Tyler hansbrough's new found height

psycho t measured in at 6'9.5" shoes which means he will be listed at 6'10" in the pros. I honestly now think he should be a lottery pick. Some may say i'm crazy but think about it.

He can step out and he jumpers all the way to the 3 point range

he's as strong as an ox

he's nonstop hustle

i know he's still not that great of an athlete but he has the intangibles

i think the mark madsen comparisions need to stop

he's now.........Juwan Howard

I agree Tyler is going to

I agree Tyler is going to have a way better career than Madsen. However, I don't quite think he is a lottery pick. I think Hansbrough gets drafted in the early 20's. He just doesn't have that WOW factor that lottery picks have.

Another issue

He measured in at 234 lbs.

Now, by itself that doesn't necessarily mean anything, but it's possible that he could lose some quickness if he attempts to bulk up, or have less impact banging with the big boys if he doesn't.

I don't think he's worth a lottery pick -- but we'll get a confirmation when they release vertical leap results.

234 is actually lighter than

234 is actually lighter than he used to be. ESPN lists him at 250, for example. Now that may have been inaccurate from the outset, but I had always pegged him as somewhere between 240-250. To hear that he's 234 suggests he may end up being a hair faster in the NBA than in college.

Well, look...

The guy's an average NBA athlete at best. It's my judgement call that he's neither that strong or that athletic, and at 234 lbs. he's not an impressive PF specimen.

We know that various teams look for various qualities. It's possible a team will take him late in the lottery. Personally, I would take someone with more upside.

But let's wait till the other measurements (like vertical, speed, etc.) are released. We're jumping to conclusions here.

mark pope was no where near

mark pope was no where near as skilled as hansbrough..if you're serious about that...idk

i said juwan because of the size, the jumper, the the toughness, similar strength, not very athletic, and a calm demeanor most of the time

What Do U Mean ?

Newfound height ? I always could look at him and tell that he was 6-9 in shoes. I don't know where all this surprise is coming from.

I think his career progress

I think his career progress can really be determined by how good the team he goes to is around him. If he goes to a team in the lottery a lot is expected of him and I don't think he'll ever live up to those expectations. Then on the other end say he goes in the mid to late first range where hes projected. He can sit back and be a role player and go to a team who already has a pf starting and provide solid depth on the bench.
