With the NBA free agency coming in 5 days and the NBA awards happening last night everyone is still in BBall mode, and most of the time people debate about who the G.O.A.T is but they never debate who are the best players from a City or State. So it’s up to me start it up, what helps is that Ohio has been blessed with some of the best athletes in both basketball and football. Not to mention we are the birthplace of one of the greatest players of all time also the home of probably the best shooter the league has ever seen so the is no doubt that Ohio ranks as one of the top states for NBA players but where they fall on the list is where the debate begins so check this list and let us know what you think and what changes you would make if any
