Marc Stein tweeting that Heat, Kings, and Mavs interested in signing Lou Amundson. Could be a sign that Miami does not think they are going to get Oden.

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.

quote:

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.

I wonder if the Bucks releasing Slava Kravtsov will throw another possible wrench into things. He's a big, that's very much cheaper that showed promise last season with Detroit. May make teams re-assess with the dollar amount being different IMO.

You don't think Miami has direct access to odens agent?

They don't need to leak shite on twitter esp to some guy with 200 followers

I would think they are much more connected to the information than random fans and do not have to rely on twitter.



The way twitter is an issue for athletes and teams these days, I'd be surprised if they didn't have multiple staff members or interns dedicated to following social media.

They've been using the media to manipulate Miami for weeks. Why have they been doing that if direct communication was sufficient?

You don't know that, simply because you have no clue what is said behind closed doors.

I really hope 42 is right on this one. I know the wrath he will face if he is wrong. #EltonBrand

I thought McNamara was the one saying Brand to NOLA was a done deal.

Of course I don't know that, I've never claimed to have sources. Do you have a better explanation for what we've seen over the past month? The media doesn't get its stories because the sources like them so much. Nearly every story exists because the source has an angle.

Greg Oden to likely make his decision today. Leaning towards New Orleans per latest reports, but Heat still in the game, as always.


They have 26k followers...

This feels like the Nnamdi/Saints/49ers situation all over again. Oden's agent just trying to get Miami to offer more than the minimum.
