    [FONT=&quot]Hasheem Thabeet: We’ve got a Problem![/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Ushauri wa bure!!![/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]The Memphis Grizzlies refers him as Hasheem “Thabust” just to indicate their sentiments due to poor contribution he brings on the table for his organization. The atmosphere is not compelling at all; it won’t be a surprise to learn of another assignment that would send Hasheem Thabeet to [/FONT][FONT=&quot]NBA’s Development League.[/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Hasheem, who once was a hero in the college league when played at Uconn, is definitely doing nothing impressive to his team. The rage is on among intolerant fans that could not spare their sentimental feeling towards him, considering that they blew out a second overall pick to select Mr. “Thabust”.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Hasheem is among Tanzanians who could make us proud and yes he still can, but there is some sort of extra efforts need to be taken. NBA sio lelemama, big stars (Shaq, Olajuwon, Michael Jordan, Kobe etc) didn’t get there easily. There is a lot to give up, and yes a lot to work upon. Trips to Tanzania on every bit of NBA break will not help the process. You need to maximize the off season segment for an advancement of your career.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Hasheem Thabeet was drafted in summer 2009 as a second overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies, to set a remarkable and landmark event to the country he was born in (Tanzania) and East Africa as a whole. I want to believe that every “bongoman” celebrated to the fullest…ooh it was a proud moment of our time. I remember inviting West African friends “Wapopo” at my house for nyama choma and drinks, as the banner waved in front of my house reading “CELEBRATING HASHEEM THABEET ACHIEVEMENT”. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]The Memphis wants a trade! They want to…not as their wishes to throw away their own second pick No! But only to get rid of Mr. “Thabust” who has been not only less productive, but also a burden. Hasheem has established himself to be a liability on both offensive and defensive end on the court. The only thing he’s good at is fouling.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]The problem they are facing is to find imminent deals to match up a “second pick” value. Reports say that no team is willing to take Hasheem, unless packaged with other pieces for which Memphis is still contemplating the proposal. "The team is super disappointed in his lack of desire to get better. He is beyond bad, Yes he does nothing well. He doesn’t even block shots and he is not feared in the paint anymore" says one of the fans.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Hasheem has lost touch with the game. His performance is awful. He rarely score points (avg 1.4 per game), grabs rebounds (1.40 per game), and 0.0 assists. His playing time dropped drastically and fans expect anything when he enters the game.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]Now, we all know that Hasheem came into the game with limited basketball skills, but that does not restrict him from excelling his potential. There are more qualities a player needs to have instead of just being tall and Hasheem just doesn't have those abilities right now. I will give him one small excuse; he didn't start playing basketball until he was 15. Hakeem Olajuwon bears an identical background Hasheem has. He started playing at the age of 15, but Hakeem “The Dream” knew what was due to shape up his game. He did his assignments and achieved a major accomplishment in the league, two times NBA titles[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]This article has nothing to do with malicious motive, but a wakeup call to reboot Hasheem’s intensity to press toward the original purpose and live up to the expectations. We (wabongo) are still living a hope we have in you. One day your game will turn around, if only some seriousness is attached to the process. I wish you all the best in your endeavor. Happy New Year kijana! [/FONT]​

    He needs to get his grip on, SERIOUSLY..na hii biashara ya kugombana na watu sijui nini he should just leave that nonsense. he needs to lay low and put some energy in what he is suppose to be doing......he should leave the flashy kind of life to people who are already doing well in that area..he needs to grow up both mentally and spiritually na aanze kuangalia maisha mbele na sio kuangalia only where his nose ends......aweke jitihada zaidi........kila la kheri Hasheem Thabeet

    Mdogo wangu, what grip can he get while his hands are greasy?

    That is where we make insulting comments kama hana IQ na kadhalika... Huyu dogo alianza kuonyesha cheche za dharau muda kidogo

    Given a chance, i would advice him to accept the D league, hire a super counsellor and personal trainer na ashuke chini, asimsikilize mama, girlfriend wala kale kadogo kake.... ajipe 6 months exile na awe animal, to be seen only in games.... amrudie Mungu wake na asali sana tu ni super therapy, regrdless of what you believe in

    In six months i believe atarudi

    Watu wengi tumeshampa ushauri mara chungu nzima ikiwemo wakati wa summer (asirudi bongo) na kuwaajiri kwa muda akina Olajuwon/Mutombo ili wamsaidie katika kuinua kiwango cha uchezaji wake katika both ends (defensive na offensive) lakini hadi sasa ametia pamba masikioni labda safari hii ataufuata ushauri huu na kuufanyia kazi, tusubiri.

    not NBA material ..? maybe or not..

    Lakini its obvious assessment ya 2nd overall pick was simply RIDICULOUS ... that put a lot of pressure on the young man who could only afford an average of 1.3 ppg (plus other mediocre OF and DEF achilia mbali assist)in his rookie..thats simply horrible. (Mind u IMO i think he was given a lot of minutes to prove himself, but HE DID N'T)

    Na this season kocha is showing very little faith in him na mechi nyingi hapangwi, nadhani hii kwa upande mwingine inazidi kumdidimiza kwene kukosa confidence na hata kumuuza itakuwa shida maana hapati minutes.

    It is getting worse and worse for the yung man sijui hapo atatokaje. Labda kama wanavyosema wengine aende Ulaya au Asia..Scrutiny na competitiveness ya NBA pengine is above the bar.

    Jamaa yuko kwenye situation mbaya sana right now, maana hata kupangwa hapangwi so hata opportunity hakuna, bora aende D-League kujinoa. Ukifananisha na DeJuan Blair second round pick ambaye amekosa ACL kwenye magoti yote mawili!! Hii inaweza ikawa disaster. Ila nadhani yuko guaranteed $3mil a year so akijipanga vizuri anaweza kuretire after 2 years lol.

    When Yao Ming came to the NBA he was a big joke and nobody gave him a chance, and look how improved he's been! Had it not been for the injuries he's been sustaining lately he would arguably become the best center in the NBA.
    Mr Thabeet will improve, esp if he gets traded to a franchise where he can get more playing time. Please, Do not go to Dar during the off season, and instead u can go to CA or Vegas to work out with other NBA stars during off season. Go Thabeet!!
