Portland Trail Blazers Greg Oden Out For The Year Again & Wears Perfect T-Shirt To Tell You
Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden and former number one overall draft pick, which Calvin Casey said was a good one at the time, will have microfracture surgery on his left knee and will not play this season. Oden has only played in 82 total games since being drafted number one in 2007. The Blazers picked Oden instead of Kevin Durant, who went to the Oklahoma City Thunder and has blossomed into one of the NBA’s best players.
Oden hasn’t played since last December because he needed surgery to repair a fractured left patella. The Blazers say this operation, will repair damaged cartilage and is unrelated to the patella injury.
The Blazers announced last month they would not offer Oden a contract extension. He was the first No. 1 pick since Kwame Brown not to get one at the end of his rookie contract. Oden will be a restricted free agent next summer and the Blazers will be able to match any offers for him.
The center has already earned over $15 million dollars and will earn another $6 million at the end of this season bringing his average per game to $265,811.24 in the 82 he has only been able to play in.
By the way look at Oden’s shirt in the above picture, pretty much describes everything.
