• Ex-No. 1 pick Oden returns to watch Blazers

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 4, 2013
    In all, Oden appeared in just 82 career games for the Blazers, averaging 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds Oden took this season off to rehab but has had interest from several teams for next season, including the Cleveland Cavaliers. Greg Oden, the Trail Blazers' often-injured former center, was among the fans at the Rose Garden for Portland's game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night. Oden, seated courtside across the Blazers' bench, offered a peace sign in response. The Blazers believed the former Ohio State star could lead the team along with Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge to an NBA championship. His knee problems drew comparisons to Sam Bowie, the injury-plagued center the Blazers took ahead of Michael Jordan in 1984. He was recovering from his third microfracture knee surgery when he was let go and had not appeared at the Rose Garden since 2010.
