There's talk around Columbus that Oden is serioulsy considering staying another year. He loves Ohio State. He loves Matta. He loves his team.

I'm sure he would love to be a multi-millionaire too though.

He should only stay if the Celtics don't win the draft lottery.

(And he's gonna turn 19 in March??? looks like he's 44. )

I understand why people all think he's going to leave. But he seemed pretty sincere that he wanted to stay at Ohio State longer than just one year before the year even started. And I personally think he's staying.

I know kids say that all the time and leave for the NBA so we'll see what happens when attractive contracts get thrown in his face. But I've always been a little skeptical myself and if I were a NBA GM, I'd surely have a plan that does not involve him leaving early as my top option.

nick saban seemed pretty sincere, too...


oden is in the driver's seat. he knows he'll be the #1 overall pick no matter if he comes out this year or next. so my guess is he's just looking to see what teams have the best chances to get the #1 pick before he makes his decision on wether or not to come out.

The 10 worst teams in the league, record wise, are...
10. Sacramento
9. Chicago (via New York )
8. Portland
7. Boston
6. NO/Oklahoma City
5. Atlanta
4. Seattle
3. Charlotte
2. Philadelphia
1. Memphis

if I were Oden, the only teams on that list I'd want to go to if i had the choice, which he does, are Philly, Boston and Chicago... to maximize his marketability.

The Celtics never get quite bad enough to win the lottery...jeez, they even suck at sucking

No upperclassmen playing for my school (UConn) this year, basically whatever they do is just building for next year. Though it would be nice if they did well in March and erased last year's fiasco from my memory. I mean, George Mason? George Mason??? Ugh.

If Pierce can remain injured for a while, the Celts could slide right to Odenland.
If he returns soon, they could win the Atlantic Division.
(Of course the difference between the Atlantic title and the #1 pick will be about 3 games)

Well, the Celtics lost another player tonight, so they are heading in the right direction.

Brian Scalabrine went down too.

Quite possibly the goofiest and whitest "Token Goofy White Guy" I have ever seen.

When Connor Henry and Jerry Sichting played, the Celts didn't have token white guys, the roster was usually over 50% white, just ask Spike Lee.

tell kelvin sampson to stop sending us mail.

really... we get letters from indiana every week. we even got a christmas card with the team picture on it. i don't care. we got one from maryland and hofstra, too, but we know hofstra's coach and maryland had a player from here not too long ago (drew nicholas) so that makes sense, too. sampson sends us motivational quotes from water polo coaches. and i didn't make that up.

scalabrine would be a very productive player on a good team.

but for best token white guy, my vote will always remain with eric anderson. how many token white guys have their own wikipedia entries? not many, i assure you...

Yes, like he was in New Jersey. But under Doc Rivers, everyone is wasted

I wish I was a NBA fanatic in the '90s:

Quote:
During Anderson's time with the Knicks he only played at the end of blowout victories. At Madison Square Garden fans would chant his name hoping he would get a chance to play. At the time, he was the only white player on the roster. His career highlight came at the end of a blowout victory during the 1993-94 NBA season where he hit a meaningless 3 pointer at the buzzer and fans celebrated like the Knicks just won a championship.

That's true.

And I forgot Kurt Rambis...man I hated Rambis, not as much as Laimbeer, but up there.
