15 Thoughts vs. Kevin Durant 2/6

I could sit here and talk about tonight’s match-up as if it were just another game on the road against another Western Conference opponent, but we all know the truth here.  This game is all about Kevin Durant and Greg Oden; as will next week’s here in Portland.  We’ll all sit back tonight watching Kevin Durant blast Portland for 30+ and 8-9 rebounds, see how far he’s come as a pro, and then start to realize that I was right all along when I said “draft Kevin Durant.”  (And I’m pretty sure another well known Blazers blogger said the same thing.)  Greg will be sitting on the bench after hacking the D-Leaguers from the Thunder while KD proves his perennial All-Star-level play is growing exponentially and those reminders of that “lockdown SF” we need so badly will be laid out in front of our faces.  A line up of Roy, Aldridge and Durant together?  Oh….my…

“15 Thoughts” today are all about the Durant vs. Oden comparison.

1.  Gavin on MSP calling Kevin Durant a future Hall of Famer.  +1 Durant
2.  Watching Durant go for at least 25 and 10 in 4 of his last 7.  +1 Durant
3.  Durant’s 2008-09 stat line:  25.1 PPG 6.7 RPG 2.8 APG.  +1 Durant
4.  Durant’s knees.  +1 Durant
5.  Durant’s wrist.  +1 Durant
6.  Durant’s feet.  +1 Durant
7.  Oden’s pouty face.  -1 Oden
8.  Durant actually loving the game of basketball.  +1 Durant
9.  Oh, and Kevin is only 20 years old.  +1 Durant
10.  Oden fouls on the year = 161.  Durant fouls on the year = 83.  +1 Durant
11.  Kevin NOT swinging his feet out on every dunk.  +1 Durant
12.  Kevin knowing what his left hand looks like.  +1 Durant
13.  Kevin Durant’s game log is seriously mesmerizing.  +1 Durant
14.  Oden’s is not.  +1 Durant
15.  Still having faith in Kevin Pritchard’s decision.  +1 Oden

Oden's PER being better than Durant' rookie PER: +1 Oden

Oden's defensive potential and the Blazers needing D WAY more than O: +1 Oden

Oden is only 20 in basketball years: +1 Oden

Durant is definitely ahead, don't get me wrong, but its not as bad as you make it sound.

Was just a huge KD supporter. :P

They'll both be outstanding pros for sure, I've just never been into big guys. And I don't like to think of "potential" or "if" when Kevin Durant, we know, already has "it".

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
