He is a great player but can

He is a great player but can not stay healthy. He is a bust but he just needs to stay healthy and then he will be ok.

oden

oden is bust cause look at number two pick KD whos gonna be top 3 player in next decade....i have nothing against him but just taking him before KD makes him bust........ same thing happened in 84 Bowie in front of Jordan.....Portland also.... i think they make some mistakes that cost them to be on of the best franchise ever

arman that made no sense.

arman that made no sense. .just because a player picked behind you is playing better doesnt make you a bust. if that was the case the year ben wallace was drafted there were many bust. and brandon roys year and anyone who was drafted late first or second round that has done better then players drafted ahead of them. also Hakeem Olajuwon was also drafted ahead of jordan so is he a bust since they could have had jordan?

Is Andrew Bogut then a bust

Is Andrew Bogut then a bust because he was drafted ahead of Deron Williams and Chris Paul?? Greg Oden may or may not have a healthy productive career, but being drafted ahead of a great player shouldn't have any bearing on if a player is a bust. Bogut was drafted #1, took some time to develop was injured and played as few as 33 games one season, but has rebounded nicely and is averaging about 15 and 11 this season (now his 5th) and no one is calling him a bust because Chris Paul and Deron Williams are agruably the two best young point guards in the NBA were drafted after him. Oden had a ton of hype and made some vast improvement this season, he he keeps getting hurt and doesn't continue to develop then he is a bust but Durant being the #2 pick doesn't secure him as a bust, especially only 2 1/2 years after they were drafted and in Oden's 2nd season.

you didnt understand me

you didnt understand me,what i want to say is that they pass KD and that can mistake caunt haunt them in the future... and do you really believe that oden is going to be better than durant or that he is going to be top 10 players in nba one day ?

sam bowie being drafted

sam bowie being drafted ahead of jordan has no barring on him being a bust. his play does.

I don't think Oden will have

I don't think Oden will have the individual success and numbers Durant has, but, call me old school, but Oden could be a difference maker in a playoff or title run someday and a piece to a championship and a great compliment to Brandon Roy. Oden, before his injury, was a top 5 shot blocker in the league and averaging a close to a double double in limited minutes while shooting 60% from the feild and 75% from the line. Did Portland really need another 20+ ppg wing player? no, I think the pick made sense and shouldnt have any bearing on how Oden is perceived as a bust, It's up to Oden to stay healthy and continue to improve, not how great Durant becomes, Kobe was the 13th pick in his draft, people never talk about the 12 teams that passed on him.

i agree with you joewolf

i agree with you joewolf on bryant cause he was hs player, but durant was good as oden in college (college player of the year) so they could choose durant also but i uderstand why oden is picked 1. cause you always need bigman same thing in 84.... and when you look at durants numbers 30 ppg at 21.. thats scary

in hind site im sure the

in hind site im sure the blazers would have picked durant. doesnt matter if they needed another scorer or not. you dont pass up on melo,jordan,kobe,wade just because you already have roy. portland said the same thing when then passed up jordan. and det said something similar when they passed on melo. i dont mind the oden pikc if he stays healthy becaus ei think he will be a pretty good player. not as good as durant but good enough to where portland wont feel too bad about skipping on durant

Yeah, I hear you, Durant is

Yeah, I hear you, Durant is amazing so far in his career. He looks like he could be a 25,000 point guy if he stays healthy, but I guess im not ready to count out Oden yet, I honestly think he can still be a key building block on Portland's team. Neither one of his injuries, although they are disappointing, are career threatening or risk to cut back on his explosiveness, and Oden is a hard worker and has had some huge games this year before his injury and I agree with quincey when he said he'll be good enough and win them enough games for them not to be kicking themselves too much...i could be wrong, but only time will tell

Looks like my old account was right: Oden is a bust, Durant is king.

Yea

I don't post much, but looking back at this thread... I was wrong. Oden is a bust. Portland not extending his rookie contract put him in Kwame Brown territory. It's sad cause hes a great guy but he is a bust no matter what way you look at it. I hope he has a productive healthy rest of his career, but I'm not betting on it.
