Thunder rookie gets going with a huge putback. Posted by Matt Moore

Cole Aldrich was seen as a questionable first-round pick by many, like me, because of his limited athelticism and mobility. The Thunder took him and added him to a very versatile frontcourt that still has members out with injury. Last night, while the team got blasted by the Jazz, Cole Aldrich got his first bucket of his career and got it going in style, just as Tas Melas of The Basketball Jones noted this morning .

Also of note; this game was Cole's 22nd birthday. Not a bad way to start your NBA career - on your birthday, with a put-back dunk.
