If I Won The Lottery

Kevin Durant is a joy to watch, but I’m a traditionalist, and I say it’s Oden all the way. He’ll be able to anchor the defense from day one and his offensive production in college wasn’t too shabby considering he couldn’t use his good hand. How would Durant have done last season without his right wrist? High-scoring super-athletic wing players sell sneakers and t-shirts, dominant big men win championships. Michael Jordan is the salient exception, but there’s the point — unless your alternative to a big man is literally the best player ever, you take the center (and, yes, Tim Duncan is a center).
