Thabeet Sent To D-League

Hasheem Thabeet has been sent to the D-League by the Grizzlies, along with Lester Hudson.

Thabeet was the second overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Thabeet now becomes the highest ranked draft pick to play in the D-League.

And people thought Bargnani was a bust....Highest ranked player EVER to play in the D-League? Ouch.

i still think he should be able to make it back as soon as he gets accustomed to the timing of the game. once he does, he'll be a nightmare in the lane.

He was labelled a bust before he even got drated. Just cuz you are tall doesn't make you a good player and so far Thabust is just proving this statement to be correct

I don't doubt what you're saying, but how did so many NBA execs get fooled?

If Memphis didnt take him 2, he probably would have gone 3, no?

Yea it's cuz he had "potential". Memphis prolly knew that he would be a long project, at maybe he'll work out but at the rate he is going, he'll prolly be one of the biggest busts ever

was he selected early? yes it seems so. what's done is done and none on that matters. just because he won't live up to his potential as a second overall pick doesn't mean that he still can't be an effective player in the league.

and from what i remember, people questioned his strength coming out of college. that's something that can be improved. i watched him play, regardless if he ends up as DPOY, all-star starter or even bench player, he'll be a good asset once he catches up to speed.

Thabeet didn't start playing basketball until he was fifteen. FIFTEEN! Are you kidding me?!? I can't believe some people thought he could be a force just 8 years after he first picked up a basketball...

Well, if you look at it in another perspective, who else should Memphis have taken? Evans and Harden wouldn't fit because the Grizz have Mayo. Unless Conley was dealt, Jennings or Rubio wouldn't fit either.

Agreed, staying at Uconn for a few more years would've helped him a lot, but hes already 23, and if he stayed for the full 4 years, he would 27, and not many teams are going to draft a 27 year old rookie...

I wouldn't blame this entirely on, Hasheem. He hasn't really been given an opportunity to excel and Memphis already have Gasol and Randolph, making the draft pick look even more terrible.

His numbers aren't that bad at all. Having said that, I've never watched him play in a game. He's still not a colossal bust, he's a young big man who's probably a little lost at this level of play.
