Tyler Hansbrough is God

Okay, maybe not THE God but at least A god.

I said last January that Tyler Hansbrough might be the best center in UNC basketball history. Better than Sean May. Better than Rasheed Wallace. Better than Brad Daugherty. I may have sold him short.

Tyler Hansbrough may very well be the best player in UNC basketball history. Better than Lennie Rosenbluth. Better than Phil Ford. Yes, better than Michael Jordan. (I'm not saying that he'll be a better pro than MJ, but he may well be a better college player.) Most non-Carolina fans seem to hold Ralph Sampson and David Thompson (and more recently that big Duncan fella) as the best ACC players ever - Tyler is challenging them.

There's not much question in my mind that he'll be playing for big bucks next year, so I suggest you watch every damn Carolina game you possibly can this year and enjoy the kid while we can. As Stephen Colbert would say, he's crum-believable!

Yeah, he's a pretty cool kid. He's my nephew and has been a great kid since the day he was born.

Hey thanks for the comment, Tyler's Uncle or Aunt! :-D He is an absolute pleasure to watch, up there with George Lynch and Eric Montross as Carolina guys that always gave all they had to give. We all, of course, hope he's having so much fun that he'll stay around another couple of years, but if he goes, we will all wish him nothing but success.

He'll be here in a few days for the SLU game and the whole family is going to be there. We're really excited.

UNC has been really good to him and we are really proud of him.

He's the real deal and it's nice that people are seeing that.
