The way I see Oden is he's an updated version Ian Mahinmi when we had him. If he does come aboard with the Spurs and doesn't work out, we drop him like a hot rock and move on with very little financial loss. But if he does work out and progresses to his potential and stays injury free, which could be a fairy tale, the Spurs come out smelling like a rose with two bigs (Oden/Splitter) to go forward for a couple years into the post Duncan era. Again, if Oden comes aboard, it's a roll of the dice, for pocket change.
