    Something tells me Isiah is going to try to win just to spite the Knicks cause he knows he's getting fried.

    Also why do you have Thabeet in a Knick uniform? He's awful.

    From what I saw he can block a shot but besides that he's bad defensively and a poor rebounder.

    Thabett is a 7"3 athletic, agile center with great work ethic. He was an awful freshmen, but I'm going to say with your assessment on Thabeet you seem to follow as much college basketball as you do with the Knicks(zero to none).

    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.

    Thabeet sucks. I saw UCONN play a few games this year, he's like a defensive version of Hibbert. Has no instinct for the game, is slow laterally, a poor rebounder and his offensive game is awful. He just doesn't look like a basketball player, even the shots he makes you feel like he could've just as easily missed. He was also terrible against a small San Diego team in the tourney. Probably a first rounder because of his size and ability to run up and down the court. You see a NBA starter, I see Desagna Diop. One thing is certain he should stay in school and continue to improve.

    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.

    Thabeet's profile:
    Incredible Size
    True center
    Frame
    Wingspan
    Mobility
    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
    Upside


    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.

    So is this your way of saying that you actually haven't seen him play?

    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.

    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.

    Thabeet>Curry

    I haven't lost anything to you burrito breath so relax yourself. I don't take anything personal papa but I do think you add nothing to this website with your antics. You're neither knowledgeable nor funny. The facts your provide are worthless and the insults you let fly are cheap.

    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.

    Still waiting for an answer to that question.
