I know he hasn't been playing well but after the facial on Oden he may trust the ankle a lil more. He needs to stop taking so many jumpers and drive more
hahaha wow u put that right up after that dunk, thats impressive. I would say it was allright but odens not playing athletically at all right now so i wouldnt put too much stock into it
I loved it lol. Two of my favorite players going head to head. Good aggressive drive by Rose, but Oden didn't think he was going to dunk. He just missed the block. Oden also got dunked on by Noah in the 1st half.
Oden is improving every game though lol. He's really getting better. He looks dominate at times. As he works on not fouling (which he's getting better at) and staying on the floor, I really feel he can be dominate at both ends. He looks great tonight. He's active on the offensive glass, scoring well in the post and making his free-throws.
It's rally nice to see Oden playing well, actually I hated when Noah dunked on him............i felt bad for him................he seems like such a cool dude.
It happens. A few plays later, Oden tore the rim down versus Noah, so they're even lol. I've only seen Oden get dunked on three times since high school. Last year vs Gerald Wallace on an alley oop and then the two times during the game tonight.
I LoV€ greg and he is on his way to becoming a great player he reminds me of a baby lol
A baby? How so? He's one old ass looking baby!
I see him get dunked on quite a bit, but that happens when you jump for everything(in a good way). Anyways Rose is settling way way way too much, I was watching the game earlier in the 1st quarter.............noticed that Rose shot 3or4 J's back to back to back and there was still 8:00 left in the 1st.............Thats not his game........not even close.
You've seen him get dunked on like he got dunked on by Rose and Noah quite a bit? I don't think so... Not like that. Maybe he was in the area. RJ had a nice dunk on him when he was under the rim, but Oden didn't jump.
You're right about Rose though... Taking too many jump shots. I don't like it one bit.
Oden is dominating tonight people. He's showing us what's to come lol. He's been a beast on the offensive glass, scored AND passed well out of the low post, made his free-throws and has played very good D. I know you're watching Beanz816! Give my boy his due credit since you're his biggest critic. He's been a monster tonight and looks MUCH better in the post.
oden has been playing like this for the last couple of games, although he hasnt put up these kind of stats he has really looked to be agressive with the ball down low and seems to be gaining confidence everytime he puts the ball in the basket. i dont want to speak too soon but hopfully if the last couple of games are any type of indicator greg is finally figuring out how to stay out of foul trouble(now watch him foul out in 14 minutes on wednesday) nate even left him in the game in the first half after he picked up his 2nd foul, going against nates rule of 2 fouls in the first half. nates starting to trust the big guy
Greg Oden has come to life... Whatta game from both Aldridge and Oden... They each had 24 pts... They also got 12 and 13 rebounds respectively... That's a monster game from both players... Greg Oden needs a game like this to boost his confidence and it showed against my Bulls... They simply toyed the post against a Bulls team that didn't really have anything to offer there other than Noah...
Derrick Rose needs to do a little more of that in your face slam and be aggressive going to the paint rather than try and attempt more of his so-called jumpers... Who does he think he is? Ben Gordon? Derrick has his strength and he needs to be able to do what he does best which is penetrate and absorb the contact which he does excellently...
Luol Deng looks automatic from the mid-range... He needs to keep this up...
everyone gets dunked on but noah dunking on oden was very nice..same with rose. but ive seen rose dunk on someone a couple games ago too so im guessing the ankle has been alot better for a minute. blake played some pretty good d on him this game though. like someone said on here rose is taking too many jumpers especially when his jumper isn't that good or consistent enough to shoot as many as he does.....and with oden it would be nice if he did this more but he still takes hi self out of games which his fouling too much
