Wade Heats Up Odom Campaign

Apparently, it's not getting any easier for Lamar Odom to make up his mind between staying with the Odom-Kobe   defending champion Los Angeles Lakers or bolting for a reunion with the Miami Heat.

That's because Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant are at it again, when it comes to fierce competition between the league's two best shooting guards.

And if you think their showdowns on the court are classic, just consider their recruiting skills. Both Wade and Bryant are battling for Odom's long-term affection. Both have taken their pleas public in recent days.

On Saturday, Wade took his to another level: Tweetville.

In announcing his return to tweeting after a brief hiatus, Wade sent out this messaged to Odom early Saturday afternoon on his twitter account.

"This is for Lamar Odom ... come back to where it started for both of us.. the franchise u help build back up wants u to End it all here."

Wade, clearly, is in full-court press mode for Odom, who is weighing a five-year, $34 million offer from the Heat against a reported shorter but more annually lucrative deal from the Lakers. Odom is weighing the pull from one of the teams where he blossomed early in his career against the feelings of loyalty from a defending champion.

"I'm optimistic he'll be back," Bryant said this week. "He makes us a much, much stronger team."

Odom and Wade were teammates during Wade's rookie season in 2003-04. Together, they overcame a rough start to the season, won 42 games and advanced to the second round of the playoffs. Odom spoke fondly about his experiences with the Heat during this year's Finals, when his Lakers defeated the Magic.

ODOM-WADE "I remember how competitive we were," Odom said. "It was a real brotherhood environment there. I guess that's the reason we overachieved."

The irony of it all is that it took Odom's departure to Los Angeles in that trade for Shaquille O'Neal to set the stage for Wade to get his championship in 2006. On the other hand, it took Odom to leave the team he had so much fun with to eventually get a chance to win his ring alongside Bryant and the Lakers.

Now, Wade is campaigning hard for Odom to return so they can make things all right by winning one together - just like they talked about doing years ago as teammates. Does Odom have a better shot at winning his next title with the Lakers than he does with the Heat? No doubt. But that might not settle the signing issue with Odom.

See, he's always seemed to be the kind of player and person who would rather be wanted and happy on a playoff contender than undervalued and constantly criticized on a championship contender.

But therein lies the pull.

On one side, Wade is offering a return to home and happiness. On the other, Bryant is extending the chance to be part of a dynasty. That the Heat has remained in the Odom sweepstakes even this long says a lot.

So which should Odom follow?

His head (Bryant/Lakers)?

His heart (Wade/Heat)?

Or, his accountant (the best deal he can get -  slight edge: Lakers)?

With Wade, Odom and Beas as our core adding a max FA like; Bosh, Amare or even Lbron (possibly) and the Heat is playin for the championship for the next 5 years...Cleveland will not have the cap space to add an all star sidekick for Lbron. #23's choices will be NY, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Cleveland (bad salary cap shape) and MIAMI. The Heat could end up being the most enticing proposal for Lbron, given the cap space, talent to play with and the city of Miami over Cleveland...

Wade
Lebron
Odom
Beasley
Whoever

Championship. After waiting for three years for Riles to do anything in free agency, it looks like the master plan could set this team up to on top for the next 5 years!

9/11 was an inside job

checkout wtc7.net & watch the collapse videos

learn the truth

From Dave, last blog

"2009/10 is a BUST accept it now and move on.

Riley is not a good GM. Where is our Joe Dumars? "

C'mon Dave, with patience Riles has set us up to be the premier destination, cap and otherwise for one of the stud max FA next summer; Lebron, Bosh, Amare, Johnson (in that order). only a handful of teams can compete for these guys, and we can pair them with Wade, Beasley and possibly Odom or another 10mill FA!!!! we are at the beginning of the best Heat chapter yet...

As a person, you always have to follow your heart because your head will follow you afterwards. I am a believer in postitive thinking and the laws of attraction. The Lakers are underestimating his value and that is their fault. Miami wants Odom to come home. I figure if Odom arrives and does what his heart tells him to do, he will be ALOT happier here...that might even bring another ring within the next 2-3 years.

Shawn, you can't be serious, LeBron is not coming to Miami and neither is Odom. Odom is using Miami for leverage and would be a fool to give up a serious chance to go to the finals and repeat with the lakers by coming to Miami and hoping we sign a big free agent and keep wade in 2010.

