I must admit I'm having kind of a post-draft hangover. It's a really pleasant one however. Every morning when I wake up I have to pinch myself because we've got what most people consider a franchise center! I know some, doing an Oden/Treebeard impression, will say, "Hoom-hom, let's not be hasty!" but still, you've got to admit this is a pretty good situation to be in. So you can forgive a long-time Blazer fan if four days later I'm STILL a little giddy.
That leads me to the first question for today:
What do you expect out of young Mr. Oden this year? I don't want championship predictions or hall-of-fame votes down the road, I'm talking about 2007-08 only. What kind of effect will he have on the court? How about statistically? Will he be Rookie of the Year? What will he need to learn/develop to make this year a success?
