I have never been party to "conspiracy" theories but the officiating calls against G.O. are getting to the rediculous point. I totally agree with those who say Oden plays out of position alot and is learning how to position himself and not commit the offensive or defensive foul. His positioning causes him to foul i agree but not to the extent that he is being called for.
I truely don't get some of the calls i see going against G.O. Yes, its his rookie year...yes, he is learning how to play the NBA game..........But he was and is good enough to play well and change games. I swear it seems like some of the calls are just simply "hey, we want to mess with ya and call the foul" type ref fouls. This is not to say that G.O. doesnt make mistakes but i just truely feel he is being called for fouls by officals unfairly. I am no expert but i have watched basketball my whole life and i consider myself(semi) competent and some of the calls i have seen made against Oden have been nothing short of god awful.
I do not prescribe to "conspiracy" theories but i truely think G.O. is being made an example of this year......the reason i have no idea but i absolutely believe that its true. The Blazers played the rockets tough tonight, next game we WILL pull off the W. Go blazers, get the W on sunday!!!!
