27 year old Greg Oden had 23 points and 14 rebounds in his CBA debut with the Jiangsu Dragons. It was the first 20 & 10 game for the former #1 pick since November 23rd of 2009!
Oden’s team did lose against the Yao Ming owned Shanghai Sharks but having a standout performance in his first game with his new team has to feel like a big win for him and his confidence.
A lot of former NBA players have found great success overseas – look no further than Stephon Marbury and his God like status in China – so hopefully Oden can stay healthy and become the next on that list of players to find basketball redemption after their NBA career.
