    Default Tyler Hansbrough vs. Taj Gibson

    I thought it might be interesting to look at two players drafted the same year, playing with their respective teams in similar situations, and playing the same position.

    Breakdown :

    Tyler Hansbrough, drafted 13th overall by Indiana 6'9 250lbs, 24yrs old

    14 gms, 15.4 min, 7.0pts, 38%fg, 0-13pt, 32-47ft 48%, 3.8rbs, .36st, .29bks, .86to's

    Taj Gibson drafted 26th by Chicago. 6'9 225 lbs, 24 yrs old
    19gms, 24min, 8.1pts, 49%fg, 32-47 ft, 68%, 5.8rbs, .63st, 1.1bks, 1.7to's

    Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls – Anybody who watches the Bulls knows that Gibson's kryptonite is fouls, but when he's able to stay in the game he usually does a pretty nice job. He's averaging 7.7 boards and 8.7 points per game in the last three contests—pretty respectable considering that he fouled out of one of those games and finished with five fouls in the other two. He's finished with five or six fouls in five of the last six games, and he knows he's doing it, but head coach Vinny Del Negro is telling to keep being aggressive. In time, he might get lucky and get some calls to go his way.
    Way too early to tell how their future's will play out, but seems like a solid pick for the bulls, and I wonder if it was true about the rumor of us swapping picks withe the bulls we could have had Ty Lawson and Taj Gibson.

    Speculation but comparing where players are drafted and the results that follow in the years to come is important for a franchise to be sucesssful.

    I'll take those numbers with a grain of salt. Morphing into Jim O'Brien mode: His shin injury put him a step behind, missing training camp and preseason. Let's give him more time to see what he can do.

    Has Tyler really shot 13 threes this season?

    Meh. The important part for a franchise is to get it right before the draft. Speculations and 'what if' afterwards doesn't help anyone.

    Also Tyler has been injury prone so far and is also a backup PF to Troy who gets a lot of time and Gibson came to the Bulls healthy and found a role there quickly

    The Bulls have structure and structure is good for a rookie and they have pretty good guards in Hinrich and Rose.

    You can tell Tyler has trouble knowing what to do when a play isnt called.. he sets alot of screens and roams around.

    This has more to do with the Bulls being brilliant with their pick with Gibson. We had a nice pick, but theirs is SOTY candidate.
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    Gibson is averaging 10 more minutes per game than Tyler, so it's a little early to do the comparison.

    Taj has had some good games, but Chicago isn't much better than the Pacers when it comes to the win/loss column. Can be hard to compare good players on bad teams.

    Commentator tonight on ESPN was praising Taj's talent and that reports from teammates talk about his hard work.
