LOL WTF. You really believe that? Wtf is this, Jack?


Heard it from Blazer Fans, if even they are willing to say this about their own player, its not hard to believe them.

as far as oden vs. bynum...i don't think either one could have been in a tougher situation other than going up against dwight/yao. they basically faced one of the very very few opponents that can match their own size. when they get to face the dalemberts and biedrins' of the league, they are going to be able to impose their will.

Kobe has played in 91% (866 out of 952) of the games possible.

Vince has played in 88.5% (697 out of 788) of the games possible.

TMac has played in 86% (749 out of 870) of the games possible.


What is 12 minutes out of 83 games as represented in a percentage?

I like how people are claiming that the Blazers should have taken Conely/Horford? You have to be kidding me. Like 80% of fans would have took Oden, and 100% would have took Durant or Oden. Hindsight is 20/20 people.


And his injury was a freak one. That could happen to any player. This wasn't a "wear and tear" injury, just a freak accident.

0.30%

12 minutes/(82 games x 48 mins per game)

I did it too, but I did it with 36 minutes as the average of how many he should be playing. I got a little less than .40%

Tough luck, or maybe its Karma to Portland fans, hahahaha, hate on me for saying this all you want but being injured for all of his 1st season, minor injury in preseason and another injury in his first game, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets injured on his first playoff game.

..if that is not injury prone, I don't know what is.

rudy fernandez, he better get at least 30 mpg.

Wich old self would you be refering to?
Would it be the one that got injured in high school?
Maybe the one that got injured in college.
possibly the one that got injured in the preseason last year.
could have been the one that just had micro fracture surgery last year.

Don't worry with Jermaine O'Neal on your roster you'll find out soon enough what it means.

I like Oden and hope he comes back healthy and plays well. But, Blazer fans have only themselves to blame for the tone of this thread. They have been in here counting future championships and writing Oden's hall of fame speech since the minute they lucked into that ping pong ball.

Now, everyone sees a chance to rub their faces in it.

+1, with that said, I love Oden, Roy and Fernandez, but their fans do not deserve to see these the Blazers have success. Its been at least a decade since they have something to be hopeful about and they're already saying they are a dynasty before one game. I was definitely not impressed last night, in fact I fell asleep on my couch watching the game.

Actually it was the one before the knee surgery, the one dominating everyone put in front of him, even on one hand :-/

The Magic fans seem to be getting a lot of satisfaction from this. Sad lol.

And did that guy just brag about having Andrea Bargnani instead of Oden?

Yep, Karma's a *****. Just ask the Cincinnati's Bengal fans with all of their "who dey" crap in the only good year they had in about two decades. All went downhill after that season. :lol:

My opinion, if your team was the joke of the league and was the bottom feeders for 4-5+ years, then you best not get cocky or that **** will come back and bite your ass. I just can't help by LMAO at those type of fans that hype up their team and then this kind of crap happens to them. Feel for Oden though, wouldn't wish injury on a player. Don't feel the same for Blazer's fans.

Sidenote: Anyone wanna start up a "which team has the brightest future/ best young talent" thread again? :lol:

its been a 5 year playoff drought or something, but in 2000 we were in the WCF...

ITs too bad a few Blazers fans antagonized some of these people to actually laugh and be happy over an injury to a young player who has great character. Who the **** cheers on and laughs about an injury, seriously? Laugh about him going 0-4, being out of shape maybe, but don't laugh @ an injury you classless bastards.
