08:08 AM ET 12.28 | You just can't teach height, and, for that reason, Greg Ostertag will draw attention in NBA circles. [Ostertag] will begin a comeback Thursday night with the Texas Legends that he hopes will lead to the NBA. The National Basketball Development League team based in Frisco came to an agreement with the 7-2 Ostertag this afternoon and he will make his debut Thursday against Rio Grande Valley in a home game at Dr Pepper Arena. He's also expected to play Friday against Tulsa. Ostertag spent most of his NBA career with the Utah Jazz and was one of the most the best shot-blockers in the league, swatting a shot every 11.4 minutes of playing time. "I missed playing," Ostertag said. "I shouldn't have quit when I did."

Did you miss the money? Why would you miss playing, when all you do is only to stand around the court

He's coming back since Shaq is out the league and his chances of getting ****-slapped again on the court have dropped significantly...

At 7'2" if he can still move well he may find a spot. He could be the missing piece for Miami?

Deja Vu time again...

If you thought he was out of shape at 32, wait until you see him at 38.

In the developmental league, are they allowed to use a golf cart to get up and down the court?

Actually he was one of the few players would could block Shaq consistently. Not that Shaq struggled against him, but Ostertag did frustrate him.

There's a lot of hating going on here. If some GM gives me a contract who are we to question. No Darryl you have been permanently exiled to the planet Lovetron
