http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--greg-oden-n... Again, I think if the Miami Heat would have him, the Heat would be an, obviously, excellent choice for Greg Oden in his return to the NBA. After all, if you're going to come back after a long hiatus, why not start at...'the top'?! Oden doesn't need to go into a situation where there will be 'immediate pressure' on him to be a franchise player. He doesn't need that!! He needs to be in a comfortable situation where his skill level can 're-ascend' at a gradual pace. Believe me, if Oden starts out playing less than half of an NBA game, it's not going to hurt Miami, and it'll give him a golden opportunity to regain his confidence at a reasonable pace.

My gut instinct tells me that Greg Oden is going to be 'the Missing Link' in the paint for the Miami Heat. But the 'Big If' continues be those knees. You know, in the back of a lot of peoples mind, they're going to constantly wonder if that next rebound, that next pick-n-roll, that next hard turn, that next slam dunk is going to be the one that sends Oden off the court, again. I hope the best for him.
