Ostertag spent most of his NBA career with the Utah Jazz and was one of the the best shot-blockers in the league, swatting a shot every 11.4 minutes of playing time.

"I know there's a lot of naysayers out there who think I couldn't play when I was younger and how am I going to be able to play now? But I'm going to give myself a month or two to get in really good shape and see what happens.''
