We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
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.
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.

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."
http://www.nba.com/sonics/news/microfracture.html Here's a list of players who have had the micro-fracture surgery.
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.
