Doesn’t it seem like Tyler Hansbrough just attracts these kinds of hits?
Hansbrough was on the receiving end of a cheap shot the other night in Detroit, where the Pacers had hung a 20-point lead on the Pistons. He scampered up to the 3-point line and a set a pick, throwing Detroit point guard Will Bynum off his path. Bynum, perturbed to have to work his way around Hansbrough, gave him the usual off-the-pick shove — then punched him right in the gut.
The eagle-eyed referees caught it and tossed Bynum out of the game, and the NBA has now announced that Bynum will be suspended a game for the blow.
Given the amount of random hits Hansbrough takes, however, maybe someone should take a look into what makes this guy attract such cheap shots.
Check out the original incident in the video below.

Pacers. Pistons. Palace. Punches. The only thing missing was Ron Artest and a flying beer cup (such a waste).
History was nowhere near repeating itself Saturday night when there was a little violence during the Pacers/Pistons game. Rather than seeing a player dash into the stands after an unruly fan

This incident made the Palace of Auburn Hills look like an amateur boxing ring. And no––I'm not referring to the notorious Pacers-Pistons "Malice in the Palice" brawl of 2004 starring Ron Artest.This time around, it was only Pistons point guard Will Bynum throwing the punches, as he took an untimely swing at Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough with under 9 minutes...
The biggest brawl of the NBA season thus far took place on Tuesday night between the Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors. The fracas started between Roy Hibbert and David Lee and ended up with almost every player on the court in a tangled mess of pushing and elbowing. Double technical fouls were handed out to Hibbert and Lee, Hibbert and Thompson, and David West and Curry...

Danny Granger played his first game coming back from a knee injury for the Indiana Pacers against the Detroit Pistons Saturday night. Although, Granger went one-of-ten in his shot attempts, it didn’t stop the support from his teammates who went nuts and mobbed him. It just shows how important Granger is to them, as well [...]The post The Indiana Pacers’ Bench Erupts When Danny...
The Detroit Pistons just finished getting blown out twice by the Indiana Pacers. The Atlanta Hawks were looking to continue the trend against Detroit.
The Pistons were still missing the injured Brandon Knight and Andre Drummond, and were also missing dynamo point guard Will Bynum who was suspended a game for his flagrant 2 foul on Indiana...
Even up 31 points on the New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert was not all too happy getting taken out of the game. The 7’2” Hibbert was then offered a bottle of water by the Pacers water boy. Too bad it wasn’t Adam Sandler as the Waterboy sitting behind the bench.
The Indiana Pacers defeated the Golden State Warriors Tuesday night, but the win didn’t come without drama. It started out as a shove match between David Lee and Roy Hibbert, a whistle was called, and the shoving continued.

Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers was ejected from the game against the Golden State Warriors after a fight broke out between the two teams.
Midway through the fourth quarter of the Warriors-Pacers game in Indy Tuesday, both sides got into an ugly scrap that spilled into the first row of the stands. It started when Roy Hibbert and David Lee got into a shoving match. The melee escalated as the two were attempted to be separated and Hibbert continued to toss dudes aside (mainly Stephen Curry…twice!) like rag dolls.

Steph Curry was on the wrong end of trying to stop the fight as he took a swing to the face from Hibbert. It appeared David West threw a punch as the two team’s entered the stands. Hibbert was ejected, West/Curry...
Yes, the Indiana Pacers beat the Detroit Pistons again, this time a little closer at 90-72, but the game itself paled in comparison to Danny Granger's return.
Granger came off the bench, missed his first 8 shots, hit one, and finished 1-10 from the field, with 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block in 19 minutes.

The New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers met in the playoffs a total of six times between the 1993-2000 seasons. We all remember Indiana Pacer great Reggie Miller, who was deemed the nickname, “The Knick-Killer,” and oh how could we forget about his 8 points in just 18.7 seconds in game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals. Or even better yet, as Knicks fans may rather...
