FanPost

A little 3rd party KP/ Greg Oden "Inside" info

So I was reading the Greg Oden FanPost, and my wife mentioned that she had a client who worked for the Blazers.

Let me note here that my wife doesn't know anything about the Blazers except what she's heard from me.

After asking if he could get us tickets, and her shooting it down (hey- it never hurts to ask), she mentions that KP was fired because of the Oden/ Durant flap.

I responded that Allen has always liked athletic scorers, and it's no shock he wanted Durant.

She then says, no, it was the other way around. KP wanted Durant. Badly. And Allen vetoed him and insisted on Oden. And apparently KP held that over Allen's head any time they disagreed. Allen decided he didn't like that, and KP was gone.

The other thing she shared is that the general feeling around the Blazers is that something is very wrong with Greg from a physiological standpoint. The advanced aging that everyone jokes about is not limited to his face and the way he walks- he actually has advanced aging in his joints and other parts of his body as well.

I know this is sketchy, but let me just say that my wife has a near-photographic memory, and absolutely no cause to BS here. The Blazers employee may have an agenda, but she says he's about the most honest, straightforward guy she's worked with.

The only reason I'm passing this along is that it was really interesting to me, and I thought I would share a little scuttlebutt, even un-sourced. So, grain of salt.
