Sixers & Grizz face off in the Geg Oden Sweepstakes 2nite

He's big ... 7 feet 280 pounds.Ohio State freshmen, Greg Oden could be the most coveted draft pick in years. Tonite the Sixers take on the Memphis Grizzles in a battle for 1st place in the NBA lottery and a chance to draft Oden. There is still some question whether he will indeed turn pro. But dreams are all we can hold onto our winter wasteland of sports ineptitude. If they play like they did Monday the Sixers (10-28) will pull into a dead heat with the Grizzles (9-30).
Oden is no Shawn Bradley. He's everyones consensus #1 draft pick. The next Tim Duncan. How sweet would that be. It's a little early to be thinking about this with 44 games to go. But I'm not the only one thinkin' 'bout the draft. Watch teams start tankin' with 20 game left.

I know Greg Oden has been getting a lot of hype, but I could see the 76ers going in a number of directions, and still coming out in good shape.
