It's been a long time coming, but we can sort of say it now: Greg Oden is officially back in the game!

We all know what the guy's been through and, quite honestly, we're sick of feeling sorry for him. But none of that matters now. What matters is that today, after almost four seasons, Oden's finally made it back to to the court, in an NBA game. Even though it's only a preseason game and he only scored a single basket and he played for less than five minutes, this was big, big news. Check out the Miami big man's thunderous dunk over the Pelicans' Al Farouq Aminu:


"They kind of told me earlier today [that I would play]," he told reporters after the game. "I'm happy I'm able to walk off this court and play another day. My first shot was a dunk and I made it. I'm still getting it back, I've got a long way to go, but I'm happy to be out there."

We're so happy for you too, brother. We mean, do you have any idea how long it's been? How long we've been waiting for you to turn things around for the better? Did you know that the last time we saw you...
