    But the claims of possible harm seem completely negligible to me. Heaven forbid someone get their feelings hurt.
    Why make it easy for people trying to damage someone's reputation?


    Or be held to a standard that they give 100% accurate and complete medical reports from this day forward.
    Assuming you don't have some other, legitimate information that his medical reports were not 100% accurate, this is the perfect example of a DOA rumor gaining legitimacy through the echo chamber.

    I tend to believe this came up before and was "kept quiet" from NBA teams. I find it hard to believe he was "suddenly diagnosed with this"

    The other side of the argument is that with all the available outlets for information, it is pretty tough to believe they could have kept this out of those in the know in the NBA


    1 Question : Why did Tyler have no problems with this in pre-draft workouts, or better yet summer league?

    Could be the physicality of the NBA game and increased frequency and number of games over college. If you believe the PCS diagnosis it was probably always a question of when, not if, it would flare up. There just needed to be the right set of circumstances to occur and with every game and every practice, and limited recovery time between games/practice with the potential to make things worse, it would arguably only be a matter of time.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    You could be right, but one thing to keep in mind is that Hansbrough averaged more minutes of game play, per-month, during his entire career at UNC than he has with the Pacers in his less than 2.5 months of actually playing.

    @UNC
    Minutes-Per-Month: 240~
    Minutes-Per-Season: 1,235

    @IND
    Minutes-Per-Month: 216~
    Minutes-Per-Season: 511


    The NBA is tougher without question, but I'm not sure that it's so much tougher to where Hansbrough could handle four years of big minutes in the NCAA with (from what I gather) no P.C.S. symptoms, and yet completely fall apart within 2.5 months of playing in the NBA -- all while playing not much more than half the number of minutes per-game.
