He is making a lot of money for playing 82 games in 3 years.

A guy's getting paid 9 million dollars this year because he can walk without a limp.

Oden will leave Portland after this year, and of course that will be when he becomes healthy and productive.

I expect that not extending Oden when they had the chance will be the biggest mistake the Blazers made since they drafted him over Durant.

Snakebit franchise heading in the wrong direction.

Oden will never be productive -- ever. Body just isn't built for it, and eventually teams will figure that out. In five years, he's not in the league.

Never mind

So sad that in 2007 I wanted to cry when Oden's injury was announced and now when it is announced I kind of chuckle to myself. Sucks being a Blazer fan on this day. Worst day as a Blazer fan since Game 7 2000.
