    Yes, the same Greg Oden whose defensive/rebounding efficiency stats when healthy rival Dwight Howard's.

    And if you're really going to use PPG/RPG to judge, Camby's career average is 10.2ppg and 10.0rpg in 30.6mpg in contrast to Oden's 22.1mpg.

    Question:
    If he could be had for a "reasonable" contract, would you try and sign Greg "Olden" this Summer???

    He's an unresricted F/A isn't he?

    I think Arnie would have to give him a full check-up. If he ever got near 100%, a frontcourt of Oden, Monroe, Jerebko would be solid.

    Something around what used to be the MLE (assuming it disappears). If our training staff is really that good and his body is actually built for 60+ games, it's a win win. We have to find talent steals like this whenever possible.

    Bah. Oden's a bust so far. So far he's Yao with a quarter the talent and double the injuries.

    If you're gonna gamble, do it on a big.

    Let's get Yao and Oden both. Play one til his breaks, then go with the other one.

    That actually is a good plan. I'd rather have Yao and Oden than Maxiell and CV.

    We could really use an all-star center on our team like Yao! Maybe we could make some merchandise $ in China. Yao's probably profitable even if he doesn't play.

    "probably" He made the All-Star team this year. If Gores wants to help his wallet, he will over pay for Yao just to have him sit on the bench.

    adding Oden and Yao for little money would be a too smart thing for Joe to do; rather stick with CV and Maxiell!
