Would Lebron James enter the dunk contest for 1 million dollars? I don't really care much for him in a dunk contest because I agree that he is an in game dunker but it would be great to see all these people getting together for something and have Lebron recognize it.

Jarvis must be doing some nice stuff behind the scenes. It seems a little odd to lock him up for the rest of the season already. I know we couldn't 10-day him again, and he'd probably go somewhere else if we hesitated. Micky must be feeling thick in the pocket.





Oden thing doesn't surprise me, even though the agent shot down the last rumor (he fears Riley). I like it. The mere thought of him in a suit on our bench gives me abundant hope. I don't care about the impossible dream of getting him to reach his original ceiling. Keeping him healthy and giving us a solid 20-25 mpg would be a godsend. Allot him minutes as if he's the age he looks. **** it. Vet min, no risk.

Kinda odd that in the "past couple of weeks" Pat has gone from never having discussed Oden with him (despite multiple rumors over the past couple of seasons, one even confirmed by the agent if memory serves) to "very interested."



As W2 said, we don't intend to have him on the roster this season. I'd imagine we'd just try to Curry him and nestle him under our wing and say "if Gilbert comes at you with a contract, call us first." Just keep him working out in our facilities for the rest of the season. He's a little hotter of a commodity than Curry, so we may have to actually sign him to keep him around long enough to reap some benefits. Screw a boss like Riles and you're fertilizer, though, so I doubt that's a concern.

I'm pretty sure his last surgery was early last year, like February. Microfracture. That takes a year, minimum, to rehab from for most athletes. I'm no doctor, but for Greg I'd do 1.5 at least. Basically I wouldn't debut him in a game until close to 2014. It's worth waiting nearly two years after the procedure to be safe. We'd only have one try at it.

I think he's been messing around with that German shit, too, so we'll see if that has a positive effect.



All that's negated by his profound suck.

To be clear, my argument is only against Oden riding the pine the whole season knowing that he can't play until at least next season.

I don't have a problem dropping Pittman for Oden next year if there is a chance for Oden to be serviceable.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

Sunday's game in Toronto just got more interesting
Quote:
Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine
Going online now: ESPN sources say Grizzlies and Raps have deal in place to swap Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi for Ed Davis and Jose Calderon
This game is at 2pm meaning that the team will be on a plane and will miss the super bowl. Talk about awful scheduling.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

LBJ is pissed about missing the SB. "How disgusting is that?" He said if DAL was playing he'd stay in TOR and watch.

I don't get that trade for TOR...trade a nice young big for frickin' Gay? Gay makes little to no sense on that roster.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

I knew they'd trade one of their many bigs. Thought it'd be Bargs to go 1st, but they obviously havent found anyone willing to take him on. I'd brought up Johnson for us, but that aint happening anymore obviously.

Lowry
DeRozan
Gay
Johnson
Valanciumas

Pretty good group. Dont see why they cant fight for that 8th spot.

Memphis got a great deal though. They trade Speights a couple of days ago and replace him with Davis, and get Prince to replace Gay. Prince isnt the same player he was a few years ago, but he's still solid.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

I like moving Lowry into the starter spot since I believe he's a better all-around player than Caldy, but DeRozan/Gay screams the shits to me if I were a Raptors fan. They'll have games where they look tremendous, but on the whole I think they'll be an awful duo.

And yeah, it looked like Memphis would have a major hole at the wing when these rumors were getting intense. Getting Prince helps a lot. Davis is also a great replacement for Speights. Did they get Daye too or is he going to TOR? Either way, way to go Holly!

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

Also happy to see Prince get a chance on a contender before he fizzles out completely. He was always the Piston I hated the least. What the hell is Detroit going to do with Calderon?

Oh, and I can't wait to see the video of East All-Star practice, while Spo is imploring all the guys to find their "truth" and play with a "positive disposition."

He's so starting Jrue Holiday over Kyrie. I'm serious. Everyone wants to see Kyrie start, but Jrue is the longer-tenured player (and is averaging around 4.5 more assists IIRC), which is so Spo. If he doesn't do that, he'll throw CB a bone and move LBJ to the back court.

LeBron
Wade
Melo
Bosh
KG

Garnett really mucks it up. Worst East starter in a while.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

I think Bosh will be coming off the bench.

I see your logic and I agree with it, my guts says that Kyrie will end up starting anyway.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

Why did they sign Jarvis for the rest of the season, yet he gets no minutes.

But they sign Birdman to just a 10 day contract, and he gets minutes.


I guess they want to see what bird can bring before they do that?

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

My guess is to save money.

We had already signed Varnado to two 10 day contracts. Rules state you either have to sign them up for the year after that, or let them go elsewhere. Obviously we like Jarvis and decided to keep him around.

With Birdman, I believe if we signed him to a years contract now he would receive a pro-rated minimum salary, where as by buying more time with a ten sayer, when he does sign the minimum year contract it'll be lower...atleast that's my reasoning and thoughts?

At the least it's a smart way to protect yourself in case he happens to get hurt early in the deal. Also buys time in case someone better comes loose. Can't hurt.



Looks like we're popping out the 90s jerseys early. We're not supposed to wear them until we play CLE a week from monday.

Re: '13 All things Heat thread

That's interesting. Usually with this team, they alternate road jersey after losses and keep the same unis after wins. Guess they're both red though.

I just have trouble seeing Spo of all people rationalizing the decision to start a younger player simply because there's more hype around him at the moment. Jrue even has the better record, to go along with more PGian stats.

He'll play the "respect" card. I'd bet he'd even mention our playoff series.
