Big time Durant fan here. If I was a team with #1 pick, he'd be my guy

Oden is a unique prospect that does not come along very often. As talented as durant is, his game is not as stand outish. I'll take Oden. i like his running mate Dequan Cook though. He's my guy. Hope sixers pick him up in a later pick.

Whose shoes sell?

Jordan, Pippen(always wanted a pair, never got 'em), Kobe, TMac, Iverson, LeBron.

I doubt anyone could even tell you what Duncan's or KG's shoes look like!

i sure remember a lot of shaq products.

From when? 1995?

Michael Jordan went from having his own shoe to having his own Nike sub-brand that alone could probably sell for a billion.

Shaq went from having his own shoe (whole damn line of sh!t, actually) to wearing Li-Nings.

And why aren't they in their own shoe commercials anymore? Being in an ensemble commercial with Chauncey Billups (Does anybody give a rat's ass about Chauncey Billups?) and TMac (coughwashedupcough) isn't saying a whole lot. Even Gilbert Arenas has his own commercial now.

The closest thing to a big man that people liked as a shoe pitchman was Barkley. And he was 6'6".

Honestly is a tough call based solely on skill and potential. I have to go with Oden though simply cause finding a quality center is almost impossible now.

I hope that I am the first to say this, but im probably not...but:Kevin Durant will be a bust. The kid has a great jumper for a guy his height, but he is very clumsy, doesnt go into the post enough, and takes too many long jumpers. He will probably average around 15 points, 6 or 7 rebounds in the NBA, but he isnt going to be the superstar you guys want him to be until he bulks up, and starts getting physical.

Seems to be a rebirth these days with Dwight Howard, Yao Ming, Amare Stoudemire, and soon Greg Oden. Four of the leagues brightest young players are centers.

I'm not too high on him either, I just think he'll be a slightly better version of Rashad Lewis

The better version of a player that averages 22/7 with 49%FG / 40%3FG / 90%FT?

Slightly better then that is a star player for sure. . .

Sure, but that's nowhere near what Oden should be

To me he looks like the most NBA ready freshman I can remember.

I guess you don't watch much college basketball cause Carmelo was more ready.

15/6or7 is far from a bust. And he won't be a bust.

If both Oden, and Durant come out they are both locked 1+2 Noah is so overrated it's not even funny awful.
