I think Fab is Far better than Thabeet. Thabeet isn't much of a smart player. Fab has smarts & looks better & better every game. He's looking even quicker & more athletic now.
no need to rush him. I wasn't happy with the pick during the draft but I've come around to thinking he could be a decent backup center AFTER NEXT SEASON. give him 2 years in D league to learn how to rebound, defend without fouling and how to score around the basket with confidence. once he can do that against that level of competition, he should be able to be a backup center in the NBA.
If he turns out to be a more mobile Perk with better hands, I'd be thrilled but I wouldn't expect anything from hiim until his 3rd year after he was drafted.
