It's been leaked that Carmello Anthony was offered for the #1 pick but that Portland turned it down. Makes you wonder what other franchise guys are getting thrown under the bus for Greg Oden.

If this guy really turns out to be what everyone is saying he should be, then there are only a few safe guys in the league. Well, really one... Duncan. I could see any other superstar getting gambled for this guy.

Ran across is on RealGM.com I tried to go into a Denver forum and it was brought up but half angrily denied it while others discussed the possibiliy of it happened. Personally, I don't doubt it for one second.

Sadly I would trade anyone except Lebron James for Oden, even my beloved Tim Duncan. Tim has maybe 1 more title after this, Oden has the potential for a solid 15 year career. Actually fuck that, I wouldn't screw Duncan for both Durant and Oden because he has been a loyal warrior for years. Go Spurs!

I was about to say, loyalty would keep my from trading Duncan for Oden. I'm think this may be our last title shot for awhile, but you never know. What if Billups and Wallace decide to join us for a million dollars each ;)

1. Trade Duncan for Oden 2. Wait for Duncan's contract to run out 3. Duncan signs with the Spurs for the MLE, and you have Robinson/Duncan pt.2

Yougottawanna has a point. But I think it runs out in 3 or 4 years. That's a long wait.

"if Duncan isnt the best PF of all time who is?" Someone's who actually a PF. Duncan is the sixth-best center of all time.

It would be hard to rank Duncan lower than 3rd on anyones list. Karl Malone was very durable and he put up incredible numbers for so long. Yet he never performed when it counted, he had quality teammates too. Kevin Mchale was a great player when healthy but he was always breaking down. Duncan can do almost everything Kevin can do and he has been more durable. If Duncan wins a title this year I think most sport writers will be ranking Duncan as the top PF. As far as Center i got him top 6 or maybe 4. Russell, Chamberland, Kareem, Hakeem, Shaq, and Duncan. The order might change a little. If Duncan can talk a couple of players into playing for 1 million dollars he might move up to 3rd.

Lots of people I would not trade for Oden - Lebron, Kobe, Wade, Nash, Amare. I would not trade TD either - Oden is a few years away from his peak. By then the Spurs's window may be closed.

LOL A asdf, I think LA would trade Kobe in a LA minute for Oden or Durant. Nash and Amare would be traded as well. I wonder why no one mentions the MVP.

So San anonio has started 2 centers over the last 10 years? Has any other team in the history of NBA basketball started 2 centers for a whole season? I dont even think the rockets ever did. And Tim always guards his position, which is PF most of the time. Tim is a PF full time, and a center part time. Just because he's 6'11" doesn't mean he's not a PF. By that type of logic Magic Johnson is the greatest power forward of all time then. And Charles Barkley was a stellar shooting guard.

No way LA trades Kobe for Durant or Oden. At best, Durant becomes Kobe, but that's no guarantee. Oden is a different type of player, but come on. Kobe is one of the top 5 players in the NBA right now (Kobe, Wade, Duncan, Lebron, Nash). There is no guarantee Oden will be at that level *ever*. Did you see him play this year? His offensive game is terrible, worse than Mutombo's game at the same time. Dirk is a tougher call. Depends if he can develop the post up game to go against smaller players with long arms.

"His offensive game is terrible, worse than Mutombo's game at the same time." He had 25 points against Florida....with his left hand. I think the big fellas offensive game will be just fine. On Ewings level...maybe not. But good enough...plus, Portland has Aldridge and Roy. Those guys can take up the slack. Now all they need is a small forward...Noccioni?
