Default Durant on Oden "I almost drew a tear"

An article from December but just saw it now, thought it was cool that he showed support like that.



http://blog.newsok.com/thunderrumbli...t-drew-a-tear/

Quote:
“Once I heard he was having surgery, to be honest with you I almost drew a tear for him,” said Durant, who became the no-brainer No. 2 pick behind Oden in one of the most highly-debated decisions in the draft’s history.

“It’s unfair to him because people don’t know how hard he works every day,” Durant said. “But they’re already ready to tear him down. That’s life I guess. But he works hard every day and he does his job every day and people don’t give him credit for that.”

Despite their differing levels of individual success, Durant humbly credited the Blazers’ team success and said he doesn’t think Oden should have to worry about living in his shadow as a player.

“Those guys are a playoff team and are one of the top teams in the West,” Durant said. “Without him they wouldn’t be there. So I guess I’m living in his shadow. He was the No. 1 pick. I was the No. 2. And his team is doing better. I’m just trying to fight toward that with my team. So I wouldn’t say he’s in my shadow.”

Durant said he believes Oden will bounce back from this injury much like he did when recovering from the microfracture surgery that caused him to miss the entire 2007-08 season.

“The last injury he came back and was stronger,” Durant said. “He was playing well, and I know for a fact that if everything works out and his knee gets better and he continues to rehab and everything he’s going to come back better. He’s going to come back with a chip on his shoulder and he’s going to be tough on a lot of defenders.”

Durant reached out to Oden via text message earlier this week and told the Blazers’ big man to keep his head up. Durant let Oden know that he was praying for him. Durant remembered how he was forced to miss seven games last year with a sprained ankle and called the experience, “one of the toughest times of my life.”

“I can’t imagine how it is with him missing the rest of the season, and he did that twice,” Durant said. “It’s tough to go through for a person that loves the game so much.

“The best thing I can do, the only thing I can do, is pray for him and that’s what I told him.”

The real funny part is that if they drafted him at number 1 instead of Oden the Blazers would be a contender now... and that's a fact. Who cares about ball domination? You're saying that Durant instead of Batum or Outlaw isn't a huge upgrade? They'd figure it out. They are both smart, non-egotistical players.

It was an epic failure to draft Oden at 1 and everyone knows it. Oden was a prospect, at best, and seeing Durant, even in college, you saw how easily the game came to him.

Very interesting interview. Durant is a consumate professional when speaking to the media and/or a great human being who appreciates a lot Oden.

I don't think this thread should be about who's better, or how anyone can look like a genius when talking in retrospective. That doesn't seems like the topic to me, but whatever.

I can't help but imagine if Oden had panned out already as he was expected to. Him and Durant would have had a great rivalry, and they both seem to have nice personalities.

He does indeed. Based on what he says in the media he's an extremely nice guy. But if the past few years have taught us anything, it's that the "nice guys" can really surprise you.

Honestly, when I first saw this thread, I thought that KD was gonna make a crack about the nude pics...

Well, anyway, so is Oden like Bynum now? Just one more injury to his knee and it could all be over?

Sometimes is just about all the fame and glamours around the guys,
Sometimes is just the media, who creates problems around them..

But i'm a Portland fan, and i support Oden .. but Durant is my "chosen one"

It's easy to like Durant. Even more so with comments like these.

The league is lucky to have a Kevin Durant in it's midst.
