Calkins -- Sam Bowie's Advice To Greg Oden: "Finish Your Rehab"

19
Matt Calkins of The Columbian chatted with former Portland Trail Blazers center Sam Bowie about current Blazers center Greg Oden... -------------------------------- "The money does matter. If anyone tells you the money doesn’t matter, they’re lying. But there’s also pride and dignity. And once you’re on the court, no one’s running down the floor saying ‘hey, I make more money than you.’ Money is secondary," Bowie said. "Looking back on my career, one of the things I would do differently is give my body more time to recover. I felt guilty. I felt like I was getting compensated so well, but never able to perform. So I allowed the situation to get me on the court sooner than I should have. That would be my one piece of advice to Greg — as hard as it is, finish your rehab. Give your body extra time." -------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
