I think he will spend 3 yr in college.

When he becomes a pro he wants to an instant All Star.

He seems like a very smart young man who wants to learn

Dude. It doesn't work like that.

The NCAA doesn't come up and ask you old you are. There is a thing called a birth certificate........

He is more in the Mold of Russell, Mutombo, and Mourning than Parrish.

I think Oden is going to be just fine at OSU for his only year there. Depending on how far he can bring them will help him make his decision.

Although I say he'll only be there 1 year, I wouldn't be surprised to see him stay for 2 if OSU, say, loses in the opening round game as a high seed.

FRom what I saw of him, he has a lot of potential. He's gonna be like a dwight howard his first few years in the league. But I think he has more potential then Howard.

Default Re: How good will Oden be?

no doubt that oden is an athlete...but he definatley will not be the next big thing he isn't really what the NBA is looking for right now they are looking for big men with the ability to face up and stick the three i.e. Kevin Durant. Oden is a traditional back to the basket center those skills just don't measure up in the NBA there are so many great athletes with great leaping ability...it will be a block party
