LeBron James takes vicious shot at Blazers talking up Kevin Durant

By Jesse Reed

LeBron James showed no mercy taking a vicious shot at the Portland Trail Blazers for having passed up Kevin Durant in favor of Greg Oden Thursday during a press conference.

As you likely remember, the Blazers opted to pass on Durant in the 2007 NBA Draft, going instead with Oden, who turned out to be one of the biggest all-time busts in Association history.

Portland certainly hasn’t forgotten about that, and apparently neither has James.

What’s especially funny about this is that one of Portland’s players, after watching Durant bury the Cavaliers in Game 3, had the most ridiculously conceived take on Durant Thursday morning (more on all that here).

Perhaps James caught wind of that and felt he needed to make a point.
