Confusingous wants Hasheem Thabeet to stay in school. Of course, there are selfish reasons. The main one being that him being on the court guarentees them a spot in the NCAA tournament (possible sanctions aside). But, Confusingous thinks he needs to.
His offense has improved remarkably since he arrived at Storrs a few years back. But it still needs work. He needs to develop an instinct for getting to the rim fast. He needs to develop a face-to-basket game. While he plays like a ten foot monster on the defensive end, he shrinks to a 6 foot guard on the offensive end.
One more year will turn a draft question mark into an exclamation point. Confusingous is aware of the challenging home situation that Hasheem faces, and would not blame him for taking the money to improve his family’s life. However, one year at school could make the difference between first round bust and NBA All-Star.
So, while Hasheem mulls over his tough decision, Confusingous has started a vigil. His Windows background will be an image of Hasheem. If Hasheem stays, it will remain so throughout the 2009-10 College Basketball season.
So, Hasheem, some food for thought.
