2nd overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft
He's probably my 2nd favorite Rookie in the NBA after Blake Griffin.
I was really impressed with his performance in the NCAA Tournament last year after he averaged 13.8 ppg, 10.6 rpg, and 4.2 bpg.
Thabeet is one of the tallest player in the NBA, and I think he has the potential to lead the NBA in Shot Blocks in the near future.
National Defensive Player of the Year (2008, 2009)
co-Big East Player of the Year with Pitt's DeJuan Blair
All American 2nd Team 2008, 2009
2007 All-Big East Rookie Team
I am not really a fan of the Grizzlies, but I am going to watch some Grizzlies games because of OJ Mayo, and Hasheem Thabeet.
