It was an ugly and goofy shot that Tyler Hansbrough used to become North Carolina's all-time leading scorer.
In other words, it was perfect.
Anything besides ugly and goofy would've been inappropriate given the subject at hand. So count me among those who smiled when Hansbrough's patented muscle-through-a-double-team-and-th
row-an-awkward-shot-at-the-rim move banked in, because a large portion of his 2,302 career points have come in a similar way, which is just one of the reasons so many fans are turned off by his game.
You see, Hansbrough doesn't shoot like Stephen Curry.
Or dribble like James Harden.
Or jump like Blake Griffin.
And that's too bad.
But the North Carolina senior is one of the best in the history of college basketball at simply putting the ball through the rim by any means necessary. Low on style points, high on actual points. And in a bottom-line business, shouldn't that be all that matters?
Answer: Yes, I think so.
So congratulations to Tyler Hansbrough.
His UNC scoring record is now 2,302 ... and counting.
