Jamaal Tatum

– Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year 2007

– Excellent post passer capable of delivering the ball regardless of traffic
– scored 21 points against Virginia Tech and 19 against Kansas
– made numerous All-Academic teams and had a 4.0 GPA in his first semester. (nothing were said about his subsequent semesters bout I suspect it’s low. =(.)
– Tatum’s father is a professor of art at Lincoln University and his mother is the supervisor of Jefferson City Public Schools
– owns the school record for Helios High Scholl with 49 points.
– lookalike mix (in the picture at least) = Etan Thomas. both of them were scholars aren’t they? Poetic.

Jamaal’s overall GPA at SIU was 3.64 – and his basketball IQ is extremely high. He’s a very athletic and energetic player with an amazing ability to win games. Numerous teams will look back at the missed opportunity to draft him with disgust.

Actually Jamaal has maintained his GPA while excelling as a phenomenal athlete. He had a 3.64 cumulative GPA in his senior year – http://siusalukis.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/020907aaa.html

Ya, i bet some would, but I’m sure he’d be able to latch onto some teams that are in need of another backup point, the Nuggets needs someone like him since Steve Blake is going, he can shoot and he fills a need.

Jamal tatum is the truth and i feel that most of the nba teams are over looking his talent . I feel they should let the gut show what he can do he really has a gift.
