Greg, even though he lost me my March Madness pool when his Ohio State Buckeyes fell to the ugly Noahs. So I hereby am proclaiming that, after these next two seasons, the Celtics bring in Oden for some instant offense to back up Perkins. Maybe keep the dynasty going? Let’s hope.
