The sad thing is though, all the 'what if' questions we will no doubt be asking for years to come about what his real potential was if completely healthy.
Big Z, as solid a career as he had, was never likely to be a dominating force the magnitude of what Oden was supposed to be. If he does come back and have a really solid career, it might make you think he could have been something special if not for his health issues.
It's just sad, I feel bad for the guy. I can't help but worry something else will happen to him once he's back and playing eventually.
