Not that this is breaking news or anything, but in Bill Simmons recent MVP column, he takes the time to single out Oden as the "Human Fouling Machine". He then compares Oden to Stanley Roberts based on how much they fouled per minute.
I usually dont pay much attention to what Simmons says, and usually takes his opinions with a grain of salt, but it really irritates me how much he dogs on Oden. He never mentions anything he does well and never offers the opinion that he might improve into a high quality player a few years donw the line. Its almost like he thinks this is all Oden will ever be, and it ticks me off.
Meanwhile, he cant stop himself from slobbering all over Durant even though the guy is a poor defender at best and would not have given the Blazers anything they didnt already have.
He finishes the post by saying "can we all stop acting like the Blazers didnt totally screw up the 2007 draft". I find this particularly annoying givent the fact that Oden contributes to one of the biggest / most athletic front lines in the league and the Blazers are going to get home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Look past one year Simmons. You look like a fool.
P.S - Bucher is still wrong about Portland vs. OKC, even though he tried to clear up his comments on the B.S Report.
