The Timberwolves could have grabbed the spotlight, too, by coming to a conclusion on the Garnett trade talks, which they didn't.
Heck, the Atlanta Hawks even could have stuck to form and walked out of here without a point guard, which they didn't.
Instead, this was a night when the two teams at the top of the draft went with the safe picks -- even though those safe picks carry the weight of massive long-term expectations that won't dissipate until either those expectations are fulfilled, or until it becomes clear whether one of the teams came out ahead of the other in what will forever be remembered as the Oden-Durant draft.
Yes, it might be remembered in Boston as the Ray Allen trade night, or in New York as the Zach Randolph trade night. But in the long run, it'll be the night of Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, who forever will be linked as the faces of Draft Night 2007.
Check back in a half-decade or so to see which one of them should have gone first.
