Hasheem Thabeet’s Impressive D-League Debut
A lot of people have rushed to labeling Memphis Grizzlies Hasheem Thabeet a bust because he was sent down to the NBA Developmental League. I know it’s not a good look especially being the number 2 overall draft pick and you might not have agreed with him being picked that high on draft night.
Lets just keep a few Thabeet factors in mind before labeling him a bust, like: he hasn’t been playing basketball his whole life, Marc Gasol is averaging 15 points and 10 rebounds a night, and why not keep him in tune or basketball shape instead of riding the 12th man spot on the bench. I know you’ll might not agree but that’s just what I see when I’m sitting down at the table.
Thabeets final D-League debut numbers was 18 points, 13 rebounds, 4 blocks and 2 assists.
