2007: Kevin Durant Pre-Draft Workout for Portland
Sam Bowie still unfairly gets tagged as the biggest bust ever just because he was drafted by the Blazers before Michael Jordan. What many people don’t know is the Bulls didn’t even want Michel Jordan. What should be the unanimous biggest bust ever is current Miami Heat player Greg Oden who was drafted before Kevin Durant in the 2007 NBA Draft.
Hooped Up Online dug up this gem showing a humble Durant working out with the Blazers and talking about the players that he patterns his game after like McGrady, KG and Dirk (it was nice hearing the young KD say he’s not as good as Dirk). Near the end of the interview he said he hopes whatever shoe company he signs with will make affordable shoes…well you can pick up the Toddler version of the KD VI for less than $50.
If watching that video wasn’t painful enough for Blazers fans then enjoy the next video. I made this back in 2010 and a lot of people replied that it was too early and Greg will come back and make Portland proud…well I hope Portland fans will feel proud watching Greg win a championship with the Heat.
