Portland Trailblazers declare season over and no refunds on season tickets
It's been confirmed. Greg Oden, The number 1 overall pick by the Portland Trailblazers in this year's draft, is gone for the season after having microfracture surgery performed on his knee. It's always painful to see a city pin it's hopes for a championship on one guy and then to see him go down before ever playing a minute of professional ball. This isn't "Len Bias" bad, but then again the 1986 Celtics were defending champs when they picked him up. My condolences to the Portland Trailblazers owners, players and fan base on your stillborn season.
