Doesn’t it seem like Tyler Hansbrough just attracts these kinds of hits?
Hansbrough was on the receiving end of a cheap shot the other night in Detroit, where the Pacers had hung a 20-point lead on the Pistons. He scampered up to the 3-point line and a set a pick, throwing Detroit point guard Will Bynum off his path. Bynum, perturbed to have to work his way around Hansbrough, gave him the usual off-the-pick shove — then punched him right in the gut.
The eagle-eyed referees caught it and tossed Bynum out of the game, and the NBA has now announced that Bynum will be suspended a game for the blow.
Given the amount of random hits Hansbrough takes, however, maybe someone should take a look into what makes this guy attract such cheap shots.
