ESPN says New Orleans not in Greg Oden's top 3



quote:

Greg Oden's decision set for Friday


quote:

Former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden plans to choose his new team Friday, according to sources close to the situation.

Sources told ESPN.com that Oden, after showing off his skills for several teams over the past few weeks, has not yet ruled out any of the six teams chasing him but is most likely to select his destination from the trio of Miami, San Antonio and Dallas.

New Orleans, Sacramento and Atlanta are the other known suitors for Oden. One source close to the process said Thursday night that the Pelicans, from that group, are the only other team still "in the mix."

This team will survive without him.

That makes no sense whatsoever. Why would New Orleans not be included with Miami, San Antonio and Dallas if we are "still in the mix"

Dammit, now who are we going to use that inactive list spot on?

ETA: I'd also like to know what Dallas offers over us. They're going to be way, way worse than we will next year.

Its pretty obvious he waited until today to choose as to not detract from our uniform unveiling. Also so he could have a uni at his presser.

This report doesn't add up. First, Dallas does not fit in that group. At best they're a playoff also ran, but I think they miss the playoffs again this season. Secondly, his agents have waged a non stop propaganda campaign for over a month against Miami and they're finally ready to stop just before the break point arrives? Was the source for this report Mark Cuban?

It has been 505 days since Greg Oden was last on an NBA roster, and 1,336 days since he last appeared in an NBA game. On December 5, 2009 – three years and eight months ago – Oden fractured his left knee cap four minutes into a game against the Houston Rockets and left the arena on a stretcher.

Just some perspective. If he does chose another team there's no reason to have a meltdown, this was always a lottery ticket type of situation, and we're talking scratch off, not Powerball.
