Do you really think a rumor posted by 42 gets the Heat's attention?
Might have been their only play. The nationals like Spears and Stein didn't bite, having a story about Oden to the Pelicans coming from Miami looks suspicious, and the TP typically refuses to break news. BSS is next in the media food chain of places to plant this.
I almost feel that 42 saw the kid who posted that Oden signed with the Heat this morning and felt that he wanted to be the first to say Oden was coming to NOLA (just in case he does, he can say he broke the info).
I don't know him personally, but we've conversed in forums many times over the past few years and that doesn't fit his personality at all.
