Last Night ... I think I saw a future LEGEND

By Zoo
Portland 116 Chicago 74
Greg Oden scored 11 points and added 10 rebounds and 3 blocks in less than 20 minutes of game time action. Chicago was never in the game so the impact Oden had on an already decided game when he entered will not be implied. But what I did see from the #1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft was a potential to be LEGENDARY. Oden is a 7 seven footer who takes up a tremendous amount of space in the paint and who at the very least will get a hand on every rebound that comes anywhere in the vicinity of the paint he occupies. And if it is on the offensive end when he gets the ball and goes back up chances are that he is taking a couple of people with him. Sure he is not Dream Olajuwon agile but he moves well for his size and while he is not David Robinson quick he is not Mark Eaton slow either. His 6 game averages of 10 pts 7.7 rebs and 2.5 blk in just about 21 minutes per game translates very well for a 5 year NBA vet never mind a rookie saddled with the expectations the size of the state he plays in. Most of what I saw from Oden points toward a future NBA Hall of Famer and Legend of the game but since it was just the Bulls I will not quite prepare his induction speech. But it is not as unrealistic as it seemed when he went down on opening night with another foot injury.

Jason Terry, Dallas - 13-21 fg. 31 pts, 4 asts and 3 stls.

Peja Stojakovic, N.O. - 3-8 fg. 7 pts

Dominant in Defeat.
Dwayne Wade, Miami - 16-30 fg. 40 pts, 11 asts, 5 blks and 3 rebs.
