There are three things that come to mind when people think of Indiana. Yes, there is a lot of corn, and it is home to the biggest and most famous race in the world, the Indianapolis 500. Perhaps the thing we are known best for, though, is basketball.
While the parks in New York City and New Jersey claim to be the No. 1 spot for basketball, many still believe that Indiana is still the king of the sport. Times have changed, I know. The high school basketball here is not like what we all remember from the movie "Hoosiers." Not every player in the state is like Ricky Roe from the movie "Blue Chips." Bobby Knight and Gene Keady are both long gone, but the talent is still here.
With the recent trade sending George Hill back to his home state Indiana Pacers, where he played high school and college ball, it got me thinking about the talent that is in the NBA right now from around the area. Some of these players on this list played high school basketball in Indiana, while others played college ball here. Some, like Hill, actually did both.
