Any One feel bad for Greg Oden?


Recommended Posts

I feel bad for any kid in his situation. Hard to believe this kid (yes, he is still that) is only 22 years old and his NBA career, something he has been working towards his entire life is about to most likely end due to something out of his control. I'd rather see a kid with a lot of promise just wash out due to not being talented enough than see ones career end like this. Thankfully he does have a college education, or at least some to fall back on.

Didn't he only go to college for 1 year? I could be wrong.

Unless they have a terminal illness or unfortunate family death I will never feel bad for millionaires.

Just because they have money doesn't mean that they aren't equally as devastated when their life's dream seems to end before it ever begins. No matter the amount of money in one's bank account, a man is still a man, and I'm sure he is crushed by all of this.

I wish him well and hope he can make yet another recovery.
