I'm really liking the look of Oden in this game.

People say that more because of the ****ty team and ****ty city... people rub it in OKC's face, not Durant's.

That and a lot of people's opinions of Durant seem to be centered around Oden comparisons, which I think is stupid. They're entirely different types of players, and I think a lot of Durant fans kind of gloss that over.

Durant's a great player though. I think people want to see what he'd do when he's put in a position to win.

I've been saying it for the past few games. When Oden gets the ball early, and they feed him, he gets his head in the game. Which makes sense, no one plays with energy when their teammates overlook them.

Greg Oden is putting up these grood numbers in limited minutes.

Rudy's stroke is so nice, I'm really surprised he doesn't shoot a high percentage from 3. The way his shot is, and with some work, I think this guy can become a 50% 3 point shooter. Which is why I don't mind when he shoots the 3 ball.

he just made a believer out of me. he's 4 for 13 from the floor, and he's got 17 points. when his jumper was off, he was in attack mode, doing his damage at the free throw line. then the jumper kicks in, and he starts playing over the top of screens. the kid definitely 'gets it'. once he's more consistent...

the D is already there. he's going to be a monster two-way player. still not sure he's a PG, but he's obviously less raw as a PG than Bayless, so that's not an issue. he'll be a fully capable combo guard at the very least.

blazers look like a lotto team right now. not much continuity. two good runs, the rest has been hot and cold other than Roy.

I hope the Blazers don't get too relaxed with this lead.
