Ian Thomsen On Greg Oden

80
Ian Thomsen of Sports Illustrated has an in-depth look at Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden... ----------------------------- "I wear orthotics in everything except in my dress shoes -- they're so tight in dress shoes," he said. "But I wear orthotics in everything else, because if I don't, it's so significant that you notice it. People will come up to me and ask, 'Why are you limping?' It's just how I walk." He traces the issues back to an older injury. "I spoke to some experts and they say it's in my hip," Oden said, pointing to his right side. "I had a hip fracture when I was in sixth grade, and I saw one guy who said that could have something to do with your pain over here [as he pointed to his left knee], that it's just throwing you off a little bit. It doesn't happen right away, but sometime down the line it's going to happen." ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
