I have been a long time blazer fan living in LA and have to say that I cannot wait to see Oden play in a regulation game. My wife and I were fortunante enough to catch him play in the Vegas Summer League with court seats. I also bought tickets on the front row next to the bench last night vs clippers so I could try to get a picture with him. I know that the demands for time on Greg must be intense, but I have to say that I have been pretty unhappy with the two times that I have asked for a split second picture. In both instances (Vegas/LA) Greg has shunned me and I have never been treated that way by any other blazer player/coach. The reason I have invested my hard earned money to support the Blazers is that they are approachable and real compared to the Teams that play here. I have supported the team through thick and thin and will continue to do so, i just hope that Greg does not have the same approach to a child who would ask for a split-second of his time. I would like to thank Lamarcus, Martell, Jarrett and Travis for taking some time to acknowledge our support. Good luck Greg I will be sure not to ask again.

Always a blazer fan.

Casey, do you think Josh Childress' impressive fro gives him an unfair advantage on defense?
