Excuse me while I digress for a moment away from the excitement our Pistons are generating for a moment. I am eagerly awaiting the basketball season like everyone else, especially since I live in the DC area and totally dislike both the Wiz and the `Skins. I saw some extended highlights of Greg Oden from the Blazers pre-season opener last night and all I can say is - look out NBA!! The guy, if he stays healthy is a beast!! They should just give him the Rookie of The Year trophy now and get it over with, not to mention Portland will definitely be a playoff team. Any thoughts???
