Yao vs. Oden

Turns out there will be a NBA players vs. Yao and China's national team charity game on Sept. 14th in Beijing. Of particular interest for us Blazers fans is that Greg Oden will be part of the US team. Read about it here:

I see this as great for two reasons: 1) Even before he's played a single NBA game, Oden has already gotten involved with a huge charity project and it shows what a great guy he is, and that he really is going to fit well in the new Blazer culture,  and 2) Regardless of the less-than-game-time level of intensity that will be played it will still be fun to see GO go up against Yao, and also will help him get a little experience against an NBA all-star center without the super-high expectations that will hound him even in pre-season games.
