What Was Our #2 Overall Pick Doing During the NBA Rookie Challenge? Tweeting From the Mall, Of Course!

Below are the Twitter updates from our own Hasheem Thabeet during last night’s NBA Rookie Challenge. You know, the game that features the NBA’s best rookies versus the NBA’s best sophomores? The game that crowned former Memphis Tiger Tyreke Evans as MVP of the game? Where Evans pulled a Doctor J reverse lay-up in traffic during the game?

No, we didn’t make this up. Go look for yourself – www.twitter.com/hasheemthedream

If things couldn’t get even more frustrating.

[Hasheem defenders may point out that two other top-5 picks from last year’s draft didn’t participate in the game, either. If someone says this to you, slap this person. Because the other two include Blake Griffin (out for the year) and Ricky Rubio (playing in Europe).]

The only positive spin I can find in this – and it’s a bit of a stretch, I know – is that maybe somebody kept him out of that game in order to keep his dwindling trade value from going down even more, if that’s possible in a glorified scrimmage.

In the end, though, it’s too irritating to see another reminder of what we could have had. Instead, we’ve got our pick tweeting from the mall.

Ugh.
