Oden. Mostly because of his broken hand, though.

yeah oden by far, durant should go nba and oden should stay until he gets some more desire for the game b/c oden acts like he doesnt care. :banana:

Oden, simply because big men take longer to develop. Durant is NBA-ready right now and won't improve under the tutelage of Rick Barnes. Just won't happen. There's nothing more for the college game to offer him.

But for those who think Oden's offensive game is raw, compare his numbers and skills as a freshman- even BEFORE you consider that he played most of it without full use of his dominant hand- to what David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Shaquille O'Neal, Alonzo Mourning, Akeem Olajuwon or Patrick Ewing did as freshmen offensively.

Oden is at or ahead of the curve compared to pretty much all of them with his offensive game at this stage of his career.

Game is right, Rick Barnes is really...just not a good coach.

Ok thanks everybody. I haven't seen Durant play this year and that is why I was wondering this.
