Greg Oden Spikes Volleyball, Hits Woman In The Face (Video)

Miami Heat center Greg Oden wasn’t good enough to play basketball with the ‘big dogs’ in the NBA Finals, but he figured he could dominate in volleyball playing with a bunch of civilians. Good idea Greg! Not! Photo Credit: gregoden/Facebook For some reason, Greg Oden playing volleyball reminded us of this movie clip in ‘Meet the Parents.’ SMH!

Watch: Greg Oden Spikes Volleyball in Woman’s Face

When Greg Oden plays volleyball, he doesn’t even need to jump to dominate the net and anyone around it. One poor young woman found that out the hard way, as Oden spiked the ball right in her face. She put forth a valiant effort, though, attempting to block his powerful hit. But he wasn’t having it. She took it well—bouncing right back without a complaint and quickly readied...

WATCH: Greg Oden spikes volleyball in girl's face

Oden seems like a genuinely fun loving guy to hang around with. Even though he is tall, he is very comfortable in his own skin. He is like a fun Andrew Bynum (sadly they share the same knee issues). Here is Oden out playing volleyball with some friends or random strangers he just met. He shows no mercy to the poor girl trying to block his spike. Not quite fair to have a 7-footer...

What's next for the Miami Heat?

2-3 In The FinalsHere's the problem with winning: it's never enough. Win once, can you repeat? If not, it was a fluke. Win twice, well, the threepeat is the true definition of a great team. Win three, everyone hates you and thinks you're old and yada, yada, yada. And so it goes for history's least-loved great team, the Miami Heat, who have been to four straight Finals...

Although having a “Big Three” can be great, there are downfalls. It often drains a team’s salary cap, and makes it tough to put together a strong supporting cast. Veterans will often be willing to take less money to go to a winning team, but finding the right guys at a cheap price is a challenge. This offseason, the Miami Heat added Greg Oden and Michael Beasley. They weren’t...
