On the eve of the Final Four, we give a behind the scenes look at Hasheem Thabeet.  The spotlight won't have to search too hard for Thabeet tomorrow night.  His 7'3" frame has been casting a shadow over opposing players, and baskets for that matter, all season long.  Gameplans have changed drastically to deal with the dominant Junior but should people really be that worried?
