    I hope people start realizing it cause everyone bashed me last year when he was in high school and I said he wasn't God, I still think he's an amazing prospect and would go in the top 3 picks next year but I just think it was so funny how everyone was calling him the greatest just by seeing some highlight reels. Like I said last year those same weaknesses are still there, his offensive game is raw at best and he gets pushed out of the way by bigger defenders just as guys in high school like Derrick Character owned him, Oden has potential to be a 15+12+3 guy in the NBA but right now he is far from it moreso in the scoring department, if he were in the NBA right now he would probably average around 4 points a game. All his scoring in high school was too easy for him and was mostly dunks on weaker kids.

    As for Durant I love him and he has sick potential I hate the Ak47 comparison because he is 100x better on offense and a way different style but isn't even close to Kirilenko on defense, he needs work in terms of bulking up but he has potential to be a real star, only problem is he has a smaller case Rudy G@yitis or Kwameitis in that he doesn't always play with that killer instinct.

      Durant is by far a better basketball player right now. Oden has more potential becasue of size down the road. But I do beleive Durant will be better by a lil

        IMO Durant has way more potential and is better right now, Oden is a bigger Emeka Okafor. I hate the David Robinson comparison Oden will never be a scorer like that.

          THe only way Durant becomes better is if he puts on weight and plays PF. At SF his skills are nothing more special than Rashard Lewis' skills. Thats still allstar potential but not a god like some of you are saying. A guy with PF height that would get ate up in the paint in the NBA. Durant is listed at 6'10 180. If thats true he needs to make it to atleast 235-240 before he ever even thinks about entering the paint. Too me Durant is a great prospect but not the best in the draft.

          Greg Oden on the other hand is one of those prospects that arent in the draft every year. Hes like the Lebron, Yao, or Dwight Howard. Someone I am just amazed with. The kid is played with his off hand most of his games so far even shooting FT's with it. He eats up the boards and stacks up crazy amounts of blocked shots. Of course hes raw but anyone in their first year of college is raw. Sure he doesnt have a huge skillset offensively but Dwight Howard didnt have a huge offensive skillset coming in the league. Hell he still dont. Greg Oden runs the court like no 7 fter ive ever seen. Amazing amazing prospect.


          In the last 2 drafts Durant would have been the number 1 pick without a doubt in my mind. But he should not be selected before Oden. I couldnt think of a team in the league who could use Durant more than Oden.

              I dont know which is your team but all 3 guys going before Noah are far and away better than him.

              IM guessing your a boston fan. Wright >>>>>>Noah.

                  Anyone who drafts Noah in the top 20 is making a mistake.

                    Yeah u posted before my edit i just said the same thing when I noticed he was from boston.


                    Wright is an animal like most prospects hes rail thin but i like the Kevin Garnett comparison.

                        why if you see him play (like i do may times) hes aggresive which helps him get to the baskett...he can shoot mid range even sometimes 3 pointers... great rebounder espically offencive ones...and shares the ball.

                        hes not as good as greg oden but hes definately a top 5 pick

                          I'd take him in the top 10 easy. Ghetto just has a huge grudge on him

                            Id take him top 10. I think a guy on his team is better than he is (Horford)

                                Oden.

                                Versatile Pfs are all the rage but...

                                1. They have a huge boom/bust factor
                                2. Too many elite PFs in the league (hence, tougher competition)

                                For Oden, there really aren't many great centers left... you have Shaq (who's aging), Yao Ming, D. Howard, Camby, and Amare (who is really a PF playing C).

                                Projected win total: 55+
