How a certian Tarheel Measures Up

Whats up ya'll I've done a couple posts and I was crucified cause I said Tyler Hansbrough was gonna be the &$#%#&@! in the NBA. Who's laughing now? After looking at the Combine Measurement I see that Mr Hansbrough is a stong 6'9 and his standing reach is 8’10 a full inch taller than Blake Griffin. Everyone said Griffin was the bomb on account of how he was taller. How he could get higher than Tyler, ya’ll can go some where and stay there. Tyler's gonna be great and you heard it here. There's only a few people that can talk the talk and walk the walk. I did it in basketball in real life now I do it on video games. No body should have a comment but if you feel like you can hang meet on NBA Live 09 to see who's got any balls to back up what they say. Jyya

Upside

Hansbrough as dominant he may be in 4 years in college. He is what most teams consider the finished product, what you see is what you get. He lacks the upside. Upside/potential the word that all lottery teams look at. Very often an NBA ready player will often get overlooked against this kid with sky-high potential. 06 draft, Brandon Roy gets overlooked against the likes of Bargnani, Tyrus Thomas etc. And in this year, James Harden could possibly be the one, I'm not betting against it. But look at it this way, Hansbrough in a playoff team as an energy/hustle player, not too bad isnt it? Then again in every draft there are sleepers, the Josh Howards. They can come in and do a solid job as a starter but as for Hansbrough the best he could hope is a role like what Varejao does for the Cavs or Chris Anderson does for the Nuggets. Nobody's bashing Hansbrough, being great in college doesnt always translate to the pros.

Tyler

isn't a finished product at all... he's improved every year and still is, if you didn't notice he has a more consistant jump shot and has added some range to it... people say his numbers dropped after his freshman year, but that's because he didn't have to shoulder the load with another top recruiting class by Roy Williams... IMO Tyler will keep improving his 3 point range and may be able to move to the 3 one day

No

He will be an inside player. He measured at 6'10 at the combine the other day so he will have good size for a 4-man. He will be like David Lee at best, and of course Madsen at worst lol. Personally, I think he will be more Madsen, I dont think he is as athletic and Lee. But what's up with all the UNC players at the combine (Lawson, Ellington, and Lawson) getting an inch taller and there wingspans and standing reaches getting longer from last year? It can only help

iguodala9 - Comparing White Players

Hey iguodala9, you can't be serious. Other than being a white power forward, what in the world does Hansbrough have in common with Madsen, a player with zero basketball skills? Hansbrough was an offensive force at NC four years in a row who commanded double and triple teams. Madsen's never been doubled team in his entire career because he's a player with no offense period.

And then there's David Lee, who's a big time leaper and a great rebounder. Other than the the fact they're both white power forwards, where are the similarities in their game?

There are several power forwards with whom I would compare Hansbrough, but I don't have a white list. I would compare him with Landry @ Houston and Powe in Boston.

Just stop...

I don't care how tall Hansbrough measured. I know what I saw w/ my own two eyes & that was Griffin obliterating Hansbrough in the tournament. I know that I saw Griffin obliterate every player he faced. I can't say the same for Hansbrough. He wasn't even drawing double teams during the tournament. He wasn't even the best power forward on his team (Ed Davis).

I think Hansbrough will be a decent pro, but let's not get carried away people lol. The David Lee comparisons just need to stop. Hansbrough will be a energy guy/role player. Never an All-Star.

Hansbrough and Griffin

tezo83, I thought that was a pretty good post about Hansbrough and Griffin. The one area where we disagree is in Hansbrough's performance during the tournament. I think his NC teammates did very well because the defense was so intent upon stopping Hansbrough.

And thanks for pointing out the stupid comparison between Hansbrough and Lee, their games have virtually nothing in common.

I think Hansbrough will have a career very similar to Landry @ Houston and L. Powe in Boston.

As for Griffin, he was a monster on the boards and an unstoppable force on the offensive end. He was clearly the dominate player in the tournament and those ridiculous measurement comments about him will be forgotten after the draft.

Dude,

You dont even play the right video game, get on the 2k9 hype. As for youre ballin lemme know when youre in the vacinity of No Cali for some run. Hansborough is good guy to have off the bench at best he's a Boozer.

