    Greg Oden is the kind of player that if he himself is not getting injured, he is inuring others.

    He plays out of control at times, elbows flying, pushing over the back etc.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he takes out couple of the Heat players during practice.

    In any case....

    It will be interesting to see him play this season. Let's see how long he will last. Lucky him he didn't joined San Antonio or Dallas because he had to put up with Dwight Howard.

    Wow, the Heat's biggest weakness is now their strength. They now have some serious size on their front court.

    This signing doesn't mean anything. Lebron could win the ring next year playing 1 on 5.

    3peat.

    Well it's still a big question mark considering how injury prone he is.

    With all of the upgrades their key conference rivals made, Miami needed a high reward type of move such as this that could end up paying huge dividends.

    No guarantee, obviously, but we all know this dude is a game-changer when healthy.

    I hope he can comeback to somewhat his normal self. Seems like a good person that just couldn't stay healthy, similar to Yao.

    Thought it would take the MMLE, but looks like its for the minimum. Riley being Riley again.

    Well, I can no longer hope he returns to full health.
