NBA Draft 2007: Sonics get #2 pick!
MONEY! Big news for all us Sea-town fans scoring the second pick in the 2007 Oden-Durant Sweepstakes. So stoked right now. "The Sonics last had the No. 2 pick in 1990 when they selected point guard Gary Payton from Oregon State"...and we know how that turned out! The GLOVE! (remember those old Sonics cartoon commercials with the Glove and Reign Man and some alien spaceship dude? I gotta find those somewhere on this world wide web). Since Portland has the #1 spot (curse you Nate McMillan!), they'll most likely take Oden which in my opinion would be the best fit for Seattle's roster (has Seattle ever had a dominate center since Jack Sikma!?). Nonetheless! Durant plays much more versatile than Oden and is gonna be sick as option #3 in the Ray-Ray~'Shard~Durant Triangle O' Talent (patent pending).
But...Sonics still have some huge pieces of the puzzle to lay down still:
- resign free-agent Rashard Lewis
- find a new arena IN SEATTLE (I might not go on if they get shipped out after next season)
- hire a good coach and stick with him for crying out loud! who's gonna coach the Triangle O' Talent?
(Garlan, did I tell you SI called me the other day...want me to write for them. Then Kevin Calabro called to see if I'd announce games with him. Told 'em thanks, but I've already got a glamorous job auditing computer systems)
