    Going by the 3.6 FTA per game in the playoffs, yes.

    Per 36 minutes the second worst of his career.

    Keep going but you're wasting my time. His BS fts came in 2006, not last year. Let it go.

    Re: Greg Oden not playing in preseason?

    What a stupid post. Rose had not completely recovered from his injury. There is a difference between a doctor no longer forbidding a player from playing and a player being fully recovered.

    I think players like Kevin McHale were idiots for playing through injuries. It ruined his career and he walks with a limp today. Thats a reckless short sided attitude which I'm glad Rose and Oden don't share.

    Oden? lol

    Yeah, Greg Oden has been playing it extra careful, right? It's been, what, three years since he played last? He's making extra sure.

    Well if Oden tried to play through them he'd probably be in a wheelchair or bed ridden.

    Greg Oden is moving closer to playing in an actual game and could even do so briefly in the preseason.

    Oden hasn't played since December of 2009.

    "I tell people all the time, for me, I'm just happy to be able to step on the floor and just play, even just work out," said Oden. "And now, to be on the NBA schedule, that's just one more step closer to getting back out there and playing."

    Erik Spoelstra said the Miami Heat brought Oden on the road with them to allow him to re-acclimate.

    "Every part of it, we want him to feel that he's involved and a part of the team," Spoelstra said. "So even in the workouts where he hasn't been involved, he's doing pre-practice. He's watching film with our staff. He's out there for every practice. He travels with us.

    "He's doing more and more each week. He loves being around the group. It would be very frustrating for any NBA player to be out for multiple years."

    Poor Kid. Not literally poor, but it must be a real drag not being able to play.

    If he breaks his leg again.... I would be seriously concerned about his mental health.

    They are really going to have to limit his playing time.
