Durant steps up to the second round

Oklahoma City finished off Denver in the pro hoops tournament tonight. The Guy the Blazers Could Have Drafted has led his team to the next level, where they'll meet either the Spurs or Memphis. The Thunder's prospects in that series look mighty good.

If Perkins can stay healthy, he might be the diff they needed since no one else is looking that strong. I guess I can stop pushing my favorites, the Magic.

What's kind of weird about all of the hype around Oden vs. Durant back when was that Durant was billed as a "sure thing" because of his tireless work ethic, competitive drive and perfect health. It was almost like the Blazers passed up on a guaranteed All Star because they thought Oden would be some sort of nuclear bomb that they could drop on the rest of the league. Oden is a great guy, don't get me wrong, but his knees are horrible. The Blazers had access to the radiology studies when they drafted him, and they should have known better. All we can hope for now is that it all works out for the best in the long haul, but I'm not holding my breath.

Portland needed a post player back then and Oden was a good fit IF he stayed healthy. Aldridge was what they had and probably thought Durant between LA and Roy would cause some tension.

I agreed they rolled the dice, but sometimes you win and sometimes not.
