Sizing up Thabeet
We asked ESPN NBA analyst Tim Legler to dissect five areas of Hasheem Thabeet: →MOTOR: I think he’s got a good motor. He seems like he plays hard. That’s what I look for. →HEART: That’s a tough thing to categorize unless you see him every day. That’s the kind of question I’d have to be around a guy to say what I think of his heart. →DETERMINATION: Yeah, I think he’s determined. I’d definitely say he’s a guy that wants to win. That’s a big factor. →PASSION: Hard to tell. When you’ve seen a guy limited times it’s tough to say. →TOUGHNESS: That’s a question mark. Because when you look at what DeJuan Blair did to him in the game they played Pitt, and Blair had 20-plus rebounds and 20-plus points and he’s giving up eight inches, you start to question things like that a little bit when you see a performance like that out of an undersized power player that just shoved him all under the rim, out of bounds and everywhere. He just had his way with him because he wanted it more. That’s going to raise a question about his toughness. By Darnell Mayberry
