Oden an omen
October 30, 2008 - Neil Rudel
Our NBA fantasy season, now in its 17th season, has resumed.
Draft night was held Monday, and I was thrilled to get Portland second-year rookie Greg Oden in the fifth round. The room/other 14 general managers went quiet when I picked him, usually a good sign.
Then I flipped on Colin Cowherd on Tuesday morning. He was talking about how injury-prone Oden has been and how Portland fans shouldn't get their hopes up. I turned him off.
Sure enough, Oden plays 13 minutes in the opener and gets hurt.
Now I see he's out 2-4 weeks.
This is not my idea of fantasy.
