Rant My Life: Former No. 1 Pick Greg Oden Attempting NBA Comeback
Remember back in 2007 when there was all of the hype surrounding former Ohio State Buckeyes center Greg Oden when he was selected No. 1 overall by the Portland Trail Blazers? Well, we all know that worked out great considered Oden lasted four years in the league a
Meanwhile, Kevin Durant–who was the second overall pick that year–continues to be one of the top players in the league by displaying MVP type numbers each night with the Oklahoma City Thunder. At this point, it’s clear the Trail Blazers made a huge mistake during the draft that season by passing on Durant for Oden instead, but the funniest factor from this draft class may be the fact that the center is trying to make a comeback.
Apparently, Oden is attempting a comeback for the 2013-14 season and what’s even more surprising–there are numerous teams expressing interest in the former Ohio State standout. For a player with such high expectations entering the NBA, Oden is arguably one of the biggest busts of all time and to think of him attempting a comeback is noting short of hilarious.
The fact that Oden only saw action in two seasons with the Trail Blazers (82 games) since he was drafted in 2007 shows how injury prone he really is and why it would be foolish for any team to even consider taking a chance on him next season. Oden can say and try as hard as he wants to make a comeback attempt in the big leagues, but it’s clear he’ll never make the type of impact he could have made if he just stayed healthy.
