To me, I think he will be a good fit for Miami for the following reasons:
1. He’s a true big man at 7ft tall. This will only make Miami better especially since they lack size(their biggest player is Chris Bosh).
2. He plays very good defense on-and-off the ball(averaged 2.3 blocks a game in his 21 games with Portland back in 2009). This will make Miami’s defense even more stifling.
3. He takes high-efficiency shots(60.5 FG percentage in 2009).
4. He grabs a lot of boards(rebounds for those who don’t understand basketball lingo).
Yea I know Miami’s taking a chance with him especially since he didn’t since 2009, but I don;t think its a bad risk either. Let’s face it! What is the Heat losing in this deal? He’s not getting a max contract or anything. He only getting the veteran’s minimum and he’s only signing for two years with a players option for the second year. Not bad right…
I just want to see how well he will hold up during the season. I think he will do well.
Good luck Oden!
