Buckeye Hoops in the Real World

basketball_iconTaking a break from the football season for a minute, let’s talk a little baloncesto. (That’s basketball if you didn’t already know). The NBA season is just around the corner. While I’m wondering how the Cavs are going to do this season, I’ve also been wondering what’s going on with all the former Buckeyes in the NBA. Luckily, the Buckeye Ballers Blog has us covered. A snippet:

It is Greg Oden’s world, and we are all just living in it. Well, maybe not yet. But if summer reports from Columbus & Las Vegas, as well as the recent reports from the Blazers training camp are any indication..Oden is going to quiet a lot of doubters this upcoming season. The big man is slimmer, more agile, light on his feet, and overall more comfortable on the floor.

Buckeye Ballers is also faithfully following ex-Buckeyes that are playing overseas, mostly in Europe. Another snippet:

29 Year old Brent Darby will play for Limoges CSP Elite of the France Pro B league this season. Like Penn & Johnson, Darby has also enjoyed a very solid european career. He played for Eldo Castera in Italy last season.

    I just saw that Daeqwon Cook got his contract picked up by the Miami Heat and is only 1 of 2 heat players under contract after this year.

    Who would have thought he would have such a good start to his NBA career.

  2. Daequan is definitely the last member of the Thad Five that I thought would be successful in the NBA. Good for him, but the Heat might struggle this year.
