    37 points, 23 rebounds tonight at Texas Tech.

    a) Would you take him over Greg oden in the draft if you were Boston, Philly, or Memphis?

    b) Who does he compare to? McGrady?

    c) Where does he rank in NCAA history in terms of freshman awesomeness?

    d) Can he do some damage in the NCAA tournament?

    Stats if you want to see them ...

    He is the best player in College Basketball to bad for him the NBA blocked him because he could be pulling in some real cash.

    Dude needs to eat. He won't do much in the pros until he bulks up.

    Who wants to list all the skinny, successful NBA players?

    This guy Jordan was pretty frail when he entered the league. He was decent out of the gate.

    Sure, Durant could use some lbs, but he'll be playing the three, and with his long arms, he'll be fine.
  6. that was an astounding second half

    Durant will be a great NBA player in a few years, but take him No. 1 over Oden? No way.

    mj was not "frail" when he was at UNC, nor when he entered the league.

    durant is definitely talented and he is long. my main concern with him is his narrow shoulders. i don't know many star nba players whose shoulders/frame were so narrow. he has jonathan bender's physique, and that's scary. sure, he's away more talented than bender, but still.

    other than that, he certainly appears good. i'd like to see him get to the line more and make his free throws. after all, he needed 29 shots to score 37. and it's not like tech has any real size or athletic ability.

    his shooting touch is what i think is most impressive. for a guy so long, he can really shoot.

    If every college player made himself eligible for the next draft:
    1. Kevin Durant
    2. Greg Oden
    3. Brandan Wright

  11. Assuming his wrist heals properly, I agree.

    Oden, because he's 7 feet tall.
