Maybe Brandon was right...

As long as Brandon compared GO to Dwight Howard, let's take a closer look.. Here's a comparison of Howard's first year stats - converted to 48 minutes, compared to GO first 4 games - also converted to 48 minutes.

Points:
Howard; 17.67
Oden: 16.9

Rebounds
Howard: 14.7
Oden: 16.1

Turnovers
Howard: 2.94
Oden: 3.73

Blocks
Howard: 2.44
Oden: 6.21

Assists
Howard: 1.33
Oden: 0.75

Steals
Howard: 1.38
Oden: 1.24

FG%
Howard: 51.9
Oden: 44.4

FT%
Howard: 67%
Oden: 61.1%

Now consider that Oden has been sitting out for a year and is still getting used to his teammates. Oden a failure? His numbers look pretty decent compared to Dwight 1.0, and that's all we can fairly compare right now. If he stays healthy and continues to get better, he certainly could be as good or better.
