The Miami Heat were rumored to be after Andrew Bynum after he was waived by the Chicago Bulls this season, but they ultimately passed because they already had Greg Oden to fill the role they’d need Bynum for. As a result, the Heat were grilled a bit for not landing Bynum, who despite his woes is still viewed as better than Oden.
On Wednesday night, Oden showed his dominance in a brilliant flash of what could have been and what might slightly be in the postseason this year. When Lance Stephenson went up for a dunk, Oden zeroed in and destroyed the dunk attempt with authority.
Oden hasn’t always been there for the Heat and he’s chipping away at his draft bust status, but plays like this not only make the Heat look good for signing him but tease us all with what might have been.
