Greg Oden era almost begins

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

If you are in Portland honk your horn!

Wait, what are you doing reading a basketball blog while driving? Oh, no matter.

Greg Oden worked out lightly with the Portland Trailblazers.

Oden, the 7-foot center taken with the first pick in last year’s draft, participated in offensive drills and even dunked during 45 minutes of work Wednesday. The Blazers were in Sacramento for Thursday night’s game against the Kings.

“It was fun,” Oden told The Oregonian newspaper. “It felt good to get out there … and I wasn’t hurting at all.”

Coach Nate McMillan surprised the team when he called players to participate in a drill—and included Oden.

“There was somewhat of an uproar by the team,” McMillan said. “Some of them said `Greg?’ and I was like, `Yeah, Greg.’

“I think everyone was just excited to see him on the floor.” source

Here is a look at Greg in the Summer League.

Oden has the size and skills to turn Portland into a playoff team.