We are not set up to be a location where a top player wants to play because our coach stinks and other teams will be available for all of those guys with max contract offers. As if a potential pairing with Beas attracts anyone, the Heat didn't even use him properly.

Riley has been a pathetic GM in my opinion, he has set us up to potentially lose Wade by doing nothing to make this team better. He has made terrible signings and trades and yet we still are supposed to believe this guy is a genius because of what he did in LA. Riles should retire, he has done enough damage.

Good Job Mike. Keep up the constant updates and I'll keep coming back. Looks like your getting a following. It would be nice to have lamar back...seemed like only a pipe dream only a couple months ago.

And another thing, this notion that Odom's heart is in Miami because it would make him "happy" is asinine, he looked mighty happy winning the ring last year. Let's see how happy he is in Miami when we get bumped in the first round of the playoffs be Cleveland. Happy.....give me a break, Wade isn't even happy here that's why he is begging for help on twitter. How pathetic that he has to beg players to come to Miami. Maybe he should twitter message Riley and ask him to do something that will build on the performance of last season instead of waiting for 2010.

yeah, good to have some bloggers on here...and a daily update, yah, yah, yah!

"Riley has been a pathetic GM in my opinion, he has set us up to potentially lose Wade by doing nothing to make this team better."

Dave, that is totally not correct. think what you want about Riles, AND he has set us up to retain wade + a max FA (bosh, amare, bron, Johnson) + a mid-tier FA. those two added chips + Wade + Beasley, chalmers, cook, etc. is a fantastic core of players. that is the reality of it, we are set up better than any team, financially, for next summer. that is the master plan and patience will give us the best nucleus of talent we have ever had in Miyami. not sure why you don't see that...

If we sign odom though which is not going to happen, the heat would still have problems signing a max free agent next year...never mind we have 40 million dollars coming off the book,s what matters iw how much stays in the books....

breaking it down, beasley will be making about 4.5 mil, wade signing a max deal will make in his first year about 18.5 mil, chalmers to just estimate will be making about 1 million (closer to 800,000 but let's play along), james jones makes 4.2 million but we have a team option, but from what I know, james jones still has his contract partially guaranteed, i believe it to be about 1.5 million, then if we sign odom he will be making around 6.3 million in 2010 more or less, plus cook making another 1 million (estimate, could be a bit more)....all in all how much money is that?

That is 35.5 million, including jones contract full....now if we subtract james jones contract that would be about 32 million....the best thing the heat can do is trade james jones now unless they are certain that even with singing odom and keeping jones on the books, the heat can still sign another max free agent....the cap is feared to go down as much as 50.4 million next year, if we are left at 32, we may barely have space to sign a max free agent, i think if the cap is about 54 which is the hope, we can sign the max free agent, assuming we partially guarentee or trade james jones, which i think pat riley would most certainly do....all of that opens the door for lebron or bosh or amare to come to miami, but we would then be left with no space to add any outside talent besdies the mid-level which we may have to use on our own players, like signing JO to a solid deal, assuming he plays well, maybe bringing back udonis haslem for the bench, and what about the rest of the bench? another year of magloire? we need more outside depth than that, that is why we would be in a jam signing odom....don't get me wrong im all for it, but it's going to be tricky...

BUT TO ODOM COME HOME MAN, we need you, thr lakers do not appreciate you and management has treated u like crap, those fans are bandwagon fans, and they were not with u during ur tough stretches, come home man, come bring a ship to miami, where you are appreciated, and you get a 27 year old prime D-Wade and possibly lebron or bosh next year, go with your heart


thanks for the breakdown JD...from the different ESPN, Hooopsworld writers I have read, they state; we can sign Wade max + a Max FA + a mid level FA and still have $ for our bench. maybe Micheal wants to chime in?

I am over the negative talk bout the Heat. and have spent three off-seasons frustrated with the Heat's lack of player acquisitions, BUT here we go man, this is what we have been waiting for. The Heat's future looks very bright. Aligning a max FA with Wade and Beas and possibly a mid tier FA to shore up the PG and center position and we are gold.

