In case you missed it, on Saturday Ben posted an exclusive interview with the man everybody wants to hear from nowadays, Greg Oden. You can share your thoughts on the interview and Greg's outlook in the near future in that post. Once you're done with that, come back here and talk about this for a minute.
What does Greg Oden need to be in order for the Blazers to be successful in the long run?
Obviously you'll need to define terms, namely what long-term success means. To me it's a championship but maybe you have other ideas. Once you've established the bar for Portland's future, talk about how much you need from Greg in order to get there. If you're feeling sprightly you might want to include your assessment of his chances to produce at your required level.
The conversation is open...
