Greg Ostertag - Ostertag unretired last year and joined the Texas Legends of the D-League, but was badly out of shape. He averaged 4.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in 10 games, before his knee - the reason he had retired in the first place - refused to go any further. Just as the aforementioned Chris Mihm has had to watch Jeff Withey overtake his Big 12 blocked shots record, Ostertag recently had to watch Withey passed his Kansas school record for them too.

Someone on Twitter has pretended to be a racist version of Ostertag for nearly three years now.

- Greg Ostertag

Ostertag retired in 2006, and announced this year that he regretted it. In his time away from the game, Ostertag fished, hunted, played golf and hockey, and found a new love; cake making. But he missed the game, and attempted a comeback this offseason when he worked out with the Blazers. But it didn't work out, and now he's back to doing what he was doing before; the fun things that become available to you when you earn lots of money and don't piss it all away. It can't be bad.
