Oden-less Blazers Will Be Better

NBA Trailblazers Greg Oden

No not this season. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Brandon Roy is good and LaMarcus Aldridge is talented, but these guys won't be carrying the Blazers into the playoffs come post-season. While Greg Oden sits on the sidelines in a fancy suit and jewelry all year, and rehabs and rehabs and rehabs, the Blazers will be checked off as a "W" for most NBA team's schedules. Analysts will give them praise and credit when they scrap out an impressive win here or there, and will always come back to mention one thing. The missing big man, #1 Draft Pick, Greg Oden, and how great he and the team will be, later.

Chicago Sports Review makes a good point about Oden's absence though. The fact the Blazers won't be contenders this year could basically turn this team into an NBA Dynasty for the future. The Blazers may get back to back #1 picks and possibly take a very talented point guard to play alongside Oden, Roy and Aldridge, which would make this team one of the best in years to come.

Oden has a blog over at, with his last entry on 9/21/07 discussing how he's recovering, and how he's livin'. And yes, he even includes video footage of his healing knee.
