I want him to stay but only so Boston and Milwaukee can't get him. I don't give a damn about Oden or OSU. I don't want him coming to an East team and solidifying them as a contender in the conference for the next few years (since I'm a Raptors fan).
If Oden does come out, I hope Memphis or Seattle get him so he's in relative obscurity.
Oden and Durant to Memphis and Seattle... that would be perfect.
The West is strong enough already. The Leastern Conference needs someone to play against Shaq. Wooo, can't wait for that.
If he goes I hope it's because he wants to go and isn't being sold on it by outside influeces... he would only improve with another year, his stamina needs works still and he could add some more to his post game, he doesn't have any moves that are gonna surprise anyone as yet... that being said asking him to stay is a bit like asking someone not to cash that winning lottery ticket...
he has nothing to prove in college, i want to see him in the L
Neither does Julian Wright, but getting a degree means something to him so he's staying in college. Don't underestimate power of education. I personally think Oden will leave after tonight's performance, but certainly he has a lot to prove outside of the basketball court in college.
