No, Hasheem Thabeet is not standing in an abnormally cramped hallway; he’s 7-3. The big man entered UConn as an extremely raw talent still getting a feel for the game. When he leaves in June 2009 to enter the NBA, he’ll be infinitely more polished, still 7-3, and the apple of many NBA team’s eyes. — Adam Fleischer
