Default Saturday night Greg Oden injured left knee, needs surgery, season likely over

I've tried to watch as many Blazer games as possible and while power dunks and big blocks aren't usual for Greg Oden, I'm wondering if anyone here thinks he still has this kind of athleticism.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_oXl...eature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8fv810QfY8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9yD3M-pLQk

He's now in better shape than he was in last year and he should just about be recovered from the microfracture surgery. So has he lost any athleticism?

At 1:06 and particularly 1:21 he seems explosive here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZuaIPOAlbk Also at 1:13 here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJEaTPuzVJw

In general he doesn't seem to have as many highlight plays as he did in college, but I suspect part of that is him conserving energy and being careful because of his injury history.

He obviously put on some weight during his time off, but i'm not sure if he can get that explosiveness back, like Stoudemire, unless he really works hard and sheds some weight

He's had serious knee injuries, it's tough to get back to how you were(explosiveness) especially with 7 fters. Plus the extra weight he put on.

I believe the drive at 1:21 is a travel.

He has been looking really explosive lately. Unfortunately, I can't find any of the clips from this season on YouTube anymore. Looks like they might have been taken down.

I think he just dislocated his knee.

Rose Garden is dead silent. I can barely breath right now.

Watching the game right now as we speak. He's being carried off the court in a stretcher right now, not good.

Seriously, I like G.O., but I hope he's OK. Dang, you could hear mice peeing on cotton, when G.O. Went down.
