does he have a shot?

Durant > Bagainni

Im with ya. Hes got an amazing set of offensive tools, complete offensive game, and so much upside. In an era when perimeter players dominate the league...hes gonna fit right in.

And that last comparison is so much lobsided in Durant's favor, its not even funny

As a Bulls fan I feel great since I dont think we need to win the lottery(well...knicks dont) for us to get a #1 pick level player. Durant or Oden would be amazing. Watch we get like #3 or something.....

Around the rim he's really good but needs work on the mid-range game.

Which one would you prefer blaze? Oden/Wallace would be sick but Durant would be the go-to guy you guys need at times..and the dude is only going to add on to his already complete offensive game

37 and 23, just caught the last 2 plays but they seemed to epitomize the type of night he had. He came down, hit some bum with a little dribble move and long pullup jumper then gets the steal and the alleyoop on the 2 on 1 break.

I'm still trying to figure out what the big deal is with Brandan Wright that has people talking about him as the #3 pick.

Bulls have almost no chance at a top 2 pick. If the Knicks finish 20th overall like they are on track to, the Bulls odds are around 2%.

Size, youth, stats (albeit on a loaded team) and who else is going to go there?

I'm still wondering what the big deal about Julian Wright is? Granted I saw more of him last year than this year so far but still, not too impressed.

Right now he's definately better than Oden, however, no way I pass over Oden for him. Unless Im pretty much set with big men. And I think the only team that is in the running for him that can say that is Charlotte.

I do wonder what's going to be Duran'ts strengths in the league. He desperately needs to work on his body and strength.

I would take Al Horford over Brandon Wright in a heartbeat

I would not use the word desperately bc he handles his own for his size. He should probably look something in between KG and Tmac.

Durant is a going to be special player, i would even say an all star in his second year. I just havent seen anything from Oden to tell me he will be GREAT. I havent seen one flash, not one move or even attempted move. His post game looks like Deke's(his body movements).
