Watch old PAtrick Ewing games in college or Shaq games in college. He isnt on that level and I think its a disservice to the great centers of the past to assumee he will just naturally get there.

Hibbert isnt really that good. And Oden couldnt even score at will on him.

Selective hearing?

He didnt say Oden alone wasnt Kareem or Russell. He said the matchup of the two Centers wasnt a classic battle of two great Centers because neither were close to being great or on thier level.

In short he basically said the matched up Hibbert and Oden didnt live up to the fantasy expectations. And it didnt.

Im really dissapointed with Ron Lewis today.
I have been talking him up all week and he goes 1-8 from the field. His shooting could have been the difference. I thought that Hibbert did a great job against Oden, if I was Oden I would take a leaf out of Tim Duncan's book and stay in school for another year.

Kareem? No. Oden isnt Kareem. Ewing? Ewing was a 13/7.5 player as a freshman and wasnt first team all american either. His team made it to and lost the title game. Hakeem was an 8/6 player and they lost with a lot of talent in the final 4 or elite 8. dont feel like checking for which. He played Moses Malone all summer and improved over his next couple years.

Oden is short of Kareems standard but right now neither Ewing or Hakeem blow him away as freshmen. Hes got a way to go but if people judged Hakeem and Ewing so harshly wanting them to be Kareem as freshmen people would have hated on them too. It doesnt take a 20/10 average or day in day out dominance at 18 to be a great bigman.

That's so not true. They would've been lucky to be a 5th seed without Oden.

Conley's a good young pg, but their defense does better when they can just allow Oden to protect the paint.

The refs have beens screwing Oden all tournament long, especially 2day his first 2 fouls were ticky tack calls, especially the "offensive" where all he did was lower his shoulder really without any force and the guy went flying.

Oden can be a special player in college and pros. He had a few hurdles to get over this season and he came through nicely. And he's had a very very very good tournament by any big man's standards, basically playing in 20 minute games with his BS foul trouble

I know they got the L but Hibbert impressed the **** out of me today. He hung with a clearly quicker and more athletic Oden and put it to him with hooks, turn around jumpers, put backs, a few dunks and even showing range with that shot right inside the arc. He even showed good team D and control after getting his 4th foul still being a factor while not flailing to block shots and risking the foul. He probably won't be special but I see him being better than the Dampiers of the world, with a chance to be even better if he works on his conditioning.

oden will be great. he's one of the quickest big men i have ever seen. and he's skilled enough to own the paint. also as far as i can see he's a great rebounder and shot blocker. the only problem with him is he doesn't know how to smile... with the face he has...the man needs to smile a whole lot everyday. he looks like lebron's dad for christs sake.

G-town couldn't handle Big Ten basketball. Apparently most Big East teams can't.
