Greg Oden doesn't regret signing with Heat in any way

When I asked him if he was bummed that he wasnít playing more, this was his response: ďAre you kidding? I was a professional rehab/workout guy for four years. I wasnít even a basketball player ó just a guy who got paid to exercise. I spent four years trying to get back on an NBA court. Now that Iíve done that, itís not fair to myself to complain about minutes. I knew coming into this that I wasnít going to be the player I once was. I just wanted to get healthy and then help out any way I could.Ē

I asked him straight-up: ďIf this is the final chapter of the Greg Oden story ó if youíre destined to be a benchwarmer for the rest of your career ó are you OK with that? Will you be satisfied with your legacy?Ē ďIím over all of that,Ē Greg told me. ďI know Iím one of the biggest busts in NBA history and I know that itíll only get worse as Kevin Durant continues doing big things Ö Itís frustrating that my body canít do what my mind wants it to do sometimes. But worrying or complaining about it isnít going to fix anything Ö I wish the circumstances would let me play more, but I certainly donít regret coming back, and I donít regret signing with the Heat.Ē