Chalmers (or mid tier FA)
Wade
James
Beasley
Mid tier FA

or

Chalmers
Wade
Beasley
Bosh / Amare
Mid tier FA

Wade and James will never play together. You couldn't fit both their egos into the same locker room.
And if you don't see that or understand that you obviously haven't been paying attention to Lebron or Wade for the past year.
Playing nice for the Olympics is one thing, but they both need to be the focus of their NBA team.
That said it sure would be nice to add Odom
and maybe trade for a center.
I know Ira from the post doesn't think Chandler is the awnser, but i think hes the perfect fit next to Beasley.
A defensive anchor who doesn't need to take a lot of shots or even cares about scoring. And he would erase some of Beas's mistakes with his shot blocking.

Odom isn't gonna sign with the Heat.

I hope he does, though.

I don't know what Lamar Odom is thinking, but I hope that he chooses the Heat. If Odom signs with us, then that definetely speeds up this rebuiling process and makes things easier for Riley. Besides the the Heat need another break like they got in '04 when Odom first signed with us. There is no way that we compete this season without signifact upgrades, especially with many teams getting better this off-season. Getting Odom would be the start of the Heat transforming its roster similar to how the Lakers did theirs. By developing their young players while adding proven superstars.

All year long we been talking about having to much power at the 4 and being too thin at other spots on the floor. Now that free agency has came,
all we are talking about is the 3.Screw Boozer,we don't need him.I don't have a prob with Odom.He would be a big upgrade at the 3.Him and Beasley could switch between the 3
and the 4 depending on matchups.Don't have that with Haslem.Haslem could get a lot of minutes at the 4 backing up both players(Haslem/odom or Beasley is not losing much)
We can not give up next year cap space for nothing
short of a superstar that's
being targeted in 2010.We got 1 chance and 1 chance only for total supremecy and we can't blow it!If wade leaves next year,it a be to fufill his dream of playing in Chicago.He does that with a sign and trade
to maxiumize his money. WORSE CASE SENARIO WE LOSE
WADE AND GAIN DERICK ROSE AND OTHER PLAYERS FROM CHI-
TOWN.Make no mistake,I rather have wade in our lineup.I am willing to roll the dice because I no
the worse case senario would be a lineup of
Derick Rose
A 3 in a 3 way trade 4 Wade
Beasley/Odom
Beasley/Halem
Bosh/Stoudemire
Really don't sound that bad
to me.There are other possibilities that are not the end of the world.I would hate to give up all our options next year to only lose Wade anyway.I really like Wade,but I like Miami more.I use to think they were the same until the reality of him possibly leaving sinked in.

Odom heating up?

According to Yahoo Sports, maybe.

http://tr.im/u26q

[begin snip]

Lamar Odom(notes) is ***leaning strongly toward accepting the Miami Heat’s contract offer*** and leaving the Los Angeles Lakers, multiple sources with knowledge of the talks said.

Odom has not reached a final decision, the sources said, but there is growing belief he will ultimately return to the Heat unless the Lakers improve their current offer.

“It’s close, but it’s not done,” said one source.

Lakers officials and Odom’s representatives resumed talking after a weeklong standoff that began when Jerry Buss, the team’s owner, withdrew a four-year, $36 million offer that guaranteed $30 million. Sources close to Odom said that while the two sides have since talked, ***Buss is now offering less than the Lakers’ previous proposal***.

Odom could sign a five-year, $34 million with the Heat or take a four-year contract that would give him the option to become a free agent in three seasons and seek a more lucrative deal. He also would not have to pay state income tax in Florida.

as nice as it sounds for us to sign lebron james, it takes away from the game. can you imagine if magic and bird were on the same team? we never would have had those epic matchups. it's those battles that people talk about, not some blowout. this league needs rivalry. let him go to new york so that we can renew the best rivalry in miami. superstar vs superstar. this is wade county!

From Dave, last blog

"2009/10 is a BUST accept it now and move on.

C'mon Dave, with patience Riles has set us up to be the premier destination, cap and otherwise for one of the stud max FA next summer; Lebron, Bosh, Amare, Johnson (in that order). only a handful of teams can compete for these guys, and we can pair them with Wade, Beasley and possibly Odom or another 10mill FA!!!! we are at the beginning of the best Heat chapter yet...

