Tyler Hansbrough Backs Down From Metta World Peace (w/ VIDEO)
Tyler Hansbrough has always had "Cookie Monster" eyes (or Beaker, or any number of Muppets with no eyelids), but I didn't think it was physically possible for his eyes to open any wider. However, when he turned around and saw Metta, Hansbrough's eyes almost swallowed his face. Awesome.
This video immediately shoots past "Tyler Hansbrough Sticks Up For Little Brother Ben Like It's The Elementary School Playground"...
...and "Gerald Henderson Turns Tyler Hansbrough's Face Into His Own Version Of The Red River"...
...in the pantheon of great Tyler Hansbrough-related videos. (For the record, all the videos of Tyler Hansbrough actually playing basketball are tied for last place on that list.)
So, the next time you're tuned into a Toronto Raptor basketball game
once you're done calling the suicide hotline, remember that "Tyler Hansbrough, Tough Guy" is a phony. A fraud. A fugazzi.
And when there's a scrap between a spastic suburban kid from Poplar Bluff, Missouri, or a lunatic from Queens who has witnessed someone stabbed to death with a table leg, take the guy from Queens.
Always take the guy from Queens.
