Greg Oden Apologizes for Nude Photos: Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden has publicly apologized after nude photos of him popped up on the web. "I would like to apologize to everybody: Portland, the fans, the organization," Oden told reporters. "It was very embarrassing." The nude photos (NSFW), published on WorldStarHipHop, are cell phone self-portraits of Oden displaying why he can never wear John Stockton shorts.

I saw three before closing the window... why in God's name did I click that link?

Reminds me of the scene in Whip It where Juno makes Maeby barf: "Have you ever thought about your parents making love? Your dad's naked body... his balls jiggling... sweaty..."

I feel obligated to mention the deadspin thread. If for no other reason than to point out all of the great jokes have already been made.

Killjoy!

There's no way I'm reading through 20 pages of deadspin comments on my Blackberry, so I'm just gonna say: At least it wasn't the Vanilla Gorilla Pryzbilla.

Is Greg Oden the new Robert Mapplethorpe?

yerfatma's link to Deadspin is NSFW, for those who might otherwise be inclined to check in on the jokes.

One question posed on DeadSpin:

How come it's always male athletes leaking pictures of their dongs on the internet?

I just don't know what to say about that.

Not nearly enough in the way of chains, straps and piercings.

For goodness sake, don't let Eva Longoria and her fellow hoops-savvy Desperadas see those pix. It could cause a commotion.

Eva might want to trade up. Her man's only 6 foot 2.

Yes.

Kidding aside, most of the time Deadspin will not post NSFW content to its front page, but only "after the jump" (i.e., after you click through to read more). yerfatma's page happens to link to the full "after the jump" posting. Where it ends up is not a problem for me, but may be for some.

I don't think it's nice to make fun of a guy's injured leg. It's just in poor taste is all. Oden was producing at a high rate when on the floor and...

Wait.

Holy shit.

...am I still allowed to call myself a man?

Oops. Apologies. Anyways, I don't see what the big deal is.

He's a shower, not a grower.

You know, that doesn't seem like something you'd have to apologise for unless you'd put out an eye with it.

Which could be a distinct possibility.

If my member looked like Greg Odens, I wouldn't own pants.

"They was right, baby"

Ya know, tommytrump posted a link a few days ago about a blind skier making the Canadian team, and it got 1 comment. Greg Oden pulls out his schlong, and it's already got 17 (now 18). What's that say about us?

Quoth "MeatSaber". Heh.

That this story is alot funnier than some blind skier (which was a great story) but we enjoy laughing more.

If Greg Oden was blind, he would already have a cane to use.

There was a story about a blind skier? I didn't see it.

And that the NBA is filled with a bunch of dicks isn't exactly news.

I know. I know...just stirrin the pot...

and Ufez, the irony was not lost on me... =D

Sometimes the best articles attract the fewest comments.
