Has anyone ever seen Greg Oden and Robert Parish together?

Season-ending injuries are what's expected when you draft a guy who plays a year at Ohio State after finishing a long NBA career.

Greg Oden said he has no plans to retire, bad move

haha I almost feel bad for Oden at this point. He's actually a good player when healthy. Very dominant and knows how to use his body. Too bad he's basically done for his career. Still, he's made a lot of money for someone who hasn't played much.

Why?

He's not going to get picked up, so what's the difference?

He has the advantage of only being 24 but this was what his third microfacture surgery, maybe he can get back when he's 26 or 27 but if not forget it. Basketball courts aren't kind to NBA players backs or knees.

Greg Oden makes Sam Bowie and Bill Walton look like A.C. Green with regard to durability.

Man, Portland has had it rough drafting centers early in the 1st round.

Look at the injury history of Walton, Bowie and now Oden.

Well, at least LaRue Martin stayed healthy.

Unbelievable.

They should stop drafting centers in the 1st round

So my question is when is the Blazers going to cut him? What are they holding on to him for? He is never going to be able to play
