I got a chance to chat with new Thunder big man Cole Aldrich Wednesday. I was VERY impressed. He hasnt hit a single shot or grabbed a single rebound yet, but hes already made a bunch of fans.

Well spoken. Respectful. You can tell hes a bright kid. And he was immediately a hit with the kids at the Thunder Youth Camp who were more than happy to have their shots blocked by the former Jayhawk.

Sam Presti got the kind of guy he wanted. Now well see if he can play. Its fine to be a nice guy in the community. But he better have a mean streak in the paint.
