For Oden, there’s only one righteous move

Oft-injured Blazer center Greg Oden underwent successful microfracture surgery on his left knee in Vail, Colorado Friday, but the implications of his most recent season-ending injury will reach far beyond this year thanks to a complicated contact situation.

This is going to be a hot topic throughout the season and well into the summer, so I'm reposting this column from Thursday on my blog for a little extended exposure: (sorry for the ghetto link... technical issues).

It's my take on why Oden should do the right thing, and why the right thing is re-signing next season with the Blazers for the league minimum. Give it a read, and tell me if I'm crazy, a genius or something inbetween.
