Big things were expected for Greg Oden when he was selected as the first overall pick in the 2007 draft.
The Portland Trail Blazers grabbed themselves a seven-footer from Ohio State that was a shot-blocking machine.
The center averaged 15.7 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.3 blocks in college and was touted above the likes of Kevin Durant, Al Horford, Mike Conley and Joakim Noah.
However, despite spending time in Portland and Miami, injuries robbed the pivot of showing the NBA what he can truly do.
Speaking to Outside the Lines, Oden made a bold claim about his legacy.
"I'll be remembered as the biggest bust in NBA history," Oden said. "But I can't do nothing about that."
At just 28-years-old, is a comeback firmly out of the question?
"Don't get me wrong," Oden said. "If I was healthy, I would love to continue playing, but I'm not healthy."
When Oden could actually get on the court, he wasn't far from averaging a double-double. His label as a 'bust' is a bit strong, but his career is unfairly heralded in due to his health, or lack thereof.
A fine and dandy Anthony Bennett, the 2013 number one pick and currently with the Brooklyn Nets, would run him close for the 'biggest bust' title.
