HOW IS THE top pick in the NBA draft spending his summer? Hanging out at his mom's house in Indiana, eating Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp and working his way through a giant piece of watermelon that he keeps in her fridge. That's what we learn from the 3 1/2-minute video tour of his mother's apartment that Greg Oden posted on yardbarker.com, where he writes a blog. MTV Cribs it ain't, but it is a pretty interesting look at how the other half lives before they become the other half. (Oden will move into posher digs when he heads to Portland in the fall.) Best scene in the shaky, handheld tour: a framed picture of a young Oden with some big hair. "That's me with a 'fro," says the engaging Oden—before quickly jerking the camera away and adding, "Don't look at that."
