    Since Oden has been waived by Portland he is a free agent now and he can go to any team he wants or that could be interested in him.

    Not related to the draft whatsowever

    The Suns doctors managed to recover Stoudemire from a knee microfracture and Grant Hill from his ankle perennial problems...maybe they can help Oden as well?

    I didnt mean it to sound like Oden would be linked to the Cavs draft. I meant it would be in addition to the draft. My fault.

    Oden's agent explains client's behavior during last days as a Blazer

    The Greg Oden era may be over in Portland but Oden's agent, Mike Conley, Sr., says don't be too quick to consider Oden's career to be over.
    ?Everyone is quick to talk bust, but put themselves in his shoes,? Conley told CSNNW.com. ?He has gone through a lot as a young man and he is continuing to work to get back. For him to come back is going to be a remarkable perseverance on his behalf.?

    Having gone through five major knee operations, Conley says Oden's spirits are high and he's looking forward to getting back on the court and proving that he can still be a force in this league.

    Which means, he's not thinking about calling it quits.
    ?No he's not retiring. The only way that would happen is if he was forced to and I don't see that happening,? Conley said. ?He's dedicated to making sure he's back on the court as soon as possible.?

    It's been quite a while since Oden spoke to members of the media. When Oden was rehabbing at the Trail Blazers' practice facility, he would dodge the media and quickly head to the weight room where media members are prohibited.

    Conley gives an explanation for Oden's avoidance.
    ?Greg didn't want to be a distraction,? Conley said. ?He didn't want all the attention to be on him during the season. That was his way of assisting the team.?

    Besides the fact that Oden wasn't available to media, he seldom attended games. In fact, he was rarely in town.
    Before Oden was waived by the Trail Blazers, CSNNW.com had learned in Indiana that Oden was putting his condo up for sale.

    Conley spoke on that matter.
    ?I don't know for sure but it makes sense,? Conley said. ?His place in Portland is on the tenth floor and he would have go up two flights up stairs to get there. That just wasn't conducive to the condition he's in on two crutches. It just was a better situation for him to be home.?

    In four seasons, Oden has played in only 82 career games. He's back in his hometown of Indiana and is still immobile on crutches. If rehabilitation goes as planned, he could be ready to play by early next year. The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers ? to name a few ? have been rumored to have interest in the unrestricted free agent big man.

    Wonder if Greg should consider Peter Wehling, molecular orthopedist, Duesseldorf Germany

    He's the one that worked on Kobe and some other big name(s) went there... supposedly with great results

    That guy is really special..he created the process of "spinning blood".

    They withdraw the blood, spin it in a special machine, and the red blood cells end up with more oxygen in them. As you get older, your blood cells lose oxygen, and healing becomes more difficult.

    In a sense, spinning the blood, gives you younger blood and your body recovers much faster and healthier.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea for Greg, although 3 microfracture surgeries is probably impossible to come back from anyways. I don't see him in the NBA again truthfully, although I'd love to see it happen. Even if he could, I can't see him as any more than a 10-15 minute a night guy. His gift is his curse....the size he was born with, he doesn't hold naturally. Huge guys like Shaq, Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard..they all carried the weight and fit in their bodies. Greg was having leg surgeries when he was seven b/c his legs were different sizes.

    It's too bad b/c he really is a great guy. He needs to write a book someday.

    Just a quick FYI on the procedure...

    They withdraw your blood, and put it in a machine that "spins" the blood. By spinning it, the blood cells are infused with wore oxygen. As you age, your blood cells lose oxygen. Blood cells are more effective in healing processes when they have the optimal level of oxygen.

    It's an interesting procedure, but it looks to have very real results. You're basically turning the clock back on your blood cells and give your body the recovery ability of a younger person.
