    Default The Portland Trailblazers Will Select Kevin Durant In The NBA Draft

    I think that Portland Trailblazers will select Kevin Durant with the number one pick in the Two Thousand And Seven National Basketball Association Draft.

    The Portland Trailblazers don't really need Greg Oden as much as they need Kevin Durant. Yes, Martell Webster is good and Travis Outlaw, if they extend a qualifying offer to him, is decent, but placing Kevin Durant in that Portland Trailblazers lineup would be lethal.


    PG - Jarret Jack

    SG - Brandon Roy

    SF - Kevin Durant

    PF - Zach Randolph

    CT - LaMarcus Aldridge


    Most people are predicting that Greg Oden will be picked, but if Greg Oden is picked, people will be shaking their heads "Why did the Portland Trailblazers select Greg Oden when they already have LaMarcus Aldridge???" It's crazy.

    It's like the time when the Portland Trailblazers selected Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan. The reason why the Portland Trailblazers selected Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan is because the Portland Trailblazers already had Clyde Drexler, so it would've been redundant to sign Michael Jordan.

    The Portland Trailblazers will probably select Kevin Durant.

    I don't think this will happen, not a chance. And no, this isn't a "need over talent" pick. Portland already has a solid frontcourt and yet Oden is still the consensus choice based on his talent and potential.


    But imagine if it did. What kind of "thank you" present from Seattle would be most appropriate for such a blunder?

    No they won't... Hakeem and Sampson ... Duncan and Robinson. Who says two big men can't play alongside?

    Aldridge is more of a PF anyway, and Oden is your standard traditional center type (pretty much to a tee).

    So that's really not an issue. The Blazers probably were going to deal Zach Randolph anyway, no.1 pick or not.

    youre saying they should take durant cuz they already have a big in aldridge by comparing it to selecting sam bowie ahead of jordan cuz they already had a sg in drexler?

    Since before the draft, I had the Blazers labeled as the only team that would consider drafting Durant before Oden but I never thought they would win it so I never really thought about it.

    But since the draft, I honestly think that theres a legit chance they will take Durant.

    I mean a lineup of

    Jack/Rodriguez
    Roy/Webster
    Durant
    Aldridge
    Randoph/Magloire

    is pretty intriguing. If Durant lives up to the hype, they could content in 2-3 seasons. And its going to be hard to trade Randoph, so why not keep him?

    They don't really have Jamaal Magloire. He's a free agent.

    Magloire is a free agent and Przybilla is irrelevant.

    I respectfully disagree with you. They already have a Center in LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Pryzbilla, and Raef LaFrentz. They're pretty weak in the Small Forward department, so choosing Kevin Durant would be a no brainer. Ummm...yeah.

    so why would u compare it to the sam bowie thing when they went for need. if you need a sf and u draft durant ahead of oden, youre drafting for need. yeah.

    and whenever u include joel pryzbilla and raef lafrentz in your reason for not drafting oden, u should get a 10 day ISH ban

    Because they didn't need Michael Jordan because the Portland Trailblazers already had Clyde Drexler, which is similar to what I'm saying. They already have LaMarcus Aldridge and their position of need is Small Foward, so they should select Kevin Durant. Ummm...yeah.
