Thabeet Gets Another Gig

Thabeet Gets Another Gig

So on the day that Steve Nash became a Laker, four year pro and contender for “Biggest NBA Bust of All Time” Hasheem Thabeet was sneakily given a two year contract by the Oklahoma City Thunder. When signed officially on July the 11th, the Thunder will be the 2009 No. 2 draft pick’s fourth team in as many years.

The UCONN product of Tanzanian decent was chosen by the Grizzlies at the number two spot even though he was very raw offensively and whose primary asset was being a good shot blocker.

The Grizzlies who overlooked players such as James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Steph Curry, Ricky Rubio and Brandon Jennings, palmed off Thabeet to Houston with a first round pick in a trade for Shane Battier on Feb 24 2011. He was then traded again to the Blazers in March 2012 and has now completed his journey (for now) at Oklahoma.

The only upside I can see for the Thunder in this acquisition is that good old saying “you can’t teach height.” Another upside, when battling against the tall timber in the West, Kendrick Perkins, Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison will have a nice and warm bench to sit on.

Yes, I’m a little harsh. I do like to see the fight of an underdog though. Mr Thabeet, prove me wrong!
