GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The day after he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, the Grand Rapids Drive congratulated J.K. Simmons by posting a picture of him sporting a team shirt on their Facebook page.

Simmons, 60, won the award Sunday for his performance in Whiplash.   It was the Detroit native’s first Oscar win.

The photo was initially posted last summer as part of a promotional effort by the West Michigan basketball team.
