Sports Sound Off: Greg Oden – Grand Opening, Grand Closing!!!
At last, yes at last are the words that several Portland area fans were screaming last night as they watched their number one pick from a year ago Greg Oden finally take the court for the Blazers in there season opener vs Kobe and the Lakeshow.
“Well my friends”, as John Wayne McCain would say, it doesnt look so great! Midway through the first quarter of action Center Greg Oden was fouled in a scrum under the basket in which Oden came up a little lame and hobbled. He would return the bench shortly after with two fouls only to be seen again in street clothes in a post game press confereence. The injury has been tabbed as a sprained foot.
His void was felt immediately, as the Lakers cruised to 20 point pounding of the Blazers. Led by Kobe’s 23 points and 11 boards the Lakers look to be off to a great start. Lamar came off the bench to drop 9 points along with Ariza’s 15 to help pace the Lakers attack.
Though it is early the Lakers seemingly have the tools to make another great run at a Western Conference title. Keep it locked for the best coverage of shit you really give a fuck about!!!
