He's from Pittsburgh, but went to OSU; spent the first 4 yrs of his career in Philly, then was traded here. Now he's back in Philly. To me, the only home-grown aspect is he went to OSU. Good luck to him in Philly, but I think we got the better end of the deal.
I agree BO, the youngsters are pretty damn exciting to watch already, and they're only going to get better.
