Oklahoma City Thunder power forward Nick Collison is moonlighting this season as guest contributor to Balls Out, GQ magazine’s sports blog.

His first post focused less on how he keeps Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard from getting too low in the post, and more about the actual profession of a workhorse-type mid-level NBA player.

Included were some of the basic mechanics of his financial preparation for the recent NBA lockout and some ruminations on the “should-I-stay-or-should-I-go?” conflict that so many players had to sort through this summer.

Collison has a great sense of humor, as he proved in his 1,600-word post. On the topic of spending much of the summer with his 5-year-old daughter, he wrote: “My mindset quickly shifted from things like ‘How is the pick and roll coverage with Jason Kidd handling different from Jason Terry?’ to thoughts like ‘I hope the other kids are still too young to make fun of her hair because I sure as hell have no idea what to do with it.’”

Chicken-Fried News sure looks forward to viewing the 2011-12 NBA season through Collison-tinted goggles.
