That's not that surprising. No way Durant would have stayed after an year like this one.

Not that surprising. I thought he needed another year, but I expected this.

Until Oden declares, he's got the #1 pick locked up.

well i expected him to leave cus he already did what he can do in the ncaa. he probaly could of gotten way better before he took the next level. but we will never know now.
but oden schould stay cus he really doesent have a prooven offense game. he can play offence, but imagine how nasty it would be if he stayed.

Tough decision when you're going to be one of the top 2 picks

can bill walker come out? i dont understand him.
cus right now isnt he in high school.
the rule is that you have to be out of high school for one year, so you cant get left back and be 19 when you come out of high school

Billy Walker was with K-State this year and he got hurt. He is a year removed from school, thus he could enter

Am I misreading this or are you calling Noah the 3rd best player in this class?

He may be the 3rd best player coming off that Florida team

he d be stupid if he joined, but then in k-state its looking pretty ugly there with the huggings thing. beasley will prob stay in k-state though . so you might expect it

I think he'll stay; he has nothing to gain by coming out and him and Beasley together should be fun to watch

It's only a rumour, but he has a press conference scheduled where he will say his decision.

He has officially declared and has already signed a $20 million shoe deal.

This shouldn't even be news. This is like before Adrian Peterson had declared, and people were starting to think he was actually going to stay.

Good move, because I dont see a way they can get the championship in Texas. However, I think Oden should stay.

What was Lebrons, 99 Million?

ALSO Julian Wright has declared!!!

Time for everyone to sit and speculate about Oden now, even though there's no reason to. Oden is leaving too, make no doubt about it.

LeBron James signed a 90 million dollar with Nike out of high school I believe.

I also believe Mike Conley Jr. is going to declare as well. He was the most impressive player on the Ohio State team during their run to the championship game, usually that leads to a player going pro. I think he compares a lot to TJ Ford coming out, not quite as quick but better size.

Also I cant believe someone considered Bill Walker a top 5 pick. I think Walker will barely be a lottery pick when he declares. He has no NBA position, he doesnt have anywhere near the shot or handles to play the 2 & is way undersized for an NBA 3. He is a much less refined Desmon Mason at this point.

no he wont, he will stay, he needs to work on shooting.

im hoping oden comes back too, so OSU can win a championship. But i really doubt he will.

Yes he needs work on shooting & passing, but a lot of guys with a lot less skill, a lot less hype, & a lot less national exposure have gone to the NBA draft. Conley also hasnt played without Greg Oden on his team in like 7 years, I really think he is going pro.
