Thread: Hansbroughisms

  1. #1

    Default Hansbroughisms

    I have a feeling that as Tyler gets more PT and more publicity as a result, we're going to be getting more of his classic straight-to-the-point quotes dropped on us as well. I'm going to go ahead and start this thread with this one that I just read on ESPN.com...

    "I got a chip on my shoulder," Hansbrough said. "A lot of people don't feel like I deserve to be in the league, the coach didn't play me in the past because I don't know why, so I come in the gym every day, try to get a little better and prove a point."

    Please post more as you find them.

    I'll help...

    Logging his fourth 20-plus point performance in a row, and coming off the best game of his short pro career (29 points, eight rebounds), Tyler Hansbrough seems to be carving himself a niche in the Pacers rotation. Despite his recent surge with the navy and gold, it’s still difficult to get used to him donned in anything but Carolina Blue. Not too far removed from his playing days as a Tar Heel – where he was regarded as a deity – you would think UNC would be the only No. 2 seed he’d be cheering for in this year’s tourney. Think again.

    Don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family; a mantra made famous by Michael Corleone in the first installment of The Godfather. With little brother Ben Hansbrough – the Big East Player of the Year – playing for No. 2 seed Notre Dame, this begs the question as to where Tyler’s allegiance lies. The answer may surprise you.

    *** *** ***

    Dime: What do you think about the Tar Heels’ chances this year?
    Tyler Hansbrough: We definitely have to start playing first halves. In the ACC Tournament they had me on my seat the whole time…but I do like [Tyler] Zeller’s game, [John] Henson is pretty long and Harrison [Barnes] is starting to come around. I think we’re peaking at the right time.

    Dime: Who are the teams to beat this year? Who are you pulling for?
    TH: I’ve got to pull for Notre Dame to be honest with you… it’s my little brother. But I think as for the teams to beat, Pittsburgh’s going to be tough. You know what’s crazy is I think this year’s going to be wide open, I don’t think there’s any dominant team. I think Pittsburgh’s going to be tough. I think Duke is going to be tough.

    Dime: Have you had a chance to talk to your brother and give him some advice going into this year’s tourney?
    TH: No, I try to stay away from him. He’s on the right track and I want him to stay focused. He knows what I’m going to tell him, I’m going to tell him to go out there and bust somebody’s ***! But that’s not the thing he needs to hear. He’s already juiced up enough, I think that would just overdo it.

    Dime: Are you going to try and make it out to any of his games?
    TH: I hope they play in Chicago so I can jet over for a game or something if it works out in the schedule.

    Dime: Any sleeper picks?
    TH: Hmm… UNC. Who else… I can’t believe Virginia Tech didn’t get in. Maybe St. John’s.

    Dime: Who are some of the players you’re excited to watch?
    TH: Umm… Ben Hansbrough, favorite player alive! I would say after that I really like watching John Henson play. The way he plays defense, his ability to block shots, I like watching John Henson.

    People don't think I like Tyler, but actually I do. Even his game has grown on me in it's unique ugliness/whatever it is.

    Good thread idea, great first couple of quotes. I do like seeing him in postgames because he doesn't seem to have the mindset to even consider pulling punches. It's not so much that he's an eloquent leader type determined to speak his mind. It's more like he doesn't know better or doesn't even consider it, and that makes it fun and refreshingly different.

    Kinda Ron but without having to filter out all the crazy.

    Haha, I love this thread.

    Tyler has the attitude I hoped Artest would be able to grow into here, I love it!
    Already stoked for 2013-2014.

    He's blunt. It makes you laugh every once in a while. And its refreshing from being so PC.

    Years from now, if he's still with the Pacers, and, God willing, we win a title, a tiny trophy must be photoshopped into this picture in place of the bobblehead.

    Random Interviewer: So Tyler, is Roy Williams as big an asshat as he
    appears to be ?

    Hans: Oh ya. And you know what really got lame in a hurry ? His use

    From the Hang Time Podcast.....

    On locker room rivalries during NCAA Tournament:

    Believe it or not we've got a lot of guys like, you know, Granger will talk some stuff about New Mexico. Who cares. I never even heard of New Mexico until Granger started talking.

    On having a three point shooting contest with Larry Bird:

    I think I'll sit that one out. I've seen him shoot while he's in a suit. He ain't missing, I'll tell you that.

    He is kinda like Arnold Schwarzenegger when he was a really bad actor. Like the Conan days.

    I might start calling him Tyler the Barbarian.

    Hansbrough always looks like he is under the influence of psychedelic drugs. The big pupils, kind of the distant look. Not saying I think he is, just funny...even during games he always has that "not all there" look. I love it.
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    So far we have 3 scary guys-Tyler, Dahntay, and Lance. We need just a few more.

    Well, this ain't a Hansbroughism, but since it's a Tyler thread - I'm putting it here.

    Damn - was I wrong about him. I never saw him as being more than a good 7th or 8th man in the league. Ever since Vogel has put him in the starting lineup, he's been an excellent player. He has a really reliable 15-18 footer, hits his FTs, rebounds, goes after loose balls, plays defense, always goes at 110% ........... all the things I enjoy watching a good ball player do.

    Great pick Larry. I thought you were waaaaaaaaaaaaay off on picking him.

    I wonder what kind of music he listens to? I bet a lot of death metal. Or maybe he is a Beethoven fan?

    I'd like to make a GIF out of his celebration after hitting this game winner

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTS-ved9sKs
    <---- Hansbrough smiling in the training room after Gerald Henderson's cheap shot. UNC won the game, Tyler was happy so he took this picture. Roy Williams keeps it on his desk.
