Oden better than Shaq, Yao, and Howard?

Found this from the oregonlive.com's pregame link post, it is a good piece talking about how the writer feels Greg has not only not been a bust this year, but a very good player, when he plays. Basically he uses per 48 min stats to see how Greg stacks up against the better centers in the league. One interesting note from the comments as this: "I think it's informative and encouraging to compare Dwight Howard's rookie season stats extrapolated to 48 minutes to Oden's: Howard (04-05) 17.6 points, 14.8 rebounds, 2.44 block Oden (08-09) 19.1 points, 15.4 rebounds, 2.56 blocks Looks pretty good good to me!
