Default Grange: This flight is delayed

AUSTIN, Texas -- All eyes are on Tristan Thompson. The fourth-overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft is standing at the front of his minority leadership studies class in room 2202 of the Jackson Geological Sciences Building at the University of Texas. It's Thompson's first day of class after returning to school in Austin for his sophomore year, and he's been asked to describe himself using three adjectives.

Playing icebreaker games at UT isn't what the basketball phenom from Brampton, Ont., expected to be doing this fall. Thompson should have signed a three-year $10.3-million contract in early July, spent the summer preparing for his rookie campaign with the Cavaliers in an NBA summer league, and then set up in Cleveland last month. The Cavs are hoping the six-foot-nine forward will help turn around a team that was an Eastern Conference-worst 19-63 last season, the first after LeBron decided to take his talents from Lake Erie.
