I was listening to Wheels at Work the other day. Wheels and Kenny were talking about were talking about potential trades and the pieces it would involve Portland giving up.
One thing in the conversation that to me was shocking was that both Wheeler and Kenny said they would be more willing to trade Batum then they would Greg Oden. IMO thats shocking. Now, Im one of those guys who honked twice for Durant, so to say the least, I'm not a big believer in Oden.
But still, I cant wrap my mind around that one. To me, its not a difficult choice at this point. Oden hasnt proved he can stay healthy (mentally or physically) to be a consistant NBA player. The only arguement I might understand is "Big men are a much harder find than a good wing." True, but I dont see how that applies in this case seeings as Oden cant stay on the court.
So I'll ask you Blazers Edge.
Who'd you rather part with to get that big name PG, Batum or Oden?
