Lizard leaning toward Oden?
Most every NBA draft expert around is predicting that, should the Bucks win the lottery next Tuesday, they will draft Texas F Kevin Durant. Well, as Lee Corso would say, "Not so fast my friend".
Listening to Larry Harris on this morning's D-List on Milwaukee's ESPN Radio 1510 Days/ 1290 Nights, I thought I detected a hint of Oden on his mind. He didn't come out and say he wanted the Ohio State big man, but if you read between the lines of his comments, I think that's the guy he's dreaming of.
Its all speculative on my part, of course. But, on the show, he talked about how they would draft the best player, regardless of their personnel situation; he talked about how Andrew Bogut has proven he can play the four and has expressed a willingness to go back there if necessary; he talked about how San Antonio drafted Tim Duncan when they already had David Robinson; and he talked about how he would have drafted Michael Jordan even though the Blazers already had Clyde Drexler. It all seemed to me like he was laying the groundwork rationale for an Oden pick. BucksFans, we shall... hopefully... see.
