Charley Rosen - Latest injury will derail Oden for good

I can not understand some people, and by some people I mean people like Charley Rosen. Can he really believe the crap he is putting on paper? I expect it from other fans, the "I told you so" comments, the "he is another sam bowie" comments. But to say Greg is done as a player and the Blazers shouldn't even resign him after his rookie deal is done? Really? Did he write this piece about Andrew Bynum last year when he hurt his knee cap and had to sit out the second half of the season for the 2nd straight year? Did he howl at the moon when the Laker's resigned him? What is really sad is that Rosen is not the only guy out there saying this, Sherman Alexie said on truehoop that Oden is, "likely done as an everyday player for good". Have these guys not seen Bynum playing today? How about big Z in Cleveland setting the franchise record for games played? Have they forgotten that he couldn't stay on the court for his first couple of seasons? I guess what makes me so upset at Charley Rosen is that what he rights has the power to influence the masses. Eventhough I know he must have been brain dead when he wrote that, a casual fan does not. They just see a story on Fox about how Greg is done. And maybe it is because so many of my friends are just casual fans, because I have already had to help bring some friends back from the edge.
