Huh? Where do you get your ideas or opinions? They were 14 games better than us last year and didn't lose anything. Brand, Kaman and Colison replaced by Calderon, Ellis and Dalembert (maybe with Oden) makes them worse?. They have a super rich owner that spoils their players. A HOF player that will help bring him along, totally no pressure. The roster is short term and they are going flip everything next summer, so no high expectations. Its a great situation. You think they are going down to 25 wins or worse? It's either that or you are projecting the Pelicans with about 50 wins. No team with a healthy Dirk is really bad team..
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.

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.

I heard this on SportsCenter this morning. ESPN is sooooo damn predictable. Having us involved just isn't a story for them.
