Indiana Pacers Select Tyler Hansbrough at 13th; 1st Heel Drafted

I'm not sure anyone expected Hansbrough to go this high, or even necessarily be the first Carolina player picked, but the Indiana Pacers obviously have confidence in him. The New York crowd at the draft site, not so much, chanted "Overrated." The post-draft interview points out that the Pacers run an up-tempo offense not unlike UNC's, and Stuart Scott tosses out a gratuitous Dudley Bradley reference.
