Video: Ohio State Recognizes Former Buckeyes As NBA Season Tips Off

With the 2017-18 NBA season tipping off this evening with a TNT doubleheader that includes both the defending champion Golden State Warriors and the Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers, the Ohio State basketball team shared a video montage of the four Buckeyes in the league.

That includes Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, Sacramento Kings center Kosta Koufos, Brooklyn Nets shooting guard D'Angelo Russell and Portland Trail Blazers guard/forward Evan Turner.

You'll notice the tweet has the tag line #DevelopedHere, which is borrowed from the football program. Probably a good idea to highlight the Buckeyes' success at sending players to the league, as the team looks to rebound from its worst season since 2002-03.
