Greg Oden Returns to the Court

Finally, Greg Oden is officially back to full strength. Although the full contact workout he participated in today was a 1v1 session with Channing Frye(not exactly what you would consider an intimidating presence), it is good to hear that he's on track to be ready for the season. Oden is already a defensive force and his offensive game is probably more effective than 80 percent of the stiffs that play the 5 in the league. His post game, based on what I saw of him at OSU and the summer league last year could seriously use some polishing. If you look at the Youtube vid I embedded below, you can tell that the old... er I mean young man has packed quite a few pounds of muscle. It will be interesting to see him go up against the likes of Yao Ming, Dwight Howard, Shaq, Bynum, etc....
