He's played exactly one season worth of games in five years. I wonder if they'll cut ties this offseason.

He's already been released and said he plans to take next season off to rehab.

Well he always did look like an older Lebron, ravaged by alcoholism. Even now that Lebron has gotten baldur.

As corny and long-winded as that article was, it was actually quite interesting.

So he was super embarassed everyone found out he has huge junk? Black people problems.

No more getting hammered, bummer? If I ever see him, Vallhala at him and offer a Shirley Temple or a hot chocolate.

He'd be dead if he had played in a larger city with more evil temptations than Portland.

He's lucky meth and heroin are generally for the lower classes, because Portland DOES have a lot of that.

Let me guess: he used to get sauced on Old Fashioneds and Harvey Wallbangers.

/He's old!

A stark look at the fury that must be inside him, especially after his busted cap. Hopefully he can overcome his demons and he'll have a banner year.

Even though a lot of what happened is his own fault and he got a lot of money out of it, I can't help but feel bad for the guy. I'm sure some team will take a chance on him and I hope it works out.

Well I guess he would like to Frigget his problems before he wanders back into the frey.

his genitalia are exactly as big as you would think they would be

Um...what? I don't generally make assumptions regarding the size of people's junk. Even large African-American athletes. I found this a very odd statement.

Just another mewling quim...

Man I remmebr seeing Greg Oden with the Ohio State Buckeyes when they came to play Penn State. I met him with my friends after the game and thought he was the next big thing. It's a shame he is considered a huge bust.

Stop fighting it

You're gay

FTFM. I always felt sorry for him not being able to reach his potential because of all the injuries. Yeah, he's rich, so I don't feel THAT sorry. But it must suck not being able to do the thing you love AND have everyone hating on you. I doubt he'll ever be a superstar, but maybe he can come back and have some sort of journeyman career. I mean, if Kwame M-F-ing Brown can have a nice career, why not Greg Oden?

I always felt like the fact that one of his legs (ahem) is several inches shorter than the other one just doomed him from the start. That would effect how all of the stress that comes from being a massive man running up and down the court everyday would be handled by his joints.

Some people just weren't made to handle the rigors of professional sports, no matter how athletic and hard working they may be.

Ok, sure. Being gay means you always have preconceived notions regarding the size of people's genitalia.
