    Actually, most people on this board understood that Oden's decision was the correct one. it doesn't mean that OSU fans didn't *want* him back, but I remember hardly anyone claiming that his was a bad decision.

    This guy is going to go down as one of the greatest bust ever. He could barely stay on the floor during college. If it wasn't an injury it was foul trouble. Now he is out for his first NBA year.

    Yeah, good luck with that.

    He is 19 years old, if he sits out 1 year he starts his NBA career at 20. Thats a little soon to call the guy a bust.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Right, let the kid/freakishly old man play when he's healthy before labeling him a bust.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    How about if I just call him a bust now. I have seen Oden play and have seen him pile up these injuries. I read today that he has one leg longer than the other. That can't be good for a seven footer.

    I'm not saying it is set in stone, it is just my opinion. Bust.

    That's true, but there were several people arguing that the college/OSU experience was worth more than an NBA contract. People are entitled to that opinion, but it would have been a disaster for Oden if he had not entered the draft and suffered an injury like this one.

    One of our local paper's columnists who covers the NBA beat says that the surgery Oden is having can be career-changing... and not in a good way. I believe the sentence he used was "Ask the Phoenix Suns whether Amare Stoudamire is the same player he was before he had this surgery."

    Very true. He's got a tough road ahead.

    Anfernee Hardaway and Kerry Kittles were never the smae players.

    But there have been some successes with it... Chris Webber and Jason Kidd.

    Oh yeah, I can tell you right now that there's no way I would have traded those 25˘ drafts at Sloopy's for a $100 million NBA contract. That would have been lunacy.

    What exactly is your point? That I'm not allowed to have an opinion on the matter unless it lines up with yours?

    Why is it OK for everyone to opine that Oden is the next great center but it isn't OK for anyone to have the opposite feeling?

    I don't see any of these sarcastic Emperor post when someone predicts great things for Oden.

    Oden hasn't even played a game in the NBA yet and he is already the Tiger Woods of hyped returns.

    How does a core of OJ Mayo, Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Greg Oden sound for 2008-2009?
