Blazers Win #1 Pick

Tuesday night was the night 14 teams were waiting for to give them hope for the next season. That hope comes in the form of 2 future stars in the league, Ohio States behemoth center, Greg Oden, and Texas' superstar, Kevin Durant. Portland won the luck of the draw, as its ping-pong ball was selected giving them the #1 pick in the NBA draft. Seems like more bad karma for the Boston Celtics, who almost seemed to be playing for the #1 pick towards season's ends. Portland locks in the top pick and most likely Greg Oden, who is going to be a force for years to come in the NBA. We may even see back to back Rookie of the Year winners, from the same team, as Brandon Roy of the Blazers won this season. Some unparalleled NBA history.
