While chatter simmers between Greg Oden’s camp and the Miami Heat over a comeback for the 7-footer, our hero decided it was time to get away from the rehab for some relaxation. That meant Greg packed a bag and went to Kalahari, the Sandusky, Ohio indoor water park notorious for screaming kids and drunk parents.
Imagine for a minute that you’re in the hot tub and a 7-foot black dude wearing a “Come at me bro” shirt starts strolling your way. Imagine for a minute that you’ve Googled “Greg Oden NSFW” and know what is coming your way.
That’s exactly what happened over the weekend at Kalahari.
Oden, likely bored by an obscure life of bouncing from Columbus bar to Columbus club and not about to jump on a flight to Key Largo, seemed to fit right in with the kids. He was just a little taller and blacker than the lily white Ohioans.
If the Heat are serious about getting Oden into the team’s facility, it seems like they shouldn’t waste time. He’s one slip on a lazy river step away from another knee surgery.
