Greg Oden: BUST or just BAD LUCK?

Posted on: February 21, 2012 4:49 pm
The Portland Trailblazers made Greg Oden (C) the No. 1 pick (out of Ohio State) in the 2007 NBA Draft; as of Monday, he is set to undergo his FIFTH KNEE SURGERY since he's been in the league.  It has been stated that Oden has not appeared in a NBA game since December of 2009.  In the 82 games that he has played...he's averaged 9.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in a game.

The question is, do you consider Greg Oden a BUST in the NBA...or just a player who ran into a lot of BAD LUCK

You decide.

Greg Oden: BUST or just BAD LUCK?

Bad Luck of course, Bust is when you are expected to be great and then suck it up, Kwame Brown is a bust.  Greg's body broke down on him and that has nothing to do with his talent or work ethic.  People want to blame him but we know he didn't have any control of his situation.
