Oden out for the season, again, with a NASTY knee injury. I saw a picture of it and it sickened me. Poor kid is never going to reach his potential. That's why if I were a team, I'd never draft a kid even suspected to be injury-prone. I'd rather have a less talented guy who can play for you for years than a stud who is always out. So sad.

And think about this eery line of Trailblazer big men who have had this injury problem: Bill Walton, Sam Bowie, Greg Oden.

And to think Portland could have had Kevin Durant. Sadly, the Blazers can't build around him or count on him anymore. His body is simply too brittle.
