    Man only 19 years old, so young.

    Random side note, it weirds me out how Amir Johnson is 2 years younger than Taj Gibson but has played 4 more seasons in the NBA.
    Amir was drafted straight outta high school

    Taj Gibson was a 21 year old freshmen at USC and got drafted at 23

    Yep. 56th pick in 2005, last draft to allow high school draftees (the change to college only resulted in the Andrea Bargnani draft the next year).

    Which potentially really screwed us. Who would we have drafted out of high school?

    Durant? Oden?

    Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.

    Hope you're wrong.

    Durant most likely would've still gone to Texas. He was super raw out of high school and waaaaaayy skinnier than he is now. Probably would've been a 11-25 pick

    I don't know about that. He was pretty much the consensus 2nd best prospect in the country after Oden, even coming out of high school. And remember who was in the 2006 draft....Other than maybe Aldridge, who would bump him from the #2 spot? He really wasn't that raw. I'd be shocked if he didn't go top 5. He probably would be the top wing prospect even out of HS compared to Morrison, Gay and Roy.

    Ya I'm not sure this is at all true.. Durant was hugely heralded all through out highschool.

    After playing two years of high school basketball at National Christian Academy and one year at Oak Hill Academy, Durant transferred to Montrose Christian School for his senior year, growing five inches before the start of the season and beginning the year with a height of six feet, seven inches. Prior to the start of the season, he committed to the University of Texas. At the conclusion of the year, he was named the Washington Post All Met Basketball Player of the Year, as well as MVP of the 2006 McDonald's All American Game. He was widely regarded as the second-best high school prospect of 2006.

    The only thing keeping Durant from being #1 was the whole "can't miss prospect in Greg Oden. Once in a generation Center" blah blah blah.


    And I wouldn't even say he was that much skinnier at Texas...

    If Bruno hits a step back 3 in Durants face, can we call the season a success?

    100% yes.
