Portland should've gotten Kevin Durant

With the first pick in the 2007 NBA Draft Lottery, the Portland Trailblazers took Greg Oden from Ohio State University. Only time will tell if they made the right decision.

Greg Oden got injured during the off-season and is going to sit out until next summer. Now, we suddenly see LaMarcus Aldridge emerge as one of the top young big men in the NBA. With that, I think the Blazers should've gotten Kevin Durant instead of Greg Oden. Kevin Durant is putting up monster numbers in Seattle, a team which is very incomplete in terms of filling up their positions with the right people. If Kevin Durant was in Portland, he would be teaming with Aldridge and Brandon Roy. This becomes one of the most explosive young combos in the league. Add Channing Fry into the mix, and Portland may be a sure playoff team next season.

Yes, Greg Oden is a tremendous player, and I hope he proves me wrong when he comes back. As of the moment, I think the Blazers should've gone with Kevin Durant.

The correct choice in terms of talent, yes. but with the big improvement of Lamarcus Aldridge, i think they should've gotten Durant instead.
