    There is a lot of debate right now about Kevin Durant vs. Greg Oden as the #1 overall pick. Really interesting.

    Based on lottery teams needs and the history of previous drafts I think its safe to say Oden will be the number 1 pick.

    Seems to me Pierce has some pretty valid points, especially when you look at it from his soon to be 30 year old POV. Even with the worst record the Celtics could easily get shut out in the lottery. It's happened before I think. And who knows how many years, if at all (*cough* Darko), it will take for a phenom to make a contribution.

    Perhaps, not likely, but would you rather have the pick or package it with Jefferson and start a frontline with Pierce, Garnett, and Perkins starting right now?

    Plus, he's playing with 1 arm... and it's his bad one. What a great way to develop your left.
