Congrats to David Lighty. I hope all goes well for you in Italy. David said, "Atlanta and Phoenix were two good options for me. They still are." Personally, I hope to see him in a Suns uniform someday soon.:)

Great news for David Lighty to be able to play in the Euroleague. He can continue to work on his basketball skills, maybe learn some Italian, and tour Europe, all while earning a six figure salary. Not a bad starter job for a recent OSU graduate.

Congratulations David. Stay healthy and enjoy your time in Europe.

Can you send me a link to your college basketball stats? Oh that's right you don't have any. Just another loser sports fan who likes tearing down athletes you can't measure up to.
