Some of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s most important contributions come from reserve big man Nick Collison, the team’s elder statesman at the grizzled age of… 30. A few minutes after OKC advanced to the Western Conference Finals, SLAM Magazine’s Lang Whitaker (and friend-of-the-Balls-Out-blog) asked Collison if he’d be willing to take us along for the ride via email over the next few days.
Lang Whitaker to Nick Collison, Sunday afternoon: Yo…Congrats on the win. I was asked to write something for GQ.com about you guys. If we did a photo shoot, what theme would you want to go with?
Collison: Probably Medieval Times chic. Like Braveheart.
