Too Much!

Why do you mention "First Round Pick" as if that has any bearing on whether they'd draft Oden? If you're a GM and you really have second thoughts about taking Oden because of this, then you don't deserve to be a damn GM. Being a first rounder means squat.. there are more busts in the first round than there are good players. Good GM's know when to cut their losses...

Passing on a franchise player to draft a need will cripple your franchise. Bowie over Jordan ring a bell? Never draft on needs when there are two dynamite players named Oden and Durant in the draft... I don't care if you have Shaq, Duncan, and KG as your frontline. If Oden is there, you take him. PERIOD.
