On draft day I was one of the few who simply could not shake that crazy feeling that Portland would draft Kevin Durant and the most celebrated center prospect since Shaq would fall to the Sonics.
Now Greg Oden will reportedly miss his entire rookie year.
With my involvement in Save Our Sonics and the unshakable feeling that momentum is starting to build for the Seattle SuperSonics I have to ask, what would this blow have done to our franchise? I'll go on record and say that, if Oden were a Sonic, and if this gigantic momentum killer occured it would have taken the air out of our sails and likely resulted in the franchises departure.
Stunning for Blazer fans.
