Greg Oden just can't keep it together.
The No. 1 pick in the 2007 draft will miss the rest of the 2010-11 season after he has microfracture surgery on his left knee. But this shouldn't shock Blazer fans as Oden has been spotted in street clothes more often than a Blazer uniform as the big man's rookie year was postponed because of similar surgery on his right knee. In 2008-09 — his sophomore season — he started just 39 games. Last season? Not much better as he broke his left kneecap early in December and called it a season thereafter.
Being compared to Kwame Brown or Sam Bowie isn't what NBA players like to hear, but the media can't help but bring these names up when speaking of Oden.
