Pops 1 - Oden 0

Pops Mensah-Bonsu's Mavericks summer league team played against Greg Oden's Blazers, and Pops dunked on the supposed phenom, as this photo attests. To be fair, the 35-year old rookie also dunked on Pops. The game film also shows the dunk, and at the very beginning Pops beats Oden for a rebound and gets a plus one in the process.

Stats-wise, Pops scored 10 and collected 13 rebounds, while Oden scored 13 and collected 5 caroms, as well as 9 fouls (obviously players can get more in the summer league). And former Pops foe Josh McRoberts got 0 points in 13 minutes. Way to go, big fella!
