Hansbrough makes impression
Mike Wells reports on Tyler Hansbrough's work through the summer league practices and the impression he's left on teammates. As I mentioned in my summer league primer, this is a time for learning and expanding the game of young players. It is part of the development process not a final exam, which Mike captures with this comment about Hansbrough adjusting to Jim O'Brien and the pro game.
O'Brien recently pulled aside Hansbrough and fellow rookie A.J. Price and told them it's OK if they don't know something because they're "not supposed to know everything" as rookies.
Long odds nothing new for Price
Bruno looks at the tough road ahead for A.J. Price in his quest to stick on the Pacers roster.
