Or Joyce DeWitt (Three's Company) born in Wheeling?

Or Joann Dru born in Logan WV, but grew up in Wheeling and was a major actress in the 1950's?

Or Hawkshaw Hawkins, a Grand Ol' Opry star?

Or Ira 'Rat' Rodgers, WVU all-American football player in 1919 and a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Or NASA Astronaut Jon McBride?

Or, for God's Sake... Pearl Buck, first woman author to win the Nobel Prize for Literature?

Neither Lady Gaga or Charles Manson were born in WV. Shouldn't the guy who's the LOGO for the NBA be mentioned? Pretty sure the trademark is known thruout the world. Possibly moreso than any other sports logo next to NIKE.
