5 offensive boards (9 total) in 19 minutes last night for Oden. Pretty impressive, even against Golden State.

4 fouls in that time though. He's got to work on that.

I keep hearing about Oden not being great offensively, but honestly, he doesn't look that bad to me.

With his size and speed combo, a catch - spin/drop step - dunk is more effective a move than most...

David West was an all star in the West last season. You don't honestly believe he's better than Bosh, do you? Same goes for Marion and Mehmet Okur in the previous years.

Yeah, relatively strong.

But I mean, a team makes a strong push to finish at .500 and that makes them a top 5 team in the league?

That ranking has got to be based on this guy thinking Oden is going...

Well the Portland Trailblazers and their #5 spot would beg to differ.

They haven't earned a playoff berth, let alone top 5 teams in the league.

Jeremy Wotherspoon and Perdita Felicien are unimpressed by this half assed choking effort.

They're averaging over 100 points while playing great defense.

That's what basketball is all about...doesn't matter how they're doing it.

That's because he's 7 feet at 12 years old, you see.

He's playing against kids that probably average about 5'3. So the 2 foot height advantage would help him out a bit.
