Greg Oden swats a shot from LeBron James into the stands (VIDEO)

Aug 3, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, Greg Oden has chosen to make his NBA comeback with the Miami Heat next season.

If things get too hectic for Oden in the Heat locker room, or LeBron James tries to invoke some good-natured hazing upon his new teammate, all Oden needs to do is point the league MVP to this highlight from a few years back, where he can be seen swatting a shot from James into the stands.

Help-side blocked shots aren’t normally too much to get excited about, as the offensive player usually has no idea that another defender is in a position to rotate over and provide the requisite help. But this one in particular might help Oden in his new situation, considering the fact that he hasn’t graced an NBA roster since the end of the 2010 season.
