The Oden situation reminds me of Michael Olauakandi (if I spelled it right). He was a 7 footer for the Clippers and was playing great ball. Contract came up and then started the rumors of him coming to the Spurs to end up going to the Celtics. The thing with him was bad knees. No team really wanted to risk signing bad knees. Lo and behold he went to a bball powerhouse and faded into obscurity. I see this happening with Oden. I think he will have flashes of potential but those knees are too much of a risk from a business standpoint. Me personally, I'd rather develop Aaron B. I think he has the toughness and team oriented mindset that can help out a lot.
