Artis Gilmore responds to comparison to Greg Oden


First time post - long time multi-x a day lurker

After reading the Kevin Pelton Computer ga-ga over Greg Oden post here: GAGA , I thought the comments would be very interesting and they were.  One thread in particular that peaked my interest was started by AK1984 regarding a comparison to Artis Gilmore.  Now I have to admit I've forgotten about Artis Gilmore so I had to do some research to see if the comparison really rang true.  My journey:

Step 1- Basketball Reference  - where I looked to check stats and found Artis' amazing stats - if Greg hits we're set

Step 2 - Youtube - any videos where I could check the stylistic comparison - not many videos (AK1984 - any other sources?)

Step 3 - See any news on Artis Gilmore - where is he now, what's he doing, etc.   This is where it gets interesting, I found Artis' website and link to his Artis' blog and realized that he blogs and no one really comments (so unlike blazersedge)  so I figured I'd see what the man himself would say if I posed a few questions regarding Greg Oden.   First question would you be willing to help train/guide Greg if asked - not sure if Greg needs it, or wants it, just wondering if he would be willing to do it.  Second part, how do you think Greg compares to you.

I expected a personal email, a one liner, or nothing at all.
