I still can't believe Thabeet was drafted second overall. I seriously can't name a single person who thought that kid would pan out. He had bust written all over him.

He's not even going to be the back-up center more than likely. That'll be Cole Aldrich and, even then, Collison and Ibaka may log more minutes at center than Aldrich and Thabeet if Perry Jones comes along and shows he's deserving of 12-15 minutes a game.

JUST because he's 7'3 doesn't "Add length". I mean, I hope he does well but he hasn't shown anything that would warrant him being a role player in this league.

LMAO and did someone seriously make some African connection with Ibaka/Thabeet?

Could you please quote all the posts from Thunder fans saying they expect good thins from Thabeet next year and think he'll be a contributor?

Seriously, what Thunder fans are saying this? We all know what we signed him for, and that's to be our 3rd string center for less than $1MM a year, which is going to be cheaper than last year's 3rd string center.

I guess this is what turning into a contender does? You sign a 3rd string center and 11th or 12th man, and not only does a thread get made about it, but it gets a sticky.

Runs the floor better than any other 7-3 guy I'd imagine. 6 fouls, with a block a bucket and a board or two is what I would expect. If he wasn't such a puss he would be great to hack opposing big men but he prefers the touch fouls. And getting thrown over Blair's back.

It'll be a contest between him and Durant on who can lift less.

Its interesting how Roy Hibbert improves to be an all-star caliber center while Thabeet is gonna be a bust.

This trade is hard Thabeet and puts OKC at the top of the Western Conference for the foreseeable future

Cole Aldrich sucks. I think he'll jump him in the rotation, and/or we'll end up giving up on Cole and sending him to Charlotte like our last 2 bigs.
