NBA: Kevin Durant Sticks Up for Greg Oden, Calls Bust Talk ‘Nonsense’

Greg Oden was taken No. 1 in the 2007 NBA Draft, and Kevin Durant was selected as the No. 2 pick.  Oden was believed to be a future Hall of Famer and the next Shaquille O’Neal, but multiple knee injuries kept him sidelined and in five seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers he only played 82 games.  Durant, on the other hand, has grown to be one of the biggest stars in the league.  Oden recently called himself one of the biggest busts in NBA history, but his draftmate Durant doesn’t agree.

(Photos) NBA: Twitter Goes In on Kevin Durant With Jokes After Warriors Blow Out Loss to Spurs

The Golden State Warriors had an incredible season, finishing 73-9.  They started last season with 24 straight wins.  Since they added superstar Kevin Durant this summer, it was assumed that they would be even better this year.  Well, that win streak to start the season is already off the table because they lost the opening game to the San Antonio Spurs.  Not only did they lose, they lost BADLY as the Spurs won 129-100.  There were jokes on the Warriors, but the Durant really took a killing on social media as many still disapprove of him joining the team that beat him in the Western Conference finals just a couple months ago.
