I'd never seen such hype for two NCAA players of the year.
Many people were even putting them #1 and #2 in the draft at various times.
A little reading between the lines going on....
they had fantastic college careers.... it wasn't just based on nothing.... and it's not like Adam Morrison was the only white guy in the draft.... Was Jimmer Fredette marketed similarly? Reading between the lines has led you away from acknowledging their stellar college careers as being the major reason, not their skin colour.
In fact, maybe you're right... maybe Kevin Durant got screwed because he wasn't as black as Oden.... it all makes sense now. Good thing we have Blake Griffin as the new white hype!
