Greg Oden played eight minutes, scored six points, and pulled in two rebounds tonight in Miami’s loss to the Wizards. And all of his body parts stayed attached the whole time!

Sooooooo… Greg Oden is having another surgery. Out for the season. Again.

Since we really empathize with the guy, here’s a great commercial from ESPN featuring good ol’ Babyface. :(

A List of Notable Portland Injuries

  • Greg Oden: Microfracture surgery, left knee, out for at least this season.
  • Elliott Williams: Dislocated right patella, out for season.
  • Jeff Pendergraph: Torn right ACL, out for season, released.
  • Joel Przybilla: Ruptured/dislocated right patella, out since 12/22/09.
  • Brandon Roy: Unexplained knee swelling.

Last year, Oden broke his kneecap, Roy tore his meniscus, Travis Outlaw broke his foot, Rudy Fernandez had back surgery, Nicolas Batum tore his labrum, and even coach Nate McMillan ruptured his Achilles tendon during practice.

What is going on with Portland? Is their practice facility built over an ancient Native American orthopedic surgeon’s office? Did the team trainer desecrate a mummy’s knee? Do they all need to be wearing Shape-Ups?

Maybe, because it’s Portland, they’re relying on a hipster trainer - giving players ironically retro health care with vintage medicine that’s so bad, it’s good.

Bumming. SRSLY. Bumming.
We no like. Cut this big guy a break, for once.

I got nothin’. Just an excuse to post a Greg Oden party photo before the season begins.
