i think some people here are so quick to write players off as a bust its crazy.
My boy thabeet has gotten 5 blks against miami and 4 against, in around 20 mins a game
thabeet was drafted for defense, and hes defending, dont expect much for offense yet.
Is anyone with me on him not being the bust everyone thought he was?
well, he can defenitely block shots. But what else? Number 2 pick is kinda high for just that. He also doesn't play with overpowering physicality on either end of the court. But I did see him not only block shots, but alter some shots as well. Ray threw up a quick floater that missed when he saw Thabeet coming over.
not sure why people are calling him a bust..it was understood that he was gonna be very raw on offense and not do much and that he was brought in to block shots and rebound
I dont think he is a bust , it is just that B Jennings is making Gm's look like fools. Conley wasnt a superstar in college, he had a lot of talent around him.
I for 1 never thought he'll be a bust..I felt picking him at number 2 was way too high...I knew he had limited offensive skills....During the june draft,i was hoping they'd chose Jennings or Evans....Conley has been playing a little better lately..But for them to really reach that next level..They need a better playmaker..Thabeet fits whut the Grizzlies needed..And thats a defensive presence in the middle....His shot blocking ability makes the other team players think twice about entering the paint....
