Stay in School
Wouldn't it be great if Kevin Durant and Greg Oden stayed in college another year?? Everyone is just so sure they will be the #1 and 2 pick and they definitely deserve to be whenever they decide to make that jump, but they should wait. They sound like they really like being in college so they just stay. There's something to be said for not wanting to grow up as fast as the NBA will require them too. I know there are millions of dollars at stake, but the money will be there. Have you seen some of the money teams are giving away to players? All you need to do is make sure you show your ass in a contract year, then someone will most certainly pay you a King's ransom for your services. Anyhow, I'd like to see them stay just because it would really make this year's draft interesting. What if teams really are tanking in order to get the services of these two men. It would serve them right if they stayed in school. I'm not saying teams are losing intentionally, but let's just say there have been a lot of "out indefinitely, season ending injuries" occurring of late. It just doesn't seem like teams are all that hesitant to sit their guys for the remainder of the season. I don't know what these guys will do, but I hope they hold onto to their youth for a little bit longer.
