    Re: GREG ODEN

    Oden was given a 1 year deal by the Blazers as a Restricted Free Agent.  He is currently in another country (escapes me at the moment) getting a procedure on his knee.  He will be a UFA at the end of the year, and able to sign with anyone.  He will probably stay in POR for two reasons:
    1.  He has something to prove
    2.  POR has been great to him, paying him to NOT play for a few years.

    Hopefully, Jeff Green will learn from this, and re-sign with us next year!!

    Nah, fans in Portland have had too much of Greg Oden. Its really sad. He is still just a kid, but he's got really bad wheel. He really does need to step away from Basketball for a few years and give his legs time time to heal. 

    A few years from now he's still young enough to play a few years of good NBA basketball in the NBA.

    Yeah, but we didn't pay Jeff Green for doing nothing this year--so he doesn't owe us anything like Oden does the Blazers.

    Oden is just Oden, Walton at least had a career, winning titles in College and the NBA. The Blazers seemed to play worse when Oden was on the floor. For the me the real sad part in Blazer recent history is the injury and retirement of Brandon Roy. He really was a special player.

    Oden hasn't shown anything yet in his brief career. He's not Bill Walton, he's not even Sam Bowie.

    Can see him staying in Portland but loyalty is a strange thing in sports. Personally I think the guy is always going to be picking up leg injuries. There's only so many surgeries he can endure to ensure that he has something resembling a pro career.

    I could be wrong, but I believed we paid for his surgery, and I believe he ASKED to be let out of his deal, and we accomodated.

    Falk thought they were making a mistake but agreed to it ...

    /> Boston is still in the mix.

    "It's a place he's going to give very strong consideration regardless of his status," said Falk, Green's agent, on Friday.

    The Celtics were proactive in helping Green find the source of his problems after his physical with the team in early December revealed a problem. Boston provided a number of specialists for Green, who recommended he undergo surgery.

    "I thought they handled it really first class," Falk said. "They helped us with the doctors. They were terrific. He's going to go back to Boston and rehab. He was very appreciative. It's not like he'd been there for a while."

    But Boston nonetheless got off the hook for the $9 million by rescinding the offer.

    "I tried to talk them out of it, for their own benefit," Falk said. "But they had reasons. It was like a Christmas present. If you have the choice of being a restricted free agent or an unrestricted free agent, I don't think too many people would say I'd like to be restricted."

    The Wizards, according to sources, have long coveted Green, who played locally at Georgetown and who would provide some desperately needed maturity and young experience next season for one of the league's most callow teams. Assuming the Wizards use their amnesty provision next summer to free themselves from the final season of Rashard Lewis's contract -- $22.69 million -- they'd be in prime position to give Green a big payday, assuming everything checks out post-operation. And if the Nets, say, lose out in the Dwight Howard-Deron Williams sweepstakes, they'll have a lot of flexibility, too.

    Only referring  to  the fact Oden's a Blazer with a history of injuries. 
    Where you been keeping yourself Worthy.  Somebody here posted a thread  a few weeks back asking what happened to you.  Never seen so many people on a Celtic board concerned about a Laker fan LOL
