OKC has just signed Hasheem Thabeet, #2 pick in the 2009 draft, to a 2 year deal.  The Thunder will be ThaBust’s 4th team in 4 years and will give the team their 4th top 4 NBA draft.

Durant #2 in 2007 draft
Westbrook #4 in 2008 draft
Ibaka #24 in 2008 draft
Haseheem #2 in 2009 draft
Harden #3 in 2009 draft

Although I don’t expect an increase in his stats despite only having a career average of 2.2 pts and 2.6 rebs, he could possibly be a key in helping them win a championship.  If he gets a ring he can say he was the #2 pick in the draft, behind Blake Griffin & before Thunder’s James Harden, and he has a NBA championship.  Not too bad for a  “bust”
