I really thought there would be a post about this last night. On courtside coach Nate was on and talking about the growth of the blazers this offseason, when asked about Odens offseason schedule Nate changed his tone and talked about Greg needing to really work on his lateral movement and offensive post moves. Nate also talked about Oden going to Ohio state for summer class's he did not sound very happy that Oden would do this, this off season. Nate did not come right out and critisize Greg but he sounded like he had concerns.
Later on during the same show KP came on and he was asked about players offseasons after a little rambling he was bluntly asked about Odens growth this summer and if going to school was going to fit in with the offseason plans. KP talked about flying Bobby Medina and ??? Brain cramp the coach that came back to us from Loyola Marimount. to Ohio this summer to work with Greg.
I dont really have a firm opinion on what the Blazers should do with there off time obviously they are going to take some time to decompress after the long season, but Oden is a huge part of this team going forward I would think he could could go back to school a couple seasons from now. I really wanted to hear about him going to a big man camp(if they have those anymore after Pete Newells passing away)or just working his tail off on his continued rehab and just overall conditioning.
Great news about Jay Bay and Batum, they started working out the day after the playoffs were over. Incredible.