Sorry Im not buying Tyler

Sorry Im not buying Tyler Hansbrough.

He did not find a couple inches in his measurements. He was always 6-9. I dont think he will get a consistent jumper off at the next level. Also, His post moves are OK but not constant enough. He dominated against players with a dim NBA future. He went to the free throw time like 15 times a game, Not in the pros he wont.

Against guys like NC state and Virginia and Florida State...he was "Physio T"

Against Oklahoma (Blake Griffin) Wake Forest ( Aminu and Ty Woods and James Johnson) , Kansas (Cole Aldrich, Darell Arthur and Sasha Khan) last year and against Georgetown (Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green), Gonzaga ( Josh Hyfelt) 2 years ago- He was Tyler Hansbrough.

so wait tyler is suppossed

so wait tyler is suppossed to be great because hes a lil taller? and rtb give it a rest about tyler not being madsen..youve said youre opinion about that people dont agree with you and you dont agree with peopel about it now let it go and move on. and unc yes tyler will get a lil better but not alot..qhaynes what makes you think he wont be able to get his jumper off?..for one theres pick and roll where he can get a open jumper and for two how many pf you know play up in youre chest defense from 15feet out from the basket?...i do think he will get better just not sure how much because in 4 years he never really developed any post moves..his game is over power players which hell have trouble with in the nba like he did against elight big men ( when there were 2 good bigmen onthe other team)

Uhh...i said he wont be able

Uhh...i said he wont be able to get a consistant jumper off. I think he wont be that good.

Like i said before

Against Oklahoma (Blake Griffin) Wake Forest ( Aminu and Ty Woods and James Johnson) , Kansas (Cole Aldrich, Darell Arthur and Sasha Khan) last year and against Georgetown (Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green), Gonzaga ( Josh Hyfelt) 2 years ago- He was Tyler Hansbrough.

Some of those guys are in the NBA, some werent even that good

Hansbrough had trouble with Sasha Khan...... come on now...he is not that good

he wont be a super star but

he wont be a super star but he will have a long career..udonis had trouble against nab caliber big men too while in college plus nba offenses have better pick and roll or pick and pop plays..in case you havnt noticed from watching .nba fours dont guard that far out so if youre a 4 with a jumper you can make a pretty good living just like udonis...like i said he wont be a star but he will be servicable

youre logic makes no

youre logic makes no sense...why draft alot of big men if you can get a ben wallace (undrafted) ( micheal redd)..according to that logic ateam should just draft second rounders since millsap turned out pretty good or gilbert or boozer..come on now..anyone thats compared to those players shouldnt be drafted in the first round?

big baby

ceiling=big baby with a worse jumper

but a solid player to contribute off the bench of a good team, good pick for bottom 1/4th of 1st round. I think hell be better than Madsen much more heart, has to work on his release that hip toss sh*t ain't gonna work.

my logic

My logic is this

Hansbrough is gonna be a 8th -10th man off the bench. Why not take a 8th to 10th man in round 2 and take another guy in round 1?

In the NBA, there are countless people who hustle.....

maybe because there are many

maybe because there are many more players less talented then him that aren't good enough for the first round ( devendorf, danny green etc)

if he did not go to UNC

if he did not go to UNC also, he probably would even be considered for round 1

In THIS draft, Hansbrough is

In THIS draft, Hansbrough is a 1st round pick. This is an exremely weak draft.

He'll be more than just a hustle player, but he won't be a star. The David Lee comparison is a disrespect to Lee. I'm not for 100% sure, but Lee damn near led the NBA in double doubles this season. Lee is just a lot more athletic & fluid.

Hansbrough will be a decent pro. I think if he gets picked by the right team, he could really find a role. The lower he gets picked the better, because that means he'll most likely get picked by a playoff caliber team. I don't know off the top of my head what pick Utah has, but I think Hansbrough would fit great there.

the more time passes the

the more time passes the more im not sure what he will do...i wouldnt say the lee comparisons are disrepectful because when lee came into the leauge and after his first year i bet ifi would have told he would would lead the nba in double doubles you would have laughed and said that is disrespectful..i know i would have ..when you hustle and have some skill i believe things like that are possible..no one thought rodman would be rodman either
