Greg Oden finally played in NBA again. That alone is a reason to feel happy about. Severe knee injuries have ravaged a very promising career (that too, a hall of fame career). He himself has told that he became an alcoholic during his rehab period in Portland. Would he have had a better and successful rehab in a different team is entirely up for speculation. He has also told that he has made enough money and doesn’t want to chase after that. And that he is going through the painful rehab process purely to do what he loves the most – to play basketball at NBA level.
A very piece on his return: http://www.nba.com/heat/news_recap/return-greg-Oden. I am skeptical if he can raise his game to play at All-Star level. For that, he need to play more minutes. For now, that seems far-fetched. But if he continues to play, am sure he is gonna impress. And that’s something to look forward to.
