Greg Oden, as quoted in the latest Sports Illustrated (June 18th, 2007) “They Said It” on the topic of playing in Portland next year:
“I know it rains a lot. I know it’s close to LA., and I love that. I want to go to L.A. and go to the beach.”
You can tell he said this thinking, "yeah chicks in bikinis man, that's what I'm all about."
- Distance from Portland to LA: 964 miles.
- Distance from Columbus, Ohio to Daytona Beach, FL: 897 miles.
For all of our European readers, that's further than the distance from Paris to Rome!
