Good move for Lighty. Who knows how long it will be before the NBA plays again and there are no guarantees for him anyway. Might as well put some coin in his pocket and keep ballin'

Congratulations David Lighty. Best wishes for you in Italy. Hope you get the attention of some NBA teams, particularly one named the Phoenix Suns.:)

P.S.- Some of us still care alot about OSU basketball, even with all of the trouble and attention the football team has gotten.

I too wish David Lighty the best in Italy. It is a pay check for doing what you like to do, which in my view beats a 9-5 job.

Smart choice...go over there and do well and see what happens with the lockout. If you perform over there well, you will find your way into the NBA.

Very true. I have always been a basketball fan of the Buckeyes, along with the football team. I really enjoyed last season and the 2006-2007 season. Matta has had some really good teams and hopefuly, that trend will continue.
