It Tends To Be Cloudy in Portland
This has nothing to do with the Celtics (FUCKING LOTTERY), and Truehoop's pretty much got it covered, but it's still worth ruminating on... Greg Oden is having "exploratory" arthroscopic knee surgery this week, which can't be a good sign. This is Oden's third surgery since leaving high school (granted, one was a tonsillectomy, but still) and if you're a Blazers fan you might be starting to worry that your franchise player could resemble Frankenstein by the time he turns 21. Don't get me wrong, I still think Oden's a once-in-a-blue-moon talent who could and probably still be a dominant force for years to come, but after a solid year of Bill Russell comparisons, Brad Daugherty might start making his way into the conversation as well.
