Forgot about the bad boys. Rick Mahorn, Bill Laimbeer, Rodman. Heck Isiah Thomas. Player of the decade? And he is not top five from his own school. Jordan, Worthy, Ford, Cunningham, Perkins, Scott, Jameison. Heck he wasnt the best on his own team, Ty Lawson!! Player of the decade!! WOW!! LMAO!!!

Glad to see ABCers are still upset by The SI Player of the Decade, National Champion Tyler Hansbrough.

I'm pretty sure Ricky Rubio would punk Hanstravel down.

Or any of the old school Detroit Pistons Bad Boys. Hilarity would most definitely ensue.

Maybe the unc athletic dept should abide by that axiom. Then we'd finally find out who's behind all the 20+ years of cheating that's gone on over there.

Serious guys do you think Handstravel has any fight in him? I forgot after the Henderson elbow everybody was holding him back. The dude is a wuss. Handstravel, and Henson will bow up to the right one of these days, and we will see how Pyscho he really is. Barkley, Malone, Shaq, Oakley, Mcdaniel, Mason, Parrish, Unseld, Jabbar, K. Washington, etc.. I wish he played aganist these guys. Oh yeah run up on Garnett, or Artest, or even David West in practice.

NHL wouldn't want him. He can't take a punch as Duke proved.

"He just be out there out of control," Gibson said. "I told the ref, 'How are you going to give me a double tech when he's the one burning up on people and snatching the ball and screaming? Nobody was even saying nothing to him, what is he doing? That's Hansbrough for you."
In the game of psychological warfare, Psycho T wins again. Sounds like Boobie ("or Bibby whatever his name is", classic) was ready for Hansbrough to mix things up which is a bonus for the Pacers. Anytime an opponent is thinking more about Hansbrough than his squad it's a win-win for the Pacers.

Hansbrough's really taken his role as hockey goon to heart. I read somewhere that he's learned how to skate and will be traded to the NHL as soon as they resume play.
Boobie Gibson isn't the first player to complain about Tyler Hansbrough's style of play and he won't be the last. Once again, Hansbrough mixed it up with Cleveland's Tristan Thompson and this time Thompson's teammates were ready to back him up.
But with all of the talking and shoving and technicals drawing the attention of the Cavs, the other Pacers on the floor were in the midst of putting the Cavs away. Once again, Hansbrough took up residence under an opponent's skin, leaving them frustrated and looking for some kind of hardwood justice to deal with the Pacers reserve power forward.
Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal breaks down how Hansbrough drove Gibson nuts as a subplot to the Pacers win.
If Daniel Gibson and Tyler Hansbrough didn't like each other during the game, when they were assessed double technicals for jawing, they really aren't going to like each other after hearing what each said about the other after the game.
"He's always doing bulls--- like that," Gibson said. "He's always egging guys on and walking up on them. I was like, 'You gotta calm that s--- down before you get f----- up out here. You've really got to chill. I understand that you're an energy guy, but chill, man.'"
Hansbrough told the Indianapolis Star's beat writer, Mike Wells, that he Thompson was staring him down and he was ready to fight when "Boobie or Bibby or whatever his name is" stepped in. Hansbrough said he doesn't talk, he was ready to go.
The problems, of course, stem back to last week's game at Indianapolis when Thompson blasted Ben Hansbrough in the side of the head with an elbow. Tyler thought it was intentional and immediately got in Thompson's face.
