Almost every chat i read on espn, someone asks about tyler Hansborough and say stupid things like this, Morgan (PA): Do you think Hansborough will be as dominant as a NBA player than he is as is college? will people understand he will not be any good in the NBA and will not be drafted in the first round or no where near it. i mean he is averaging 21 points 7 rebounds and .09 assists with .04 blocks a game on a good north carolina team. i mean he isnt even averaging a double double and his team mates are taking the pressure off of him. if he was good he would have came the last three years but didnt because he was never dominate and never will be. anyone who says he is the number one pick or even a first rounder is basketball challenged. the guy is a descent college player but is not great or will be good in the NBA at all.

well i think hansbrough will be slightly better. hansbrough should be a 2nd rounder IMO.

He'll be a good role player (7th-8th man). He has that nice mid-range jumper on offense and if he gets stronger on defense and can body up PFs he'll be one of those guys that are invaluable to playoff teams.

He SHOULD be a mid-late 2nd rounder but you know a team is going to reach for him.

If he left college 2 years ago he would have been a top 5 pick and would have made HUGE money. I still think someone will take him in the 1st round but I don't see him being a dominant player in the NBA.

yeah he would of made huge money back then, but he'll be a second round pick, guaranteed

Listen its not Tylers fault he is a few inches too short to be an effective power forward. It is what it is. He will be a James Posey type utility guy off the bench and there is nothing wrong with that.

I don't think he was comparing the two straight up, i'm pretty sure he just meant that he'll be as valuable as a bench player to a team as Posey is. Now if he was comparing the two straight up...then he must be :smoking:

im thinking bottom half of the 1st round. hes a good player, i think you sold him short. hes a dominating player in college, hes been college player of the year twice. yes he is too short to guard some pfs, but i think hell be alright

He's not up on a lot of draft boards, I don't know why people talk him up. I'll be greatly surprised if his game translates to the NBA.

02-25-2009, 09:33 PM
Im pretty positive he will go in the first round. He obviously won't dominate, but I don't think most people here are saying he will. I'm a big Hansborough fan, but he isn't gona be great. He is ona provide alot of energy off a bench though and play good minutes for some contender.

he'll get drafted 1st round just off of his college career. Plus GM's seems to think 4 year guys our better than freshman or soph's even if they have no skill...However, he will not be a great or good NBA player, i see him being like a robin lopez...only gets in during blowouts

If he were black, he would probably be a top 3 pick. :rolleyes:

HE will be drafted in the 20-30 range. No way he goes into the second round. I think hes s teal in the 2nd round.

i think he's the second coming of a matt harpring. except with more of a post game and less of an outside game. not as good, but similar

That seems like a pretty dominant college career. I also disagree and think he will go late first round to early second round. And guess who just got a late first round pick....thats right the bulls :D. Personally i think you're the one who is basketball challenged. He is a GREAT college player and you cant take that away from him. Whether or not that translates into the nba game is another matter.

Youre all crazzzzzzzzzzzy He will go top 15 4 sure! Some Gm will take him on his name and popularity.He will average around 12 13 a game give you energy off the bench.A lot like a kevin love not Mark madsen

Where's KG?
02-25-2009, 11:42 PM
He plays so hard though. Kevin Love type player IMO. Not a superstar, but definitely a 15-8 guy. I am a die hard Heels fan, but i still think he will be decent, not great

Hard-nosed, blue collar type. He'll work hard, dive for loose balls and get his nose bloodied up, but he'll never be a star in this league. If he gives a team 10 and 6 that sounds about right.

KG2TB
02-26-2009, 12:01 AM
I'd be down with the Bulls signing him with our 1st round pick from OKC if he's still available. It's going to be a late 1st because it's the worse pick between the nuggets and jazz I believe. He'll be a really solid role player that will always give 100% and do what you ask of him.

Lindystud36
02-26-2009, 12:03 AM
Doesnt OKC have like a million picks, they will prob grab him because of the name to sell tickets and its not like a player like tyler would hurt a teams chemistry

agreed, i am a die hard heels fan too. it is just like the lakers and celtics haters, everyone hates the best. he will be a solid player and i think better than love. he has decent athletic ability and is developing a nice J. im tired of everybody talking bad about him. he is not the next bird but he will be better than decent and a good player in the nba.

Get real. Hansborough will give you passion, heart, hustle, and some toughness off the bench. He can be a very effective role player. He has a nice mid-range game too from what I seen of him. I think down the road, a stat line of 12 and 6 is pretty reasonable. That's not bad for a late 1st or early 2nd rounder. He has all the intangibles to help a playoff team.

i dont care how many awards he has won. college awards are like the heisman in college football. if thats the case then danny wuerful and eric crouch should have been pro bowlers by now. if your saying he will be any good in the NAB then you must only watch college basketball

i dont understand some of you saying he will be a late first round pick. he put up better numbers last year and stayed in school cause he was projected to go last second round, his numbers have dropped this year. he will not go in the first round and i dont think the bulls are dumb enough to draft someone slow and not athletic.

he is putting up 21 and 8 with a 52 FG% on a great UNC team that takes away some of his minutes and shots.
i also hear he is battling some kind of injury or ailment or something.
he is arguably the best player in the nation and is very well known throughout the media.
he has decent size and strength, as well as solid range for a forward.
someone grabbing him late 1st or earlier 2nd is not really a stretch of our imaginations, even if you feel it is a stretch on the draft board.

exactly..... 6 9 and he is grabbing 8 boards in college. elton brand was 6 9 and put up a double double his whole career. when you are 6 9 in college and are the main player on your team and you cant average double digit in rebounds then theres something wrong with you and you know he will not average double digit in points in the nba so rebounds was what he mostly had and no one is talking about him being in the conversation as the best player in the nation in college anymore with blake griffin stephan curry and ect.....

1. his team is stacked. he gets less minutes and less looks.
2. he averaged 22/10 last year
3. no one is saying he will be elton brand.
4. you dont have to be a double double guy in the NBA in order to be a late 1st rounder or a good role player.

Too true. He'll never be dominating, but he'll help out a team more than a lot of other players who will be drafted late 1st or early 2nd round.

Defensively he will be outclassed, offensively he will be outclassed, athletically he will be outclassed, size-wise he is undersized, and basketball IQ-wise he doesn't compare.

He will give all he's got, but that can only carry you so far...

I see 8 and 6 as the most you will get from him...

Did you read what i wrote? I never said he will be good in the NBA. I said the guy is one of the best college players of all time and he will be drafted late first early secound. If UNC go on to win the title this year (which i think they will) his draft stock will sky rocket. "the guy is a descent college player but is not great". How can you even say that?
