Does Greg Oden look older to you?
 
I saw him on an interview yesterday and he looked like he was in his mid 30's, almost like a mix between Antonio McDyess and Hakeem Olajuwon to me. Anyone else notice this?

he is. His parents have been keeping him in hiding for like 10 years, so he's actually closer to 30. His parents just wanted him to dominate high school b-ball

Of course he looks older. He looks to be middle aged. His body on the other hand, still looks like that of a young player. He looks like he can add a lot more bulk on his frame.

Don't get me wrong, he is extremely built for his age, but he can get much bigger without harming his quickness much.

Very similar to Lebron when he came out of high school. I think it has to do with their build, and ability to grow facial hair.

Greg Oden looks older than B.J. freakin' Armstrong. And that little chump has been retired for a few years. Go figure.

naw im not talking about build, I'm talking facially. No homo. Oden just looks older, I understand that he's smiling in that pic but no one has that many wrinkles in their face no matter how big their mouth is.

Oden looks over 40. his body could be aging too quickly.

BlockAHoe 07-13-2006 10:24 PM

It could be that he possibly has an abundance of testosterone. Kinda like Hakeem I think you can expect him to bald early.

Eto'o 07-13-2006 10:27 PM

Oden is one ugly sumbtich. :banana:

Thorpesaurous 07-13-2006 10:31 PM

Both he and Lebron are/were physically mature well beyond their age. And they both look it.

And Freddy Adu isn't a day under 38 years old.

A little extreme perhaps, but I do concur with the concept. Adu is a grown ass man. There is no doubt in my mind. What was the age they were trying to throw at us when he first came here? 14 or 15? Please.

BFRESH44 07-13-2006 10:37 PM

LOL yep. Gred Oden is not no damn 17 years old. That N' looks atleast 35....

Dick Biggly 07-13-2006 10:56 PM

he doesn't look old, he's just ugly.

NYKnicks914 07-13-2006 10:58 PM

This pic says it all

Wow. Oden looks WAY older than he is. Eto'o you stole the words out of my mouth he is one ugly sumbtich.
