When will they throw in the towel on Greg Oden or are they going to continue to let him get beat like Pacquiao did Margarito?

I will never tell an athlete when they should retire, but the writing is on the wall.

Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden will have arthroscopic surgery to “remove debris” from his left knee.

The Blazers say the former No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft was to have the surgery Monday in Vail, Colo.

The often-injured 7-footer had the same surgery on his right knee earlier this month.

*UPDATE*

Oden was suppose to just get a scope, but turned into a microfracture surgery.

“Initially, Greg was undergoing a procedure similar to the one he had a couple of weeks ago to have debris cleared from his right knee,” said Acting General Manager Chad Buchanan . “However, once the doctors were inside Greg’s left knee, they unfortunately found articular surface damage and determined microfracture was necessary.”

Oden is done for the season.
