Greg Oden Spent a Week Away from Modern Civilization

by Marcel Mutoni

You may think that high-profile NBA players lead a glamorous lifestyle, with all of the comforts and luxuries of the modern world, and for the most part that is absolutely correct. But every once in a while, they go through the same headaches and annoyances that the common man occasionally endures.

Like the inability to take a hot shower, for instance.

Just ask Greg Oden, who recently experienced what it’s like to live without some of the things we take for granted on a daily basis. From Oden’s blog:

So i went through the whole week with no phone, no internet, and no hot water.

It was just something kinda funny to me because i remember that stuff happening when we lived in a little house, but now we are in a huge house in a beautiful neighborhood and it still happens.

To make matters worse for Oden, this happened at his mother’s house, and he’s worried about the circumstances of putting this story out there without her permission. See, he’s totally just like you and I! Except, well, not at all.