Howd Dumard do in the 2003 draft DAVE. How many rings does joe have, and how many does pat have DAVE? hows darko over wade, melo, and bosh. He just traded chanucey in his prime, dave, and kept rip and tayshaun, WOW, Ben gordon. Detroits a lotto team for the next few years. Idiot
we are about to have the best team in the NBA next summer, we have more cap than anyone, and already have wade and beasley, and can add 2 more (1 max) FA's dave. Hows tay and rip, Dave

Magic had 2 other superstars in kareem and worthy . they won rings, period. Lebron might never win a ring in cleveland with what the GM has done, no cap space, they signed an old shaqille oneal, they dont have young stars, couldnt even get 1 of these artest/r wallace types to sign the mle, so , if I was lebron, what reason do you have to keep playing basketball in cleveland. Hope your GM can maybe trade for another mo williams or larry hughes? or go to miami and possibly be the team of the decade. like Rileys old laker teams and MJ's Bulls teams.

Lamar Odom. we respect you here in MIami. We dont want you just to say we have a deeper team or ""U makes us better"" . We want you because U were a great person when U came here, showed the young guys the ropes, and earned the respect of all south floridians. Lamar led the heat in 04, and we know U can now help dwade win more rings than the team you are leaving. Come join us again

How can you say Miami is his "home"? He's played his entire year - bar one in Miami - in Los Angeles, as either a Clipper or a Laker. His heart, as you put it, is not in a city that was no more than stopover in his career. And I'm sure he remembers how quickly everyone in Miami was ready to ship him off for a quickie ring. D-Wade is great on the court, but offcourt, he's a bit of an idiot.

At this point there is too much speculation going on.

we can all be optomistic and hope that we can aqcuire Odom, but the reality is we will not know until signing day for Odom. Yes or No is all we know.
As for Lebron coming to miami, yes that is a dream team. Miami will have to make all the right moves with no exceptions to aqcuire Lebron. If this were to happen next season then miami will be the team of the Decade. 3 to 4 rings with that team!

!!!The Dream Team!!!

everytime i see odom in the line up followed by haslem at the 4 makes me puke.Haslem is a back up player whether you like it or not and should not be near the starting job

"Good Job Mike. Keep up the constant updates ..."

---

Really. The guy mentions that he just returned from vacation and some "fans" want to tear him a new a-hole (in an earlier post). GET A LIFE HATERS.

Mike (and formerly Mike with Sarah Rothschild) does a solid job of reporting all things "credibly" related to the Heat. That doesn't mean chasing their tails or the tales of unicorns conceived from the febrile fickle fans.

Sure, Odom & his agent are leveraging the Heat. Why? Because the Heat has *no* leverage. Miamis is already at or past the luxury tax. They can only offer the midlevel. Riley has no leeway to negotiate, unlike the Lakers.

Which also dovetails with the nonsense that Riley is a lousy GM.

When Riley acquired Shaq, Shaq became the win-now magnet that compelled the addition of Toine, JWill etc. which eventually begat Blount, Ricky etc. Riley has had the upper hand on the vast MAJORITY of Miami deals, starting with Zo. If anything, Riley and the Heat are simply paying dues for past success, i.e., victims of their own success.

That's why 2010 means so much. Aside from priority 1 (re-signng Wade), the Heat can essentially wipe the slate clean of all the bad money/contracts/players acquired for and because of the Big Diesel -- who more than paid his way evidence the Heat's first & only trophy.

Don't get me wrong. I'm impatient like any other fan. And duh, yeah, Pat isn't infallible. But it's not as if he's sitting on his hands while "elite" talent moves to Eastern rivals. Shaq to CLE? So what? Miami got its money's worth. PHO didn't. Neither will CLE. Vince - Hedo hardly makes ORL better. In fact, quite the opposite. The Celtic Threesome are another year older. And so is Rasheed. Joe Dumars is on a roll -- uphill. Ben Gordon? Villanueva? Wilcox? But no Mike D'Antoni to make that defenseless (sorry Tayshaun but 1 is *not* enough) circus work?

I'm not saying it's all good in Heatland with or without Odom or insert fantasy here ___.

