Perhaps Oden, only 26, is determined to catch on with another NBA team. He stayed healthy, albeit in limited playing time in 23 games, during his stay in Miami. Oden's latest setback is legal, as he has been charged with battery resulting in serious bodily injury and two misdemeanor battery counts after reportedly punching his girlfriend in the face.
