Regardless, dismissing finances, Miami is the best city for the 7-foot, 285 pound Oden to relocate to.
Capturing consecutive Larry O’Brien Championship Trophies last month, the mammoth center would provide Miami with essential size and interior defense.
More importantly, on a squad of stars, Oden would face little scrutiny as a member of the Heat.
Averaging 9.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 82 games in five injury-plagued seasons as a Portland Trail Blazer, Oden is a powerful force in the paint when physically able.
Unfortunately, the likable giant is healthy as frequently as Lindsay Lohan is sober.
Rather than moving to San Antonio or the “Big D,” Greg Oden should ink a mid-level contract to spark the Heat next winter.by
