Default Ostertag seeks NBA comeback

The last guy you'd expect to see on skates is 7-foot-2, nearly 300 pounds, bakes cakes, has a crew cut and a Texas twang and still believes he can play in the NBA. On most Wednesday nights, Greg Ostertag can be found in the Ice Den in Scottsdale, playing forward in a no-checking, men's hockey league. "I know I can still play," said Ostertag, whose wife is from the Valley. "It's just a matter of getting back into shape. I can still play. I can put in 10 or 15 minutes a game, get some rebounds and block some shots." Ostertag is not serious enough to ask the Suns for a tryout. He figures with Shaquille O'Neal around and Robin Lopez having just finished his rookie season, they don't need him. But somebody does, he believes. "Young teams aren't going to pick me up," Ostertag said. "A veteran team looking for somebody to give them 10-15 minutes, go in there and bang with other guys, that would be the team."

Ostertag digs hockey, longs for NBA

More big white men serving as fodder for more posters for LeBron/Kobe/Wade etc. in the NBA... I wouldn't mind.
