Hasheem Thabeet is a name most of you no longer even recognize. He was once a number two overall pick in the NBA draft though, a 7'3" giant out of UConn that many thought would be the next great big man. Ultimately, he sucked, and would be out of the league in just a few short years. People surrounding him called him lazy, said he wasn't in love with the game with basketball, and questioned his dedication to his craft. Thabeet is looking to make a comeback after spending the last two years out of the NBA, he say's he's been training really hard and that making it back to the NBA is his #1 goal. This sounds a whole lot like a Greg Oden/Robert Swift comeback story, you got all these guys who think they can come back, and the end result is always the same, they're the same basketball player they were to begin with, and nothing has changed. I don't even know why these guys hype up their return, they're ultimately just setting themselves up for failure because no one reads the story and actually thinks Thabeet is going to make a comeback, and be the star player he was supposed to be coming out of college. With that being said, I don't even think Thabeet is delusional enough to think he could be that player, I think he's just looking to make a roster, pick up a couple paychecks, and leave the NBA with a sense of dignity. I'd love to see Thabeet play in the NBA again, I know he wouldn't be getting more than five minutes a game at max because he would be a detriment to the to the team success, but I'd like to see him pick up this consolation prize. Why not root for the underdog right, I mean this guy has had it rough enough, imagine being the number two overall pick and just being absolutely terrible, never showing an ounce of promise, that's got to be tough on the guy, I don't care how much money he made along the way. I hope Thabeet accomplishes his dream, I doubt it will actually happen, but maybe just maybe he sneaks his way onto a roster, maybe has a decent game here and there, and BAM, a dumb organization like the Lakers will give him a huge payday like they did with Movgov, that's today's NBA for ya. It's a league with a lot of money so he's got the right idea trying to come back, gotta respect his hustle.
