he will be a very solid player.. people underestimate "skill" a lot of draft picks are all about potential.. he was a great 4 year college player, great pick up by the pacers..

i'd say he's a mark madsen/ronny turiaf type player. shouldn't have gone that high, IMHO.

I think he will be a solid role player who can give 15-20 minutes of productive minutes on a championship caliber team and could step in and start a little if somebody goes down in front of him

He will be a key backup for at least the next 10 years. Depending on how he chooses to develop he will either:

1) Improve his speed and quickness, playing more on the perimeter and causing matchup problems like Toni Kukoc. And like Kukoc, he still won't be able to defend either SF or PF. He will become a key versatile backup for a championship team, somewhere. Or,

2) Improve his overall strength, put on 25lbs of muscle, and exclusively play PF. In this role he will be more likely to become a starter, though not for a championship team. He will play in the post but still be able to step out to 20ft, and average something like 14/8at the height of his career.

I see why a couple of you guys gave the Pacers an F for their draft night and I sort of agree. Hansbrough is much better than many of you think. He could be your future pf. The problem is that well the Pacers were already a good rebounding team without him and had plenty of toughness inside. So what exactly does Psycho T bring to the Pacers that they do not already have on the inside? I really don't know. I'm not sure you could've gotten someone else. And he's turning 24 in November so there's limited upside with that. The good thing is that he doesn't have a history with injuries and has proven himself before.

I think the perfect comparison to T.Hans would be Haslem. Him and Haslem are tough players and have passion for the game. He'll probably be a little better than Haslem because he can strech the court. He can be a Starter Caliber PF on a team with a dominant big man like Yao or Dwight and other up and coming centers.

There is absolutely no chance he becomes a star. But he is going to be an excellent role player, there is no way he will suck but no way he will be great

he will be a solid starting pf. i think he might slide into an all star game or 2. the mark madsen stuff has to stop.

Why? His game is so ugly it is only comparable to that of the great Mad Dog.

thanks for proving my point....


Hansbrough was a much more dominant force across the board against a much tougher level of competition while playing at a younger age.
There's honestly no comparison of their college games.

I don't think Hansbrough is going to be great, or even very good in this league, but the ONLY reason they get compared is because they're two white power forwards who "hustle," however you interpret that word. It's superficial. It's an on-the-surface comparison.

It's, in a word, dumb.

All-Star game? You're just being a UNC homer. I'll say it right now: no team with Tyler Hansbrough as a full time starter will ever go further than the first round of the playoffs. Being an effort player may work in the NCAA, but you have to have a premium level of talent in the NBA. Hansbrough doesn't have it.

He' could be like a David Lee and find 1 thing he is really good at and become a specialist. Or he could become Mark Madsen and just hustle on every play. He'll be a solid player, idk about star yet.

i think hell be a solid role player not bc of his skills but bc he is a hard worker and isnt really full of himself like other players in the league

I think he has the potential to be a really good cheerleader from the bench for his team. You know, kind of like Mark Madsen.

I'm a big Hansbrough fan, I was hoping the raps could get him somehow until we got Reggie Evans. I think he'll be a solid role player with a chance to start in a year or 2, I see him being a hustle player like Varejao or Birdman Anderson with a better mid-range game
