Tyler Hansbrough Tries to Murder the Rim

This GIF of Tyler Hansbrough dunking in the open court comes courtesy of Grantland, whose editor explained the play much better than I can: “We Have a Working Theory That a Rim Once Murdered a Member of Tyler Hansbrough’s Family; He Is Non-Discerning in His Quest for Revenge.” (h/t @GarrisonCarr)

It’s unlikely, but Kool G. Rap may have had a precognition of this play 25 years ago when he was penning his verse on the best posse cut in hip hop history, “The Symphony.”

Take a deep breath, because you don’t have another left
Comin’ back like I’m avengin’ my brother’s death
Makin’ veterans run for medicine
Cuz I put out more lights in a fight than Con Edison
Rip the damn cage like I’m on a rampage
So if you want rage, I’mma make front page

Or, ya know, maybe not.

    I loved Austin calling for the 360 on the break, I would like to see him try it in the NBA but not in a tie game during the first half.

    Did anyone see the post game press conference where Vogel went out of his way to say Hansborough is a Starting caliber player and Pendegraph is a rotation player? Foreshadowing for next year perhaps…

      possibly. I don’t want to see D-West go, though. I think it’s more likely he was just talking his player up after a very nice game.

      I also think Vogel realizes that Hansbrough gets disrespected by a lot of players in the league. He was trying to boost Hansbrough’s confidence and give him some praise after a great game, that’s all. I’m almost sure of it.

      I agree with Jack here. TH has the ability to be a fifth option offensively for a starting unit…kind of like a more skilled Reggie Evans…but his role as fourth option in the second unit is his bread and butter…Pendergraph is a solid player, though, if reeking of inexperience a bit.
