Foul Debut for Oden

You know all about the performance of No. 2 pick Kevin Durant today (actually yesterday, if I check my clock). How about No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden? Well, the 10 fouls the NBA Summer League weren't enough for Oden, who fouled out with six points and two blocks.

Good news today: It turns out the Blazers were mistaken when they previously thought Oden would have to miss next Sunday's showdown with the Sonics and Durant to attend the ESPYs. The ESPYs air on July 15 but will be taped on Thursday.
