Hasheem Thabeet Plays the April Fool of March Madness

I’m one of the 153 followers of Hasheem Thabeet’s protected Twitter account. His teammate, John Lindner, assured me it was real after I expressed doubts about his original announcement of his teammates’ Twitters.

I have no idea. But I’ll be live blogging as I find out. Join me, won’t you?
