The Glorious Return of Greg Ostertag?

Ostertag, 36, would like to bless the NBA with his presence once again: “The former Jazz center is attempting an NBA comeback. He even recently worked out for a team. Last week, Ostertag participated in a scrimmage with the Portland Trail Blazers, who are reportedly auditioning big men, including perhaps Jarron Collins, the Oregonian reported … Now 36 years old, Ostertag hasn’t played in the NBA for more than three years, which is why his reported workout was eye-opening.”

    maybe tag and bryon russell should just meet up and reminisce and play one on one with each other. no need to punish themselves and the fans with this nonsense.

    Tag coming back would be comical. He didn’t exactly have game when he retired 3 years ago. I can’t imagine he’s done much improving over that time period.
