With Greg Oden's most recent knee injury it's become apparent that he is an injury prone player.

Fans may argue that he's simply unlucky, unfortunate to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but knee injuries have a tendency to recur and he is showing that his body doesn't withstand them at the level needed to be a successful NBA player.

With the news that he will miss the rest of the season, the former number one pick will now have missed two thirds of all regular season games and all playoff games since being drafted.

Frankly, he doesn't put up fantastic stats even when he's healthy.

Let's look at how he stacks up to another famous Bust, Sam Bowie, through three years in the league.

First off they were both picked before superstars. Although Durant isn't quite there yet, he will be before too long. His scoring stats are a thing of legend already.

Oden: 82/246 games played (33 percent), 23 minutes, 11.1 points on 60 percent shooting, 8.5 rebounds, 2.3 blocks, 4 fouls

Bowie: 119/246 games played (48 percent), 29 minutes, 10.8 points on 51 percent shooting, 8.5 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, 3.7 fouls.
