It’s been quite some ride for Miami Heat center Greg Oden, a ride with its ups and downs.
The No.1 overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft says as candid as can be that he’s happy with his situation, but as far as the way he’s been used, it was a disappointment.
“It wasn’t what I was hoping it would be,” the big man said. “I would have definitely liked to have played more but you know, everything that I’ve been through, I’m just happy to be out there and being on a team. Last year I wasn’t and this year I’m on a team that possibly can win the championship. I’m happy in that, but personally, playing wise, I’m not as happy as I want to be.”
