Former number one overall pick Greg Oden won’t be playing professional hoops any time soon. “I wish. It’s over,” he says.
“I wouldn’t say I regret anything,” Oden told IndyStar Thursday in a phone interview. “I would say I just wish I did things better.”
Because if things had been done better, if luck had been on his side, if injuries hadn’t happened, he might not be restarting his life at the same place the dreams started.
“I’m like, 10 years later, I’m back in line,” Oden said. “I definitely feel like an old man.”
Oden, in addition to studying, is now helping his former college coach Thad Matta as a student-coach.
