- With Kevin Durant and Greg Oden once again paired together in the news, we decided to look back on a better time for Oden, when played in the 2006 All-American Game.
This was around the time that Cook peaked as a player. He would go on to play for Thad Matta’s “Thad Five” at Ohio State, be selected just outside the lottery in the 2007 NBA draft and win the NBA Three-Point Shootout in just his second season. When he joined the Thunder in 2010, he passed all of his powers on to Durant, who would win his first of four scoring titles that year. Golden State fans probably have the Ohio native to thank if they take home a title in the Durant era.
