Every Day is Greg Oden Day

Fans of Greg Oden can now follow him everyday for an entire calendar year! Well, sort of. Photographer "justapaperbag" is working on a year-long photo slideshow project of Oden, thanks to Flickr and a toy Oden doll. Each day a new picture of “Oden” in new and strange situations goes up. The pictures teeter precariously from the bizarre to the witty as the photographer poses the ...   More

Greg Oden: To Believe Or Not To Believe

Dare us basketball-starved fans take this video of the USA Olympic select basketball practice as actual evidence that Greg Oden looks more mobile and capable of defending the pick-and-roll in what will be his second pro season? Or are we so deep in the summer sports doldrums that we're grasping at any evidence of Oden fulfilling his potential (was it really only two summers ago that he was on ...   More

Blazers Media Day: Jerryd Bayless Halts Any Andre Miller Honeymoon

All of Portland may not be thrilled over the arrival of point guard Andre Miller. At today's media day at the Rose Garden as the Trail Blazers open camp this week, holdover second-year Blazers point guard Jerryd Bayless answered questions about Miller in the fewest words possible. Bayless acknowledged that Miller and last year's starting point guard, Steve Blake, are the frontrunners to play. ...   More

Do Two Good Exhibition Games For Greg Oden Mean Anything?

Every flash of progress by Greg Oden sends me and other fans into speculating that the Trail Blazers center is finally poised to become a big contributor. The latest example comes just two games into the exhibition season after Oden put up back-to-back good nights against lowly Sacramento. Oden —who I root for in part because he seems like a decent human being— has nowhere to go ...   More

An Animal Casualty Of The Civil War

As first reported by the (Albany) Democrat-Herald, an unlucky mallard was found before the Oregon State-Oregon game last week with its legs duct-taped and its feathers spray-painted orange. Even the kings of sports snark at Deadspin didn't think this vandalism in the name of rivalry was funny, pointing out to Oregon State fans that the mallard wasn't the "one who ran for 166 yards against your ...   More

Beth Slovic Questioned About Questioning Greg Oden's Manhood

As Penis-gate extends into its second day, some of the righteous indignation has been shafted onto WW's own Beth Slovic, who had the temerity to ask Greg Oden why exactly he was so "embarrassed" by his naked photos, since many people were impressed by what was revealed. This question outraged many people, because (in the words of my colleague Casey Jarman) at a press conference about a 7-foot man's ...   More

Greg Oden vs. Blake Griffin in the Blazers' First Preseason Game?

The Portland Trail Blazers' preseason schedule was released today. And while these things are generally pretty un-thrilling, the Blazers' first matchup against the Clippers on Oct. 5 could be interesting: If both players are healthy and their respective coaching staffs see fit, this could be the first time Greg Oden and Blake Griffin (the top draft picks from 2007 and 2009, respectively) face each ...   More
