View Full Version : Tyler Hansbrough Proving to be More Than Just 'Hustle'

Just had a career high 29 the other night iirc, now tonight, he's got 28 through 3 quarters on 12-16 shooting against NY. The guy is going off. And I'm not a UNC homer although I go to school here, but I'm just saying, he actually is surprising me.

He also dunked on Amare, lol.

He has always had a ton of talent. People just seemed to forget about it once he got that hustle label.
I think more people were concerned with his size (or lack there of) and non-versatility. He's proving them wrong right now though. He's kind of the white Dejaun Blair, except he has ACLs in his knees.

His shooting percentages are finally going up but one of his strengths has been consistently getting to the line. That, and his midrange jumper is dead on right now. While he is more than just hustle, his hustle has contributed largely to him getting to the line and tracking down loose balls and rebounds for easier putbacks. I was skeptical about drafting him as a lottery pick but he is quickly becoming my favorite Pacer (never was much of a Granger fan).

Couldn't be happier for him. He's a Tarheel legend, and for all the awards and accolades given at Chapel Hill, he had just as many skeptics. Hope he continues to prove them wrong.
