If he can't beat tonsils, how can he ever beat the Spurs? This guy is D-O-N-E.

Who has their tonsils out in their 30s?

Seriously though, I'm 29, and I still refuse to have my tonsils removed. They're pretty bad, too.

Whew - that's somewhat of a relief. I thought he had committed enough fouls to make him ineligible for the rest of the Summer League.

At the rate he was going, he was gonna foul out for the whole NBA 2007-08 season.

Speculation is that even though he won't attend any more of the summer league games, he'll likely foul out of all of them.

I'm 55 and still have mine. There have been varying thoughts regarding tonsils through the years. When I was a child, most kids had their tonsils removed at the first sign of problems... tonsilitis or chronic bronchitis.

The first problem I ever had was when I was in college, and the thought then was to keep tonsils if at all possible.

When I was in my late 30s and had a couple of bouts of tonsilitis I was told that removing them at that age could be a trivial procedure, or it could put me out of commision for 5-6 weeks... they had no way of knowing.

But what the heck... I guess Oden had a little more than a sinus infection going on, huh?

I had mine out when I was 6 or 7.

poor guy washed up already... injury prone for sure... wonder if they'll trade him for hulk :)

Awhh, I've had my tonsils removed.

But that's disappointing, #1 pick being out of the summer league and all.
