He was a force in college, shame injuries found him early. There are rumors that Boston wants to try and sign him but I wouldn't risk it because he might get injured again(no offense, lol).

Centers are a premium these days. Just how the market works. When he was healthy, he was good plus he is only 23 yrs old unlike Yao(30yrs),so that is what the Blazers were looking at when they made the offer. I think Oden will be one of the best defensive centers in the league if he stays healthy.