But there's no Pau Gasol, i.e., superelite, move by ANY team thus far this offseason. Artest - Odom will hurt LAL much worse than ORL - Hedo. Artest is not, never was, never will be a superelite "talent."

And if there are (superelite trades in the offing), I would *NEVER* count out Pat if the price/deal/payoff is "right."

N.B. I do think MW overlooked an *important* piece to the Yahoo report on Odom -- the fact that Jerry Buss is reportedly *not* offering Odom what he offered *before* Buss took the 3/30, 4/36 offers off the table. The Yahoo article says since LAL resumed "talks" with Odom, LA is offering LESS than they offered before -- which the Lakers blog at the LA Times confirmed through another source.

"How can you say Miami is his "home"? He's played his entire year - bar one in Miami - in Los Angeles, as either a Clipper or a Laker. His heart, as you put it, is not in a city that was no more than stopover in his career."

Wrong. Dead wrong.

Odom has owned and kept his home in Pinecrest [ http://tr.im/u4J2 ] since he was a Heat.

He's grateful to the Lakers for the opportunity to win a championship.

He's grateful to Miami for believing in him at a time when nobody else would *and* for giving him his first and only big contract to date.

Odom also (reportedly) remembers how Heat fans treated him MUCH more fairly than the fecklessly fickle fakes and fanatics of Lakerland ever have (who were & still are apt to blame Odom for everything and anything that goes wrong because he's not Kobe or Pau).

Of course, LA's arrogance is blatant, obnoxious, obvious and brazenly personified through its owner:

A combedover Hugh Hefner holdover (only dates girls young enuff to be his granddaughter) so jaded by success that he played poker while his team celebrated its latest victory parade.

Buss also runs the Lakers like a plantation with Kobe as overseer and Pau the belle of the ball. The rest? Disposable, dispensable slaves who BETTER know their place.

Heatstroked...what is with all the alliterations in your comment? This blog isn't a poem that you add to, it's just for commenting on Mike Wallace's articles. Also, you seem to be the kind of writer that thinks he's awesome because he can string together 12 adjectives that start with the same letter in a row. What is wrong with you. That paragraph about Hugh Hefner doesn't even make sense. Who cares what Hugh Hefner did during LA's victory parade? You just look like a jerk store.

Dzuma let's not look at ancient history, lets look at what Riley has done in Miami and what Dumars has done in Detroit. Who has had the better tenure?

Dumars became the Pistons' President of Basketball Operations prior to the 2000–01 NBA season. He was voted the league's Executive of the Year for the 2002-03 season and quietly went on to build the team that won the 2004 NBA Championship and became the 2005 NBA Eastern Conference Champions—doing so largely with players who had been discarded by other franchises. The Pistons made it to the Eastern Conference Finals six straight years (2003–2008) under Dumars' watch.

I think that is better than Riley. At least he is doing something to make his team better what is Riley doing? Making a video boy Head Coach, begging Wade to resign so he can do something, trading for a bunch of useless players. I don't care how many rings he won over 20 years ago, he has won one since 1989.

THIS IS FOR LAMAR ODOM ....FROM THE FANS OF THE MIAMI HEAT. yOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO OPT OUT OF OUR CONTRACT IN 2012 AND SIGN FOR MID LEVEL AGAIN AND MAKE EVEN MORE MONEY , NOT TO MENTIO IF JKIDD CAN GET HIS AT 36-37 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU CAN GET! WE NEED YOU TO BE A MAJOR PART OF OUR STARTING LINEUP NOT COME OFF THE BENCH LIKE A SECOND STRINGER...RILEY HAS ALWAYS SAID THERE IS NO PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE THAT HAS THE SKILLS THAT YOU HAVE AT YOUR POSITION. WE WANT TO BATTLE FOR THE FINALS FOR THE NEXT 5-6 YEARS BUT IT STARTS WITH YOU, WITHOUT YOU IT'S NOT POSSIBLE WITH YOU WE ARE INSTAMT CONTENDERS, THINK L.A. WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT YOU?? THEY CAN FIND SOMEONE ELSE WHO THEY DON'T APPRECIATE TO COME OFF THE BENCH AND RIP IN THE PAPERS AND TREAT LIKE CRAP?? THINK ABOUT IT LO...WITH YOU ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOU WHO KNOWS.IN L.A. YOU ARE JUST A PIECE OF THE PUZZLE, HERE YOU ARE THE PUZZLE THAT WITHOUT YOU CAN NOT BE COMPLETED.... CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE, COME BACK TO WHERE IT ALL STARTED AND WITH THE TEAM THAT GAVE YOU THE MONEY YOU HAVE MADE WHEN NO ONE ELSE WOULD...WE APPRECIATE AND NEED YOU!!RILEY WILL HOOK YOU UP AGAIN!! LET'S HAVE SOME MORE FUN, COME BACK TO WHERE YOU FELT THE BROTHERHOOD THAT THE MIAMI HEAT FOSTERS !! DWADE,LO,JO,BEAZ,BOOZ/BOSH AI?...BAM!!! WE CAN PLAY WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD!!! THINK LBJ WOULD THINK REAL HARD ABOUT COMING HERE NEXT YEAR? AND IF NOT, WE DON'T NEED HIM! LAMAR ODOM FAN AND LOYAL HEAT FAN....

