Oden's playing time




 Theres something i dont understand.  Someone who has had a similar injury history but is now healthy in Andrew Bynum is getting 31 minutes per game in the preseason.  Greg is only getting 24.   I know people might be tired around here about the constant dissection of Oden, but i think this is significant.

 

What is the plan for Oden this year?  My view was if he is healthy, which he absolutely will be, he should be playing around 30 per game.  But do u guys think that having Przy is still going to get 24 minutes a game?  If not, why not start getting Oden used to those kinds of minutes as soon as possible?  The only reasons i can think of not doing this all stem from the fact that it's preseason.  1, fear of injury in a meaningless game...2, trying to figure rotations...3, i dunno i cant think about it cuz it makes me angry.

 

I cant imagine this post will get a lot of responses, but im just trying to see if anyone feels kinda the same way.  And am i just being a Nervous Pervis?  Personally, i think Nate feels compelled to use Przy just cuz hes there.  Any sign of trouble, ya got nice warm blanket to cover up.  But the things that will advance Oden's game the most is playing through growing pains.  His overall impact on the game will still be positive, so i just dont get playing him for less than 30 minutes.  could be preseason, but im just worried about this strategy of playing em only lets say 24 minutes or 26 persisting thru the entire season.

 

its probably just over analysis relating to a desperate yerning of the season finally getting under way.
