Iranian international Hamed Haddadi says he is a star of the Memphis Grizzlies but the NBA team leaves him on the bench and off the court most of the time.

How do u guys know he isnt? he pretty much just said that he is a star if given the minutes. He hasnt done anything in his previous basketball career to contradict that.

go look at the stats of these past olympics. who led ALL PLAYER IN THE WHOLE WORLD in rebound and blocks. Hamed Haddadi.

just give him some mintes, let him prove himself, and if he fails he fails

In summer league. he had less minutes then Hasheem Thabeet but ad more points, rebounds, and blocks. I know its just summer league, but its summer league for BOTH of them. there playing against the same competiton and Haddadi outplayed Thabeet fair and square.

I especially like the confidence that he has. He believes he can be the best. Hopefully he shows some heart when he's playing on the floor as well as practices most importantly.

He played very well in Iran but it is taking him some time to mature his game at the NBA level, just like many guys who enter the NBA. He also needs to polish his game a little bit more in order to be a more dominant big man.

No wonder he leads the "world" in rebounding... if that's considered a rebound in international ball

u guys blew this out of porportion. number one, tthe quote said that he says he is "a star of memphis" not THE star. And his english isnt perfect. he just came from Iran, so all he means is that hes a really good player and he shud get more playing time, and if he doesnt get it with memphis then he wants to go somewhere where he can show what hes got

Looks like he rebounded the ball and the opposing player knocked it out of bounds... it was a rebound, even in the NBA.

I actually liked his shot about 15 seconds later... could be a great player in a couple of years.

Seems like he really was just taking advantage of easy defense. Not sure if he plays defense either... Have to see him play against better competition.

Agreed man. I think we're dealing with the type of people who think english is the only language of the planet. It's probably just a literal translation. When I was a kid we had some complete hack from the NHL show up to our school and people lined up for autographs because... even here, all pro atheletes are 'stars' in their home town/country. I don't think this is a question of an inflated ego whatsoever.

He's tall and good for an Iranian player; that's about it. Why would you put Haddadi out there when you can play Gasol instead? He's just mad at being the only player representing his country in the NBA, but not getting much playing time.

They have so much prospect though that it might take a while.

I hope Thabeet doesn't become a bust.
