you know, they keep hyping his academic strengths, but this retard still only got a 1370 out of 2400 on the new SAT. Now, everybody knows the deficiencies of the SAT, but still, a 1370 on a basic skills test is beyond awful. That's about a 450 on each section, which is absolutely horrendous, I don't care who you are.

When did Greg Oden retire from the NBA? He looks like he played against Bill Russell.

Just wondering... where did you get those #s?

Edit: just did a quick search and found it at gregoden.com

no jealousy here. I'd rather be who I am right now rather than a guy who's A) parents felt really bad for him so that they kept him out of school for 10 years so he could dominate basketball posing as an 18 year old kid...B) a guy who's body is aging too quickly and looks like he's 30 years older than he really is.

his nickname should be Greg "The Narc" Oden. Or better yet, hopefully as a pro he'll choose the number 21 and we can call him "21 Jump Street".

Yes, a 900 is pretty bad, especially for a guy like Greg Oden who has his academic strengths praised at nearly every opportunity and supposedly takes academics so seriously.

And plus, Kobe did not do well. He did merely average. 1080 on the old SAT is not particularly great.

David Robinson, on the other hand, had a very competitive score. 1320

Don't get me wrong, he is extremely built for his age, but he can get much bigger without harming his quickness much.

I know what you were trying to say, but he's 7ft 250 pounds, I don't think any part of that would give away his young status.

Isn't Oden actually like 22?

Maybe his body just develops faster than normal. Or at least parts of it. He'll probably be dead by 50. Sometimes people just develop too damn fast. My family develops really slow physically. I could pass for 14 and I'm damn near 17, my dad grew like 5 inches in his sr year of HS, and everyone in my family lives past 80.
