(Greg Oden’s knees are also made of cardboard) Image via Yardbarker Ugh. Of all the athletes to be chronically injured, it had to be the tall funny guy? Peyton Manning can’t even get a hint of tendonitis, but Greg Oden can’t even get on the court. Combine this with Brandon Roy’s knee problems and what looked like at one-time to be a blooming dynasty could result in….nothing.
Portland taking Sam Bowie instead of Michael Jordan will be the biggest NBA Draft blunder for the rest of eternity. Or will it? Kevin Durant has now scored 25 or more points in 25 consecutive games. At the age of 22, Durant is already one of the top three players in the league. Outside of LeBron James there isn’t a human being on the planet with more talent.

Camila, you are very attractive but I probably won’t be writing about you anymore. Originally I was going to write at length about Brett Favre, but I’ve now decided to let my thoughts simmer on the back burner for another few days. In case you missed it, Norv Turner just received a three year [...]

Dear Dwight: you can’t help your team win if you’re not on the floor. Ask Tracy McGrady and Kevin Garnett. Actually, sometimes you can’t help your team even when you are on the floor. Just [...]
Greg Oden shows a bunch of grade schoolers that, like his peers LeBron James and Dwight Howard, he also can make a full-court heave. Fantastic. Now let’s see Greg go a whole season without some part of his body failing catastrophically. That would be impressive.
