Tim Hardaway Jr just got Fatheaded

Submitted by Blazefire on March 5th, 2011 at 11:41 PM

The guys at Fathead are currently falling all over themselves to acquire the rights to chop THJ out of this image and make him a 5 foot tall wall cling the minute he goes pro.

I mean, serioulsy, the thing is tailor made for those things.

(Also, is the cookie baking elf trying to trip Hardaway?)

Tim freakin' Hardaway, Jr; that in itself comes as a strong recommendation; I remember his dad -as a pro- and while they might not have the same game, they do have similar panache. Just the name had me hoping and thinking. Also, the team is pretty young; there was plenty of opportunity for him to establish himself. The next couple of years is going to be a blast around these parts with all these 'jrs' coming; the 'Glens' and hopefully Larry Nance jr.; all your 'jrs' is ours!

THJ definitely has the genes workin' in his favor, but his offer sheet coming out of high school was amazingly meh.   Minnesota and us.  That's it (according to Rivals).  So the scouting services - and D1 coaches - were not drooling over him at all as a big-time prospect.  He did sign with us in the summer, so maybe the early solid UM verbal stifled his offer sheet.   Nonetheless, JB deserves mad props for identifying him early in the process and getting him onboard, a la Glenn Robinson.  Even with his genetic make-up, he was a serious question mark heading into the season.   After a few rough patches early in the B10 season, he has elevated his play beyond most of our wildest imaginations.  Let's hope the progression continues next year (still snake-bitten by some of the Amaker-era freshmen who didn't develop as much as I thought they should have).

It looks that way, but you are probably giving him too much credit.  THJr. blew past him so fast the elf couldn't figure out where he went much less try to trip him.

It's hard to believe the scouts missed this kid's tremendous talent.  Give Beilein a TON of credit for recognizing it and recruiting him to Michigan.  He's already making some NBA-caliber plays.  He needs to work on some aspects of his game obviously as a freshman.  But, I'm anxious to see how much he improves next year.  I'm hoping 18 to 19 ppg and maybe 5-6 rpg.  And hopefully, a lot less dumb turnovers!

The alley-oop play was awesome, but was I the only one who foresaw a Jordan Morgan dunk after Izzo subbed out Draymond Green for chubby down two?
