sovann, it's an indication of overall strength. Purists of any sport will always argue technique is all you need but the fact remains that athletes run professional sports.
Golfers were bragging about how it's a technical sport for thinkers and then Tiger came in with his 400 lb bench press COMBINED with technique and made them his bitch.
Baseball fans argue mechanics are what make great players but the best players are guys like Pujols and Arod....freak athletes.
Oden is more prepared for an 82 game season. Having a great bench isn't the biggest factor but if all other things were equal (which they aren't since Oden raped Durant in just about every category) I'll take the guy repping it 10 or more times over the guy who is strangling on the bar.
