    Let me remind you that my source really had no idea about what was going on with odom since he doesn't speak to Odom.

    Only Lamar Odom really knows. All the indications are and were that he was begging the lakers to put those offers back on the table.

    But Riley had not spoken with Lamar odom all week.

    The mood like I said was that we were getting jerked around. This would indeed be a surprise or confirmation of my suspicion that the lakers realized how financially insane it is to committ what would in the end be around 50 to 60 million dollars to what is in essence a 6th man to them.

    ....On Saturday DWade made a public appeal to Lamar Odom via Twitter.....

    Today.....Jorge Sedano reports that Pat Riley was on a plane TODAY to LA to meet with Odom. ....

    and.......

    That Lamar Odom will sign or...re-sign as it were with the Miami Heat.

    check out Twitter ..Jorge Sedano Show. (he used to be a broadcaster for the Heat and is a local Heat insider)

    Lamar Odom watch meter is now at 50% (ELEVATED)

    Dwyane Wade tweeted that he was on his way to LA to bring back Lamar Odom.

    I guess the full court press is on.

    I don't know how he can turn down the reported offer of 24 for 3. It is pretty close to where they were. He turned the 30 for 3 down...there should be consequences.

    If the heat do sign odom then i'm guessing we would be able to only afford wade n a max 2 instead of 2 regular maxs?

    Depends.

    As of now.....It would be Wade AND a MAX for next year.

    it used to be Wade, a MAX and a second tier player.

    not much has changed...adding Odom doesn;t change much. The Heat will still be in the best position of any team next year to make a huge leap forward.

    Today is SOURCE Tuesday but Riley and Wade are in LA and will meet with Lamar Odom tonight ...so I should have ZERO on that front...

    On Boozer..I suspect that nothing has changed...although..if we get Odom..I can guarantee that the Heat will most likely loosen up in negotiations.

    Lakers lowered their offer to Lamar. Lamar agent is gonna get fired. IDIOT. If LO wanted to be a heat he would of signed already. The offer been on the table forever. He tried to play salary poker with Dr. Buss but he doesnt fall for that crap. IMO LO signs with the Lakers at the lower offer and some candy.

    captain obvious.....

    Of course he is leveraging the Heat offer against the Lakers. But if all things are equal...he comes here...THAT is more than clear since he keeps pushing for that 4th year.

    The longer it drags out...the better the Heat's position is.

    That he is even considering taking that much less money from the Heat tells you all you need to know.

    The fact that he OWNS a house in Miami...but RENTS A apartment in LA..tells you a little more.

    If the Lakers cave and give him 27 for 3 or 30 for 3...he signs...any less and the heat still has a chance. and THAT is where we are.

    Just got back....
    not much new info if anything..just some anectdotal stuff.

    On Odom:

    My guy says that we all know just as much as he knows NOW and for that matter...anybody else knows NOW besides Riley, Wade, and Odom.

    The Lakers have offered anywhere between 24-27 mil for 3. I was told that the offer that was being reported and the offer that he was led to believe WAS THE OFFER from the Heat (34 for 5) is INCORRECT. No other detail. But it is not a full locked in 5 years and is rather player friendly. No word on wether the rumor of the 3 voidable years is true.

    Riley AND Wade were in LA.

    No word on wether Lamar Odom is signing or even any NEW news or progress......but My guy is convinced that lamar Odom is signing with the Miami Heat. Odom told Riley that if the lakers did not offer 30 for 3 that he was his. We shall see. I won't tell you EXACTLY what my source said because I think I can't post this on this site without outing my source and it will really make me look like a total ******* if this got posted on other sites.

    One guy on another site used a quote he got indirectly that I can vouch for being completely accurate "in one sense".

    in other words...read between the MANY MANY lines.

    Lamar Odom Watch Meter: [​IMG] (Was 50%) it is Now at: 62% (ELEVATED)

    On Boozer:

    Haven;t spoken to the Jazz in a week. The mood is that if the Heat sign Odom...that the Heat will be more liberal in giving up what the jazz may ask if they do indeed land Odom. "Other players could be a BETTER fit than boozer if the Heat sign odom" that is a direct quote. No special knowledge..just an opinion from somebody close to the situation.

    I thought it was encouraging that Huizenga intercepted Brees en route to New Orleans and we all know how that worked out, but in retrospect I think its better that they landed Brees(for the greater good and all that stuff)

    LOL!! how could I forget!!!

    There is a story (Yahoo) about The heat being "in hot pursuit" of Jamal Tinsley and that they will use their bi-annual exemption on him.

    Story is not true.

    Tinsley clears waivers on Wednesday and the Heat is prohibited by NBA rules to "offer" a contract before a player clears waivers.

    My guess is that Riley will explore it. but it is only a Guess. He will be cheap. he is effective and he is a great fit to come off the bench backing up chalmers.

    yes.

    word around the camp fire is that it is a 1.9 Mil 1 year deal with an option.

    Hoopsworld says the Heat is the only suitor.

    The official contract is 4 for 33. (Lakers CAVED bigtime)

    the last year is an option.

    In the end...Odom's agent only cost him about 5 million.

    What I don;t get is why the Lakers offered that much more money when they knew the heat was the only other team interested and they could only offer the MLE.

    We are a winner. and will be big winners sooner rather than later.


    But it is interesting that he wanted to be with the Lakers so BAD that they had to pay him almost 10 million dollars more for him to stay there....and that was after reducing his offer.

    Lakers (Buss/Anshultz) really wanted him. Dr. Buss want to see the Lakers pass the Boston Celtics in championships. They are just 2 away to tie 3 away to pass. This team is poised for at least 3peat.