MW 07/24 - "BACK FROM VACATION and ready to jump into the offseason frenzy once again. Between bumping into Tyson Chandler on the way out to L.A. and Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds on the ODOM-WADE way back, what did I miss? (By the way, I had no problem finding Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in the middle of the night, but no such luck at all in tracking down Lamar Odom). Apparently not much, other than TONS OF RUMORS, POUNDS OF SPECULATION AND PLENTY OF TRADE AND FREE-AGENCY DISCUSSIONS. BUT NO REAL ACTION when it comes to the Heat upgrading its roster so far.

"dsky0921" 07/24 - "Ira Winderman tends to go a little more in depth with his stories too (not always, but usually). IT'S BEEN A WEEK OR TWO SINCE WALLACE BLOGGED ON HERE and HE BASICALLY WROTE AN ARTICLE ABOUT HOW THE HEAT HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING BUT DIDN'T EVEN MENTION OTHER OPTIONS (i.e. Jamal Tinsley, Jason Williams, etc.). The other options aren't great, but they're at least worth a mention. It just seems like Michael Wallace wrote this in like a minute and didn't care to try to enlighten anyone with his work."

---

Gee. Thank you for confirming you are and always will be The One Bile Left Behind.

Wallace: Returns from vacation, acknowledges lots of discussion, but confirms no real action.

You: Wallace hasn't blogged anything for 2 weeks (wah!), says the Heat haven't done anything, didn't even mention "other options" (i.e., more discussions, wah!) that maybe aren't great (see Wallace, Mike, "no real action" ... WAH!).

Duh.

you're a weird guy heatstroked....i still have no idea what you are saying and you actually took the time to go back to another blog where I posted and change a sentence to caps and then reposted it here so you can talk about gibberish.

Sorry Dzuma I meant Don in my last post.

I not getting exited about any reports speculating where Lamar Odom is going to sign. When it is offically announced which team he signs with, then I'll react. Because only Lamar Odom knows whats the best decesion for himself. He could very well just be using the Heat as leverage with his contract negiotiations with the Lakers, which is apparent. I beleive he is using the Heat as a fallback option. If he really wanted to sign with the Heat, he would already have. Its been about 2 weeks now and he knows all of the dynamics of each situation so I don't know what he's waiting for. (Maybe a higher offer from the Lakers). Thats the only logical explanation for his delay.

heatstroked= blog ratings! Keep it up. If Odom comes to the heat i'll renew my 4 game mini plan package.

if odom comes to the heat, we should trade for caron butler also

I'm in LA to bring odom bac to miami with me lol lol lol. LA fans dnt get mad at me..
8 minutes ago from TweetGenius

That's from DWade's twitter account...hope there's at least a shred of truth in that.

Celtics are going to win the chapsion

I agree that if Odom wanted to come to Miami he would be there. He wants to win more rings but he also wants more money. The latter is the problem.If it was me, I'd take the lakers over the Heat.The bad thing for Odom right now is that the two teams that want him are also the two teams that turned their back on him. Not much security he's feeling right now.But I wouldn't bet my house against him coming to the Heat. If he does I would bet that the Lakers will be regretting it come playoffs & maybe finals. Good luck Miami.

C'mon back to miami..........they want you there
