First and formost I am 100% behind the pick Of Greg Oden over K. Durant. There has been alot of finger pointing and petty arguments over who the right pick was.
For one day lets take an opposite approach as to the player the Blazers picked and act like Durant was the Blazers pick. What would we be saying about Portlands future and what would Portland need to get themselves in the western conferance race.
I would be willing to bet that a center and point guard of the future would be in alot of trade discussions. Durant is good he put up 45 last night but why isnt Roy getting the ball more? We have to get better in the paint our rebounding is terrible. Whats up with the defense? I thought Nate was a defensive genious, Durant really needs to put some weight on our front line looks like tooth picks against other nba front lines. Durant needs to get his teammates more involved. The kid is going to take us to the promise land in a few more seasons. I hope KP gets a good lottery pick we really need to get the center of the future for this club. Why did we not make a trade for Chandler he would have been perfect for Portland.
These are just guess's as to what some of the comments would have been if the draft results would have been reversed.
Note: If your a Durant guy you need to reverse your thinking on the Durant vs Oden debate as well and become an Oden supporter and complain about why we did not take Oden.
