    Being from Lima (born and raised) and graduating from OSU, it bothers me to find out when my hometown heros aren't doing so good and making Lima look bad...By the way Jamar is doing Lima justice..

    But I'm sure many of you aren't suprised by Greg Simpson, the former Mr. Basketball and B10 Frosh of the year was arrested yesterday.:smash:

    Greg Simpson
    Former Ohio State star Greg Simpson, 33, was arrested after a traffic stop in Logan County Monday morning around nine-thirty.
    The sheriff's office stopped Simpson for reportedly speeding on Route 33 near County Road 10.
    Shortly afterwards, he was arrested and charged with drug trafficking, failure to notify an officer of a concealed carry permit, driving under suspension, and speed.
    Authorities found 165 grams of marijuana in Simpson's trunk.
    Also, deputies recovered a loaded .380 Bersa gun and a digital scale with marijuana residue on it.
    Simpson was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
    The former Lima Senior star was named Ohio's Mr. Basketball in 1991 and 1992.

    True - so did many others, but you know what I mean...

    Either way, back to Greg - his signature off-the-backboard dunk was very very cool

    Apart from LeBron, Greg was the best high school basketball player I had the pleasure of watching.

    For selfish reasons, I wish we would have kept his nose clean. He was fun to watch on the hardwood.

    Not surprising the path his life went down.

    I have to agree with GSimp being the best Bball player I seen in person besides Lebron, especially in Ohio. I remember when I was a kid I seen Jim Jackson and Greg Simpson face off in HS when GSimp was a frosh and Jimmy was a Senior..These were the good ol days. I have a friend who has alot Greg's old games at Lima Senior on VHS.

    Greg was awesome and I remember that 'Nerk' game as well. As good as he was I would have taken JJ any day of the week though.

    Sad he couldn't sty out of trouble
