Durant vs. Oden....You Decide

The NBA draft lottery is upon us, which spurs debate over who will be drafted first i this year. It's obvious it will be either Kevin Durant or Greg Oden. To me you can't really go wrong with either.

On one hand you have a stump in the middle that can throw anyone that comes in the lane and scores recklessly on the block. On the other hand you have a athletic swing man that can play 4 positions and shoot from anyone on the court with ease.

I would take Oden simply because he has proven his poise in big games. In the title game against Florida, he was 10 for 15 from the floor with 25 points. I believe he will have more of a immediate impact than Durant.

Greg Oden and Kevin Durant aside, I can't wait to see what Acie Law does in the NBA. The guy is a stone cold killer.

Here's to hoping Acie Law ends up on a decent team in need of a good point guard. He's projected to go somewhere from late lottery to the mid first round.

Personally I'd take Oden. He reminds me of Tim Duncan with more size. Of course, that taking nothing away from Durant. Durant is going to make highlight reels. I don't think you can go wrong by drafting either of them first. Of course, how many teams have a dominant enough big man to justify passing Oden? None. Not even the San Antonio Spurs.
