Greg Oden has the biggest shoes to fill of anybody in this list. He has to live up to being the No. 1 overall draft pick, who was chosen over superstar scoring machine, Kevin Durant.
While Durant has already added a rookie of the year award, a scoring title, an All-Star berth, and an All-NBA first team selection to his credentials, Oden has yet to achieve anything except earning a reputation of being injury-prone.
He's played a combined 82 games in a total of three seasons and while it's not necessarily his fault that he gets injured so many times, something has to give.
Oden is entering the final year of his rookie contract and the Blazers have not decide to extend him an offer, feeling as though he may not be the future franchise center they were looking for.
If Oden doesn't stay healthy and play well this year then he may not even receive the qualifying offer from the Blazers, thus cutting him completely loose and allowing him to be an unrestricted free-agent.
And if the Blazers themselves don't see a reason to keep the former No. 1 draft pick, why would any other NBA team?
Greg Oden needs to realize that if he doesn't find a way to stay healthy and play up to par this season, he may very well end up being known as the second coming of the infamous Blazer "Sam Bowie."
And everyone knows who he was picked before...
