Default Thabeet or Thabust?

I haven't heard much on him, and he was the second drafted. I didn't see him included in the top 10 rookies, and his summer league stats weren't impressive.

Do you think hes a bust?

Blake Griffin at halftime had a double double. Thabeet at halftime had 2 point and 2 rebounds or so?

I was proved wrong before when I said Thabeet was a bust.

7+ Foot players take a while to develop because they need to find new ways to play instead of relying on their height and athleticism, and besides this is a soft draft and the only players that are expected to make an impact right away is Griffin, Rubio and Harden.

they say summer leagues not meant to find out whos the best avialable player through stas but instead$,
its to find who can play and who CANT play at the next level
in this case, Hasheem Thabeet can't play!
I saw him being a bust long before this, any of you that follow NCAA ball should know what I mean!
General Managers see 7-3, blocks, potential and they go nuts

I thought I heard Jay Bilas say that this was typically a guy that could step in and play right away, less of a gamble compared to other lottery picks that are more based on potential.

He will be good but he will not be worth the 2nd pick
