Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...rested_In_Oden

If Oden can return healty, and joins the Heat the NBA (for all non Heat fans) will be absolutely pointless to watch.

Wade
LBJ
Bosh
Oden (if healthy)

would be one of the greatest teams (on paper) in the History of the NBA. Teams like OKC/LAC/LAL etc wouldn't even stand a chance.

I know it's a long shot that Oden would be able to return to his full potential, but if he does I really hope he decides to sign elsewhere.

I can see Oden becoming a solid backup center that shows glimpses of greatness but that's it.

Re: Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

I don't see Oden ever being the great center that we all predicted him to be when he was picked first overall, but if he can be a good solid center and can stay consistently healthy at the center position so that the heat can have Bosh back at PF, then the Heat will definitely be a dynasty.

Re: Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

We don't even need Oden at the level that he was drafted for. If he can be like a Camry minus the jumper, that is good enough.

Re: Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

Lack of big man that can rebound, block shots and defend the middle is our biggest flaw.

Would be huge for the Heat to get him. If he's a 10/10/2 kind of guy, then the Heat are good.

Worth a shot. Worst case scenario is he ends up on the IR

Re: Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

The guy is done. I'll gladly admit I'm wrong if that's the case. It would be nice to see him back, but after so many knee issues its pretty clear hes done.

Re: Miami Heat Interested in ODEN

He's still 24 years old, guys. 24 is easily 3 or 4 years before the prime of the vast majority of big men in this league. He could still have a long career ahead of him if he gets his injuries straightened up. He should probably sign with Phoenix - not a joke.

Most 24 year old big men don't look like they're 62 and have bones made of glass though.


Oden is the story of a tragic military experiment gone wrong.

I hope for the sake of this league's future that you are wrong and that he can overcome his issues. We need more dynamic big men. I don't like it when the league is clearly dominated by wing players. I want more diversity.

Agreed. I'd be happy to be wrong on this one. The leagues needed more quality bigs for quite some time.

Just for the feel good story I hope he can have a nice comeback. This is probably his last chance though.
