Default Hasheem "the Dream" Thabeet.

I was thinking if Hakeem Olajuwon will be the last great player out of Africa, but then the name of Hasheem Thabeet came up to my mind. They are very similar in my opinion, especially if you compare that they both started playing basketball at the age of 15. Their names rhyme, so "the Dream" fits well to both. The only different I see is Hasheem is bigger 7'3 vs. 7'0, and Hasheem is Tanzanian but Hakeem is Nigerian. And meybe Hakeem was 1st pick but Hasheem 2nd pick, so not that much pressore on Hash.

If we compare their first year in the NBA it is quite obvious who started out quicker.

Hakeem Olajuwon started every game of the rookie season, averaging about 11.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steal, 2.7 blocks, 2.9 turnovers, 4.2 personal fouls and 20.6 points in 35.5 minutes, and .538 FG%.

Hasheem Thabeet started 13 games and performed in 64 games for Memphis in rookie season. He averaged about 3.6 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.2 steals, 1.3 blocks, 2.4 personal fouls and 3.1 points in 13 minutes, and .588 FG%.

You can see that Hasheem played 22,5 minutes fewer per game than Hakeem. So if one multiplies Hasheem's stats by 2,73 you find his stats for every 35.5 minutes. You get 9.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 3.5 blocks, 6.5 personal fouls and 8.4 points in 35.5 minutes, and .588 FG%

Hasheem's stats can also be compared with slow starter, now MVP PG Steve Nash, who had worse stats than Hasheem.

So one may say that Hasheem is utter rubbish right now, but you can see by comparing his stats with Steve Nash that he might become one of the leagues elite in a couple of years time. And if you compare his multiplied number with Hakeems numbers you see that he isnt far off, and remember Hasheem "the Dream" was 2nd pick and Hakeem "the Dream" was 1st pick.


Hakeem "the Dream" Olajuwon.


Steve "the point-guard" Nash.


Hasheem "the Dream"? Thabeet

Read the post. I sincerely believe and hope that Hasheem Thabeet can become serious when he leaves the lousy management in Memphis.

It's not just a troll. I really want Hasheem to become good player. I think the management in Memphis is keeping them down. And I think he should maybe practice with Hakeem next summer, and come back as a good quality center. Because they are very similar in every aspect, size. Only thing Hash needs is good coaching, and best coaching for him I think is Hak.

To show that while you can't get going well enough in your rookie year (and sophomore) you still can have a name in the NBA.

Have you actually seen Hakeem play? His footwork and skill is top-notched while you're comparing to a guy who can't make lay-ups and constantly fouls.

I was a regular at The Summit from 1988-1995 until I had to move to my native Iceland. I have since followed his career fold, and then I am trying to follow Hasheem Thabeet now.

So you are comparing Thabeet to Olajuwon instead of Mutombo? Even the Mutombo comparison is becoming a stretch right now. Thabeet hasn't gotten much praise on improving, especially on the offensive end.

While I want and believe Thabeet will be a good defensive player that can actually play a full game and get you some garbage buckets..

Even I find this a pathetic attempt at trolling.

Hasheem needs a guy like Hakeem to mentor him, Give Hasheem regular training sessions with Hakeem over the next couple of years and I guarantee he will improve a lot
