Greg Oden on Injuries and Criticism

by March 05, 2009

The big man opens up: “Question: So how tough is this with everyone talking whether you’re ever going to be able to play? Answer: It sucks. I want to be out there and just play. I feel better and more comfortable with myself when I’m out there playing and not really worrying about injuries and rehab and all that stuff and hearing people’s mouth about, ‘Oh, he’s injury prone.’ Like this isn’t an injury game. Like things don’t happen. You’d rather be out there playing where you don’t have to worry about people’s mouths.”
