You probably didn’t even know Tyler Hansbrough has a sibling who also plays for the Pacers until Tristan Thompson whacked little bro Ben Hansbrough with an elbow to the chops. Admit it! Anyway, big bro reacts just like an older brother nicknamed Psycho-T would in this incident. Why I find this absolutely hilarious? I have no idea. I just do.
The way Tyler Hansbrough played against the Bulls in Game 1. I can’t tell if that’s the bi-product of getting a lot of touches on a bad team a making the best of it or if it’s just a guy starting to find his pro game. Either way, Psycho-T had himself a game in a 99-104 loss with 22 points highlighted by this steal and dunk after he got knocked out.
If he can replicate his performance in Game 2, Chicago got problems.
Tyler Hansbrough is being put on the shelf for the rest of the summer, a move the Indiana Pacers hope allows their first-round draft pick to be healthy for his rookie season.
Hansbrough has a lingering right shin injury from college and needs to rest it six to eight weeks, the Pacers said Friday.
The Pacers said no new injury has occurred, but they want to limit Hansbrough’s activity in hopes he will be healthy for the 82-game NBA regular season.
Training camp is scheduled to start in late September or early October, depending on the details of the Pacers’ trip to China for preseason games.
The Indiana Pacers have signed Tyler Hansbrough, the former North Carolina star who was the team’s top pick in the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-9 forward had been playing with the Pacers summer league team in Orlando, Fla., before his singing was announced Wednesday.
As the 13th overall pick, he’s slotted in the NBA’s rookie salary scale to receive about $1.5 million this season and nearly $1.7 million next season, with a $1.8 million option for his third year.
Hansbrough is the Atlantic Coast Conference’s career-scoring leader and had 40 points and nine rebounds in his first two summer league games for the Pacers.
