Just a question, I would like an answer to. I live in Florida. I bought tickets to the Portland vs Orlando game, because it was going to be the first time I could see Greg Oden play with my own eyes, and possibly get his autograph. I'll admit it, I am huge Greg Oden fan. I think the NBA needs more kids with his kind of attitude and demeanor. Heck I am a huge Florida Gator fan, and I secretly routed for Oden (a-bit) in the 2006 title game. He didn't let me down, and my team won, so I was really happy. But the same day Oden went down, the Gators lost to Alabama, ending their chance for a repeat football championship. I'm still recovering. Anyways, I really want to meet Greg and wish him well, and maybe still get his autograph. I still believe in him as an impact player and I believe that, God willing, he can be a miracle to the world, in his comeback.
I am a fan of Dwight Howard too. I just really miss the post up game and great centers I grew up watching. My all-time Professional Athlete Hero is David Robinson (Sorry MJ, I think the Admiral is a better person on the whole). I know Greg can be someone like them. And by them I mean a game changing Center like David, Dwight, Hakeem, Patrick, Diekembe, Robert Parrish, Shaq, and the like.
