Default If Greg Oden Wasnt Taken #1

Would Seattle Actually Take Him

That Would Mean:
Robert Swift(First Round Pick)
Johan Petro(First Round Pick)
Saer Sene(First Round Pick)
Chris Wilcox(A Young Beast)
Nick Collison(Very Good Power Foward)


Too Much!

Default Re: If Greg Oden Wasnt Taken #1

what kind of question is this?



because they have 3 project scrub centers and 2 good frontcourt guys they will pass on a possible franchise player?

It would mean one small step closer to the Nets getting him.

If he wasn't taken number 1, which he should. than seattle would have lots of bigs to trade, and in todays nba they'd be very valuable, so I'm sure they could get something out of any of those. Probably wouldn't see them trade collison or wilcox though

Dout it, Oden will slide like Brady Quinn, everyone has a elite center these days.

Of course. Greg Oden will not go second, let alone third. The other scrubs can be used as trading bait.

2 of those guys hardly play (Sene and Petro). Plus, Swift has been injured all-season, doubt he'll get back to full form - Even if they do have all those Centers? They're gonna pass on one of the projected dominant big men in the future? Ok.

Why do you mention "First Round Pick" as if that has any bearing on whether they'd draft Oden? If you're a GM and you really have second thoughts about taking Oden because of this, then you don't deserve to be a damn GM. Being a first rounder means squat.. there are more busts in the first round than there are good players. Good GM's know when to cut their losses...

Passing on a franchise player to draft a need will cripple your franchise. Bowie over Jordan ring a bell? Never draft on needs when there are two dynamite players named Oden and Durant in the draft... I don't care if you have Shaq, Duncan, and KG as your frontline. If Oden is there, you take him. PERIOD.

By far the stupidiest thing I've ever read here. And you know that tells a lot, because I've been posting here since March 2001.

You mean, you wouldn't take Shaq because you already have Joe Kleine, Danny Schayes and Mark West?

I personally think that this thread is a joke because a rational human being can't be this stupid, but you were serious, you need some professional help.
