Last night I finally got to see the big man, Greg Oden, in person. He is truly a man among boys. He didn't have his best game, and for some reason he was not only wearing a brace on his left hand, but also had his right hand taped up, but he still dominated, scoring 18 and altering numerous shots.
The player that continues to amaze me though is Mike Conley. I'd only seen him play once when he was in high school and I figured he was just a throw-in to land Oden. He is most certainly not. In fact, I think he might be as a freshman one of the top five, or at least top ten, point guards in the country. He can simply take anyone off the dribble and he finishes.
