    Oden to the Heat. Shocking.

    How long does he last? 6 games?

    wow...no risk move by the heat

    upside is he becomes a dominant center and helps cover the gap between wade's aging and bosh's contract

    not likely but why not try it?

    Giving the kid a chance. I like it! Is he considered a kid... or an old man now?

    A friend of mine was able to get a letter to the editor in "Sport" magazine that got published the month after Portland took Bowie. He proclaimed how brilliant Portland was for taking Bowie over Jordan and would be justified years from now.

    We haven't let my friend forget about it to this day.

    lol NThaDrink

    even though it is true that he can shoot with both hands..

    as well as left or right handed hooks ... I was being a bit sarcastic of course

    He would be that extra big that the Heat are missing. Shame what happened to Oden's career due to injury.

    Same thing could be said for the "explosive" Brandon Roy .

    Basically a steal by the heat.

    All this guy needs to do is get low teens in minutes. Dude is a force in rebounding and shotblocking if he knees hold.

    Very good move for the heat. They got nothing to lose with this.

    Low risk. High reward.

    Playing with the Heat, he can come along slower. No need for big minutes early in the season, and can come along slow, to help lower the risk of re-injury. Giving the Heat more size, and help on the boards where they struggle.

    If not, no loss for the Heat. They can win without him.

    He will never play a season. He looked like Robert Parish when he was 12 years old. The dude is just too big for his body. He is Yao Ming. He wont play over Joel Anthony and Joel was getting very little minutes last year.

    if he can give them 10-15 mins early and eventually 20-25 mins he gives them rebounding and the big man they need when facing the bulls, pacers and any big west conf team. the one area the heat can always improve is rebounding due to lack of size and for a million a year to take a chance on a center who can give them a potential double double if healthy is def worth it, esp considering they are a 2 time championship team roster already and resigned the birdman.
