Profiles in Courage: Tyler Hansbrough (a photo essay)

The Heels lost two of the three core talents primarily responsible for their stellar 2007-2008 basketball season today.  Point guard Ty Lawson and sharp shooting Wayne “Pretty Boy” Ellington, both Sophomores, have declared for the NBA Draft, though neither will apparently sign with an agent.  This of course gives them the option to return for the Junior campaigns should they choose to do so at a later date.

Release...

Meanwhile, National Player of the Year Tyler Hansbrough has made it official that he’ll be returning for his Senior season as a Tar Heel.  That’s a bold move coming from a player whose draft stock has almost certainly plateaued, though I suppose it can’t get much worse either.  Coming back also gives Tyler a legitimate shot at breaking J.J. Redick’s ACC scoring records; potentially a great story there for next season.

In the wake Tyler’s accolades and his refreshing decision to spend 4 entire seasons as an amateur athlete, Frumpzilla would like to honor Hansbrough with a brief tribute.  After the jump of course…

 

Rims have been known to torment and ridicule Tyler from time to time.  They anger him. More anger...

 Tyler also as issues with balls.  They torment him so...He wants it. He needs it...

 TYler has apparenlty struggled with his "ball problem" since high school

You'd back the f*ck up too if you caught that glare...Intense...

  Just let go of the pain, Psycho-TMore rim jobs...Tyler's taken some knocks...

Just give him the damn ball!  Someone could get hurt...

But there’s a lighter side to Mr. Hansbrough too…

Someone is apparently making baloon animals off camera in this shot...

Ravising wit, and a master of disguise...And a great impressionist too?

The barber...

The model...

 The intellectual...

Tyler truly is special...

Yes, Tyler truly is special.  Thanks for giving college basketball fans one more year of this, Psycho-T.  And watch your back if you you’re ever around that guy in the bottom left-hand corner of the last pic again…

    It would be cool if Tyler worked on his shooting touch and developing an awesome inside/out game. Now that would improve his draft stock. Although, the league is always looking for defensive stoppers. He could dedicate himself to becoming a defensive force. Options. Ellington and Lawson are not ready. They will probably be demoted to D-League. It would be better if they worked hard this summer and showcase improved skills.

    Tyler is so INTENSE. He’s scary man. I’m always a little nervous that he’s going to get a bad call and actually bite someones head off.  He’s great though. Big props to my man for coming back his senior year. Do your thing Phycho T and get that degree. Kids need role models like that, I know I do.
