That's fine and it's your opinion but Greg Oden was the #1 overall pick for a reason and has had huge games in the NBA before he broke down. Again low risk high reward. Where is the big upside on a D Leaguer? I'd much rather have Greg Oden versus Larry Owens or Desmon Farmer? Who are those guys? D Leaguers signed by the Spurs. Who did what? Nothing with them and nothing with other teams! Greg Oden injured yes but at least he has some skins on the wall and is only 25. Oden>D League player
