even if Oden starts to suk or gets injured, Blazers will take team option on him for 2 more years in '10. Too much talent to give up on after 2 years.
Rememer how much time they waisted on Miles, and Miles never had the talent of Oden

but i think by 2010, Oden will be a top 3 C in the West. He isnt that far already. And by 2012, top 3 in the league
