Just saw he may slip to the second round. Are you kidding me? We should package our second round picks for a late first rounder so we can pick him up on the cheap.
if the bobcats get hansbrough i may stop watching them
I love UNC and I don't want him
wayyyyyyy too undersized for the NBA
I don't expect him to be the type of player that will be the go to guy on his team or make multiple all star trips but it cannot be denied he brings quite a bit to the table. He is has played 4 years as the go to guy at unc and while he has mostly played center/pf he is clearly skilled with the ball and can dribble and pass on the break. I am not sure he can't play either pf or sf in the nba. He may not be able to get as many rebounds because there are more guys that can jump out of the gym but he can still box out his man and he still has extremly strong hands. I think his biggest assest will be his scoring. He will have much more room to opperate than he had in college (unless he comands the double team right off which is a success in itself) and he will be hard to guard for many nba pf/sf type players. On D I am not sure if he can stay in front of a sf but pf should be no problem. We know he is a hard worker and will fight the whole game and that would help a lot of NBA players. I really don't get the whole undersized thing 6'9'' or 6'8'' is really not that small to play pf in the nba. I see more of a problem with Gerald Henderson who is only 6'4'' (short for an nba 2) who plays like a forward. Tyler is going to be a lot better than people give him credit for and which ever team drafts him will be getting a very polished player. A lot of teams are usually looking to get rid of a late first round pick if they don't think any players can help them b/c it is guaranteed salry for three years so it should be easy to pick one up.
