NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Greg Oden is down and out for the rest of the season, a season in which Greg Oden had seemingly found himself and was playing the best of his NBA career. Greg Oden has been cursed by injuries since entering the NBA and once again the curse strikes.

It appears as if the whole Blazer organization is feeling the effects of the curse right now. Coach Nate McMillan has ruptured his Achilles tendon, which is minor when compared to the fact that his assistant Coach, Maurice Lucas, has a return of his bladder cancer, which is on par with the fact that owner Paul Allen of Microsoft fame has told everyone that he is involved with a fight with cancer.

NBAObsessed is a little bit sensitive to the cancer battles having recently fought off Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

The entire Blazers organization is concerned about Greg’s welfare.

At Rebound, Oden still had his mind on the game. Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard, who was with Oden throughout the ordeal, said Oden continually urged Pritchard to check the score of the game on his Blackberry. Tests confirmed the worst by halftime and Oden returned to the locker room to be with his teammates, urging them to “keep fighting.”

Pritchard said the injury was like a “punch to the gut.”

“The challenging part for me is sometimes life’s not fair, you know?” Pritchard said. “I’ve seen this kid work his tail off. He’s put in the work. He’s done absolutely everything we’ve ever asked him to do and more. And he’s going to go through that again, and I know that’s challenging for him.”

Greg Oden finds himself in an all too familiar position

Greg Oden finds himself in an all too familiar position

Greg Oden missed his rookie season with the dreaded micro fracture surgery. In his sophomore NBA season Oden missed 15 games after the All Star break with a chip in his knee cap. Now this year after getting off to a great start he is once again out for the year.

NBAObsessed talked about Greg’s improvement before.

The scary part is that a writer from ESPN wrote how Greg Oden’s gate is all wrong and reminded him of other centers that never could get past the injury bug. Could that be what is happening or is it just the Curse of the Blazers?
