The Oregonian: 
In light of the Greg Oden news, I've opened the chat waaaaay early. And I'm leaving reader comments open. It'll be monitored, but don't expect a ton of comments from me until we're closer to game time.

Meantime, and for the record, I like Greg Oden. I'm sorry all this has happened to him.

Here's a link to Freeman's post on Oden's situation. Joel Odom is at the practice facility and we expect to have video from a press conference there.http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index.ssf/2012/02/trail_blazers_center_greg_oden_has_microfracture_s.html

its sad about oden, but at this point he is getting as healthy as he can on the blazers dollar and time, its BEEN time for us to cut the cord. it sucks, but this isnt a charity business. the guy is of no use to us anymore. we should have let him sign for 9 mil with the heat.

if the guard play doesnt pick up soon, and stay consistent, there needs to be some drastic movements. everyone is expendable, except lamarcus and batum. everyone else should be on the block. it might be time to rebuild.

so for real though, when are we going to say enough is enough with the big guy? it is very sad, and sucks, but man....i feel like we have drug this out way too long

The Oregonian: 
I don't have the official answer for you. I will say, personally, that I'm sure if he's released, he'll turn up on some other Western team and be an all-star in three seasons.

It's a feeling I can't shake. He stays = he never plays a meaningful minute again.
He goes = flirts with the Hall of Fame.

i hear you. and i was saying that same thing for the last couple of years. but at this point....it just doesnt seem like his body is capable of handling basketball. i mean he hasnt seen the court in a couple years and is having to have surgery again, just rehabbing....

It's time to turn the page. i like Greg. The couple times i actually got to see and talk to him he was real nice and very un-assuming. But this is the chance for the team to officially put an end to the Greg Oden saga,

All roads do not stop with Greg. The same with James. Howard, Nowitski, Durant. There are other great players. And more will come. i've been a fan of the Blazers for a long time. This too shall pass.
