Thabeet's work ethic makes him an intriguing prospect. He conquered a lot of his weaknesses he had last year in his 07-08 sophomore season. He'll never be a franchise player, but definitely will be a starter in the NBA if he continues to keep his work ethic that has gotten him far to one of the more elite big men in the NCAA.
You said it yourself, the only thing you seen Thabeet do is block a shot, then you changed the channel to the Playgirl channel and stayed on it for a couple of hours. Since you missed out, I'll let you know Thabeet can run the floor and isn't a stiff. He's one of the rare 7"2-7"5 giants that can move with the other position players which attracts uptempo teams that need that shot blocker who can run the floor(Phoneix, Denver, Golden State).
Do your research.
Your vocabulary is pretty elementary for a 28 year old college drop out. Is "sucks" the most logical explanation you have that Thabeet can't produce in the NBA?
Thabeet is actually the opposite of Hibbert. Thats like saying Samuel Dalembert and Zydrunas Ilgaukus are similar players.
• Incredible Size
• True center
• Ability to run floor
• Explosiveness off feet
• Gets out in transition
• Shoots a high percentage
• Solid free throw shooter
• Ability to draw fouls
• Confidence improved
• Game-changing presence defensively
• Excellent shot-blocker
• Only playing basketball for few years
I like how much Thabeet has worked on his game and improved. From his FT shooting to his positioning. He strikes me as a coaches dream. A kid who really feels fortunate to be able to play the game.
There are also GM's telling Draft Gurus and Scouts that Thabeet is a LOCK for the lottery.
Hibbert right now is much more refined offensively than Thabeet. He has good post moves--he knows how to pass from low+high post. He is much more ready than Thabeet in YEAR 1. BUT I think that Thabeet's if given the same instruction and time to develop like Bynum has--has a much bigger ceiling. He's faster much more athletic and has great stamina with no pre-disposition to put on weight like Hibbert. His physical being is more taylor made for the faster NBA. His brute force under the basket is going to be unstoppable by most players even in the NBA. He's a STRONG 7-3 and he will get stronger--not necessary to put on more weight. He's able to go up with guys draped on him and dunk with authority. Hibbert--he will have to WORK hard to keep his weight down and will not be best suited for teams who run.
You see Diop because all African centers are the same to you.
Do your research and stop making bad post.
You're really bringing nothing to this thread or discussion on this draft prospect. Just another attempt to ride my dick in another thread. You've got my attention, now go to sleep pleased. NBA Draft, HS and College prospects are one of my prime interest in following basketball, and for me to have an idiot like you come in here and bore the **** out of me really gets me to rolling a blunt.
Another loss by Pancakes, yawn.
You're a clown, you wake up in the morning with a schedule to log in KO.com and lose debates left and right.
You got tired of being delusional and wrong now? Just be a man for once and don't be so ***** to co-sign with my facts, you're really taking this personal and being bitter about every little thing I say.
i know this post is in the wrong place, but does anyone know why nba draft net gives thabeets rebounding a 9/10. on the same topic why eddy curry got a 9/? for d on his draft net profile

Thabeet will be an upgrade to what we have now. Yeah Eddy Curry was hyped coming out of high school, but he can't block a shot for his life.
Thabeet's and Curry styles are very different.
A man is a person who accepts a challenge not one who cries and runs away.
Grow up cause it's just not that serious.
