Playing the Field: Greg Oden and Lil’ Snoop

3rd Annual Cartoon Network's "Hall Of Game" Awards - Show
Bring your green hat to the UCLA sideline, if and when Lil’ Snoop gets there!

The last we saw Greg Oden he was partying with college kids in Ohio.

Unfortunately, unlike Vince Young, Oden prefers to party with his shirt on, so we’re not quite sure how in shape he is. However, it doesn’t appear to matter.

The former No. 1 overall pick is drawing interest from four different NBA teams, according to his agent. Among them are such powerhouses as the Heat and Spurs. Not bad for a guy who has played in just 82 career games, with a 9.4 points per game average.

Oden is a less successful version of Andrew Bynum — still only 25 with balky knees and a reputation for off-the-court shenanigans. The difference between Oden and Bynum is the price tag. While the Sixers are on the hook for almost $16 million this season, the Heat would only have to shell out around $900,000 for Oden, chump change for the Heat, which could probably squeeze that much out of LeBron’s couch cushions.

Here’s one strong vote for Oden to Miami. In fact, let’s bring Sam Bowie in as an assistant coach to bring everything full circle. Question, if the Heat win a championship with Bowie and Oden on the roster, does that push LeBron ahead of Jordan?

Football was the case that they gave him

Our love affair with hip hop has been well-documented in this space, so imagine our immense glee when we learned that Snoop Dogg’s son is moving up the high school football recruiting ranks faster than a track off “Doggystyle.”

Cordell Broadus, also known as Lil’ Snoop, is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound wide receiver who just completed his sophomore year at Diamond Bar (California) High. He’s already flirting with the likes of UCLA, Washington and Florida State.

“Being my kid, and walking in my shadows, that’s something you can’t run from, Cordell knows that,” the Doggfather told MaxPreps.

Needless to say, the younger Broadus has a sick highlight reel making the internet rounds. We can’t wait for Snoop and Dre to get in the studio to remix it.
