Tyler Hansbrough Can’t Dunk Like Blake Griffin
Great find from The Dagger, which demonstrates not all dunkers are created equal. While Tyler and the boys beat Oklahoma for a spot in the Final Four, Griffin proved he was the best post player in the building, while Hansbrough proved he can’t throw it down — or dominate the post — in the same manner has his Oklahoma counterpart.
As we can see in the first video, Tyler elevated a tad earlier and although he wasn’t going to make it to the front of the rim, that didn’t stop him from trying to throw it through, ala, Dwight Howard’s Superman layup.
Maybe Hansbrough got the idea from watching Griffin hit his head on the side of the backboard while completing his assault on the rim.
Of course, Hansbrough and his can’t-dunk-like-Blake-Griffin-self is laughing all the way to Detroit.
