I hope all three of these guys are signed by an NBA team. They all seem to be fine young men. They brought me so much pleasure as I watched them mature as players and, much motor importantly, mature as human beings.

Hope they're successful in the NBA - but let's not encourage any of them to get tattoos.

Yeah that tattoo line was more than a little odd.

I really hope these guys get their shot and make a team. They all have a great work ethic and are smart kids. Best of luck to all three!

Good luck David, Jon and Dallas in the NBA Draft tonight. Hope Each of you get to realize your dream of playing in the NBA.

Thanks for all you did for the Buckeye basketball team during your OSU careers.

Watched the draft last night. Happy for Jon shocked that Lighty was not drafted. I guess the NBA does not value character, hard work, leadership, great defense and unselfishness. I am sure he will end up playing somewhere in the NBA or Europe but if not, I know a lot of corporations
that can use an employee and graduate of TOSU like David.

Yeah, unfortunately defense isn't important in the NBA. Main reason why I don't get into it. Everything you learn about basketball your entire life goes out the window once you hit the NBA.
