TJ Thomspon playing in France

T.J. Thompson, GW's point guard who helped lead the team to the NCAA tourney in 2004-2005, has moved from being a CBA All-Star to the top French league, the Ligue Nationale de Basketball. He's playing for Hyères-Toulon Var Basketin near the city of Toulon, where another short guy rose to fame - Napoleon Bonaparte. Hopefully that comes true for TJ as well.

I can't find his stats, but there's a poll on the team's website which asks according to the Google translation "Will TJ Thompson be the so much awaited leader?" So far the first choice, "Yes it is certain!" is winning.

Here's his profile in the how-do-you-say? French.

Thanks to BM at GWhoops.com for finding this.
