Greg Oden keeps it low in Columbus

What a swinging bachelor pad Greg Oden and Mike Conley's rental in Columbus must be. Two NBA players, already legends at Ohio State, kicking it with coeds in hot Columbus summer sun. The all night parties and the sophomoric hijinks must be off the hook, right? Maybe not, at least according to Conley.
[Conley] is sharing a rental with Oden, who also returned to school while training for his rookie season with the Portland Trail Blazers. Oden missed last season after having knee surgery.

"He's the same dude, sleeping all the time and doing nothing," Conley joked of his former high school teammate and college roommate. "I'm like, 'Hey, let's go here,' and he's like, 'Aw, I just want to go to bed, Mike. I just want to relax.'

"That's him. He hasn't changed at all. But that's good to see because I know a lot of people can change with the different things that are thrown at us."

G.O. has stayed busy this summer, so it's no surprise he'd rather catch a nap than catch frisbee's in the quad. From hamming it up at the ESPYs to going geek at the San Diego Comic-Con to riding in the back of a pickup at the Junior Rose Festival Parade, Oden has keep his offseason steady moving.

So if you're visiting Ohio State this summer, keep it down. Greg's trying to sleep.
