Ford: Oden v. Durant an 'easy call' for Kings's draft guru Chad Ford breaks down which phenomenal college star each current lottery team would pick if lucky enough to get the #1 choice in the draft.

The Kings are, obviously, a no-brainer. Here is what Ford has to say:

This is an easy call. Brad Miller's on his last legs, and the team already has made a major commitment to Ron Artest.

Put Oden with Artest, Kevin Martin and Mike Bibby and the Kings are contenders again. Put Durant on the team and it's a potential soap opera.

This was obviously written before Artest's arrest, but I doubt it changes anything. There's a pipeline of talent at the wing positions. There's nothing in the middle. No-brainer.
