Would you have traded the #2 pick in 2007 (which was Durant) for Tmac at the time if you were Seattle/OKC?

This would have formed a trio of Ray Allen, Tmac and Rashard Lewis from Seattle/OKC perspective.

No....why not put would you have traded the pick that turned into Durant instead of being cryptic

Because maybe he wants the question answered without the use of hindsight.

you had better give us a brief description about how they were back in 2007?Like T-Mac 's regular season stats and his injuries reports .I think it would be easier for us to discuss otherwise the readers need to google them ,which is inconvenient

at the time, absolutely, you do it without hesitation.

Obviously with the benefit of hindsight now, you don't do it...in 2007 though, I am guessing the majority of GM's would have jumped all over that opportunity.

fine.I has been a fan of NBA since 2010 playoffs so i dont know too much about the things happened before 2010.
I know T-Mac is an injury -prone star and his last few years in Houston was a nightmare for the fans.But I don't too much about the details
I can google the news but it will be more direct if it is summarized by a veteran fan like Jordanbulls, since the online data can be lengthy and messy.
Everyone is not willing to trigger this trade with the benefit of hindsight .So i suppose Jordanbulls inclines to do it ?In this sense he will have more arguments to support the value of the 2007 T-Mac and think of feasible plans to let the transaction happen .

No, because I would rather have Kevin Durant.

What kind of question is this :laugh:

Let me ask you this. You have the #2 pick this year would you trade it for Harden or PG?

No. Durant was about as sure a thing there was since Lebron at the time.

Another bad thread by JB.

At the time, yes no question.Do people not remember how amazing tmac was back then? After seeing how tmac was hampered by injuries, no not at all.

Btw to the guy saying Durant was a sure thing....no player is a sure thing.

There is a brand new website that not too many people have heard of yet. It's called GOOGLE. You can literally type in anything into this GOOGLE and it will bring up results immediately. I think they are calling it a search engine.

Probably yes. Wasn't T-Mac leading his team to a 22 game wining streak that season without Yao who was injured? Durant was not as hyped during the draft. Greg Oden was the consensus #1 pick. If you were not a NBA fan that time, you wouldn't know this obviously. I say yes Seattle does it.

Would Seattle have been able to absorb T-Mac's contract? Didn't Lewis already make 50 million at the time?

Hard to say no but with Allen and Lewis they would have had a jam... I'd rather go young

absolutely not. The top of that class featured 2 franchise changing players who looked like perennial All Stars, with HoF potential. Having the #2 pick guaranteed you one of those guys. I would not have traded that pick to anybody in the league in 2007 unless it was for Lebron James, who was 22 years old and just carried his team to the Finals.

Knowing that Oden was going to have multiple career shorting injuries makes it easy to say yes, but Oden was the best prospect the NBA had seen since Lebron, and was going to be the next Shaq. Durant is/was going to be an elite scorer, extremely athletic, as well as being very tall for his style of play (6'9). Both were 19 years old going into the draft. No way you trade a guarantee to get one of those 2 for McGrady.

Durant had MAJOR question marks! Oden was the sure thing.

So...

I agree with you that Oden was the big star in the draft (as I remember, he was Shaq 2.0) but what major question marks did Durant had? Other than being to thin to play PF I dont see what his flaws were. I mean it was a given he would be an elite scorer as he was an above average shooter (for rookie standards) and was so athletic and tall.
