    So Greg Oden will be in Portland for a workout and interviews this week. Should be the shortest interview ever.
    Guy at the airport holding the "Greg Oden" sign: "You Greg Oden?"
    Oden "Yes."

    Isiah and Chucky Dolan will screw up the Knicks' draft somehow.

    1. Greg Oden will be a bust.

    2. Don't worry Boston fans. You guys are gonna' get a great player in Yi Jianlian. He's a combination of Dirk Nowitzki/Tracy Mcgrady.

    3. I'm crossing my fingers hoping that Acie Law lands with Detroit.

    1. Ummmmmmm, no.

    2. So, Boston won't be winning a playoff series anytime soon?

    3. Big fan of Acie Law in college; he's the next Randolph Childress in the NBA, however.

    Chuck, you've got to be kidding about Oden. He'll have an immediate impact on the defensive end and on the offensive boards, and will be a stud for the next 12 years at least.

    Oh, and Corey Brewer is probably going to be the Celtics pick.

    The guy looks like he lacks fire on the court. I can't quite figure it out, but his game just dosn't look right. It looks like he's always in slow motion. And to be a great big man in the league today, you gotta know how to score and Im not confident in his offensive game.

    I'd take Dwight Howard over him every time.

    Wait -- you'll take an established All-Star with three years in the league over a draft pick? Quite a gutsy call there, youngster. ::)

    Well hell, everyone's already dubbing Oden the next Russell.

    Memphis had better find a way to get up to No. 3 or they're not going to get Horford.

    Greg Oden workout? Huh?

    My suggestion would be the following:

    "You healthy?"

    "Then let's keep it that way."
