Big Man or the Next MJ?
I haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to this NBA draft thingamabob that seems to have the city in a tizzy, but I do read and trust a few sports columnists here and there, and King Kaufman’s column over at Salon today is all about Portland and who they should pick in the first choice of the draft. He makes some good analysis, I think, about the odds and chances of Oden and Durant living up to the hype and hopes of the NBA-watchers out there.
Rusty’ll have the lowdown when the actual decision is announced later today, but the wild speculation and pronouncements before the deal is done is a pretty fun thing to watch.
And of course, there’s the “grass is always greener” argument to be made in other places, too.
