Kevin Durant sticks up for Greg Oden, calls bust talk 'nonsense'

durant gsw

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant has a message for Greg Oden, who told Outside the Lines last week that he'll "be remembered as the biggest bust in NBA history."

"Nonsense. That's nonsense," Durant adamantly told ESPN on Sunday night. "In order for you to be a bust, you have to actually play and show people that you progressed as a player. He didn't get a chance to."

Oden and Durant were taken No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in the 2007 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle SuperSonics. The debates about who would go No. 1 were minimal. Oden was viewed as a future Hall of Fame big man, the next coming of Shaquille O'Neal.

Portland elected to add the 7-footer to a team that featured rising All-Star Brandon Roy and a young, emerging inside-outside player named LaMarcus Aldridge. Oden missed his entire rookie season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his knee.

His best season was the 2009-10 campaign, when he averaged 11.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 21 games.
