Tyler Hansbrough was a big time college player at the University of North Carolina. However, his collegiate success has not, and most likely will not, translated to the NBA. However, he provided toughness, grit, selfless play, and energy coming of the bench for the Indiana Pacers, especially during the NBA Playoffs.
As a Knicks fan, I hated and actually still hate Hansbrough, but would welcome his style of play and energy to New York in a heart-beat.
I am pretty sure Hansbrough would have loved to wind up in New York or even in Alcatraz over Toronto. In the following video, Hansborough says that he is excited to be a member of the Toronto Raptors…but his facial expressions show a different story. It looks like he wants to kill himself to be exact. Check it out:
