Starting the year before, in July 2003, Jacobs allegedly forged the name of Slam Dunk treasurer Jim Powell on 11 checks worth $56,400, and the name of board member Drexel Ball on a $9,000 check.

I grew up in the same neighborhood as Bobby.As Sam said, he was a real good athlete and I know all us kids a few years younger than him looked up to him, big time.His family was fantastic, his Dad being a major leaguer with the Philadelphia A's.Bob almost made it to the majors as an umpire, getting I think to AA or maybe AAA.He screwed up.I hope he can pay back the money quickly and get himself together.Absent the wrongdoing here, if indeed he did something, he has a lot to offer.Good luck, Bobby and prayers to you and your Mom and Dad.Some of us boneheads from Milford still see you as that crazy ass point guard and smalltown hero.Posted by: samm - Wed Jul 18, 2007 3:50 pmI knew Bobby Jacobs from high school.He was a great athlete from a good family.When his younger brother Tommy died, Bobby took it very hard and it seemed some things started to spiral downward for him.I was shocked to see the mug shot of him (wboc.com).I would not have recognized him if we had met on the street.There has to be a lot more to this sad story, and I am sure it will all come out in the upcoming trial.To the people who feel they must joke and post snide remarks on the forum: remember that except for the grace of God, this could be happening to you or someone in your family.Bobby must pay for his crimes, but I hope he can now get the help he obviously needs.
