But the Q.O. was on the table, so the Blazers pulled it and countered with less money? In which case why sign him at all?

Yeah that part I didn't understand. If there's a pretty good chance he's not playing, why sign him for this season?

It probably means that they are holding onto the possibility that he will recover and then contribute in some way, at some point, perhaps in a galaxy far far away.

Greg Oden just needs to retire as well. It sucks that he'll be remembered as another Sam Bowie.

He will play for about 15 years, and win 14 titles, 12 MVP's and put up stats that relative to his era are so enormously dominant that the league will attempt to alter the rules to help create more parity in the NBA, but it won't be possible. A player so utterly dominant that the game will forever be changed.

I wonder if they can combine Oden and Roy's knees into a pair of super knees.

Oden just needs to get the fuk outta the league. Whatta fukkin' joke he is. Plus, is he the OLDEST looking 20-something year old you've ever seen? The man looks like he's in his mid-40's! It's really too bad Portland first picked Sam Bowie over Jordan, and Oden over Durant. Christ.

Re: Trail Blazers' Greg Oden suffers another setback, less likely to play this season

I have been laughing at the idea of the of resighning him all offseason but I have never viewed him as a bad GM dection and its not a bust i.e Kwame Brown. That only in theroy but in pratice he is a bust. Although its nobodys fault its still underachievment but only due to bad luck

Biggest bust in history. It's an insult to compare Bowie or Kwame to him. Those guys at least had serviceable careers.

You should read the article. He "had debris removed" from the knee that hasn't given him any problem since microfracture surgery. It was a simple orthroscopic surgery, and probably didn't set him back much at all, although I still really doubt he'll play this season. And don't count him out, yet. Bowie came back and had a semi-productive career. Maybe I'm just too much of a fan, but I can easily see Oden signing with another team this off season and averaging 12/10/2 for the rest of a productive, healthy career.

Bust, absolutely, considering the time he's missed and how people thought he could really impact the offensive side of the floor. However, when he plays, he's 100 times the player Kwame Brown is.
