Greg Oden already has it. What a breath of fresh air this kid is going to be.
The demand on him will be great....but he's as calm, cool and collected as I've ever seen. He arrived in Portland early Tuesday afternoon....with throngs of media and fans waiting to greet him. Also, a pair of rookies joined in (Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge). No better way to roll out the red carpet. I heard from a very reliable source that Oden and his mom were going "to look for houses" later Tuesday afternoon. Hmmm...makes you wonder, doesn't it?
I'm certain that what the Blazers will see during his workout Wednesday will solidify his standing as the #1 pick in next Thursday's NBA Draft. I think Kevin Durant has a very good future, but for Portland.....the choice is obvious---GO WITH THE ROCKSTAR, GREG ODEN!!!
