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.
