No one is going to argue the fact that NBA fans have had a small sampling size of Greg Oden. However, Ohio State fans have plenty of great memories of the 7-footer who led the Buckeyes to the 2007 National Championship Game on his way to being named a first-team All-American.
Prior to Wednesday night, Oden had not scored a single point in an NBA game since December 2009.
Well, good news Buckeyes fans — The streak is over!
Oden tallied in six points and grabbed two rebounds in eight minutes of action Wednesday night. Four of those six points came on dunks, including this thunderous two-handed slam, Oden’s first points in over five years.
Look familiar, Buckeye fans?
A few other Buckeyes had big nights Wednesday, too.
