    Pacers vs. Wizards: Tar Heels in the News 

    The Pacers/Wizards game last night provided lots of press for former Tar Heels. Tyler Hansbrough impressed in his NBA debut and fellow retired-jersey-mate Antawn Jamison popped into the papers without playing a minute.

    It’s Saturday and I’m lazy, so here’s a critique of Hansbrough’s Subaru commercial. **Update** This is actually about Hansbrough’s Acura commercial. It’s basically the same as the Subaru, but just a different brand. So count it, there are TWO Hansbrough WOW! commercials out there.

    Tyler Hansbrough makes NBA debut 

    Wizards Pacers Basketball

    Tyler finally made his NBA debut against the Washington Wizards and put up a pretty good and very Tyler-esque stat line:

    14 points in 13 minutes, 3 for 7 from the field and 7 for 10 from the foul line. He also had five rebounds and dove into the crowd once while chasing a loose ball.

    His coach and teammates also had some real nice things to say about him.

    Pacers coach Jim O’Brien: “A little rusty in a lot of areas, but he’s going to be in the attack mode at the offense and defensive end, he’s going to go after every rebound. I’m very pleased with him. I think he’s going to be a heck of an NBA player.”

    Teammate Danny Granger: “He brings that intensity, kind of that mad-dog intensity. I like to refer to him as a pitbull on the loose. He’s just attacking all over the place, and that’s the mentality you need.”

    The whole game wrap-up revolves around Tyler’s debut and has a nice anecdote about Antawn Jamison yelling at Tyler from the Washington bench.

    Oh yeah, the Pacers won 102-86.

    Tar Heel Tipoff Videos 

    Here are some pretty sweet videos to check out when you’ve got about ten minutes to kill. Tar Heel basketball writer Adam Lucas and Jones Angell from the Tar Heel Sports Network host the videos, introducing each clip with around 50 seconds of commentary that is definitely skippable (nothing against the guys, but the videos speak for themselves).

    No Tarheel fan can stand to miss “Summer Pick-Up with the Pros.” The video shows some of the best evidence for UNC being the top NBA talent producer – Brandon, Marvin, Ty, Vince, Rashad, Jawad, Raymond, Antawn – ALL on the same court. Even Hall of Famer Larry Brown is seen chatting up some players. It’s priceless to see Larry Drew II and Zeller describe their attempts at guarding Tar Heel legends. And, in an incredibly surprising and somewhat awkward moment, we see none other than Matt Dougherty clowning around with Sean May at around the 3:12 mark.

    Definitely check out “The Art of Shot Blocking,” as it is the best Ed Davis highlight reel I’ve seen thus far. We here at The Rafters can’t get enough of this kid, and you should expect to see much of the same this coming season.

    no way, jose.

    Harrison Barnes Blogs UNC Visit 

    So yeah, today is the first day of the blog and I should probably be talking about Late Night with Roy, but I live in D.C. and it’s kinda hard. So I’m gonna post about Harrison Barnes’ UNC visit. Which he recently blogged about. My thoughts……

    Harrison-Barnes-07081-717582
    Seriously!?! How can this kid not pick UNC? He visited during alumni weekend, when all the former greats were either on hand and playing or in attendance. I guess it’s a little slanted, because I’ve always looked up to the UNC greats and worshipped them since I was about eight years old, BUT c’mon! Jordan, Dean Smith, Larry Brown, Jamison, Carter, I’m not continuing. Harrison Barnes. COME TO UNC. You will not regret it. McCorkle Place is beautiful in the Spring time. The Pit will provide you with hours of people watching. Just do it. Just……do…….it, an appropriate slogan as the UNC team wears Jordan Brand.

    Whatever, it’s up to you. I’m just saying.
