After Hasheem Thabeet named his Twitter page, HasheemTheDream, it seemed like he was a starting center for the Grizzlies and will be a superstar, right? No, not at all. But Thabeet knows his role when he is backing up Marc Gasol: Protecting the rim.
"Even if I’m not going to block your shot, I’m going to intimidate you," Thabeet tells The Commercial-Appeal. "I’m going to challenge you. I have to keep doing what I do. The coaches are always telling me, ‘Don’t go out there trying to do things you’ve never done before. Do what you know.’ So I try to challenge every shot."
NBA Players, watch out for this kid, he’s going to be beast. Even if he ripped off Hakeem Olajuwon’s name for his Twitter.
