Some old-school Psycho T: Tyler Hansbrough tackles Mike Dunleavy (VIDEO)

Feb 20, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

What’s impressive is that Tyler Hansbrough uses very good tackling form here — he gets low, drives with his legs, leads with his shoulder.

Of course, because this was a basketball game between the Raptors and Bulls, Hansbrough and Mike Dunleavy received double technicals for this little incident.

Late in the third quarter Dunleavy crashed into Hansbrough going for a rebound and when Hansbrough got up his first instinct apparently was to tackle Dunleavy for a five yard loss. Except, again, wrong sport and all. These two do have a history going back to when Hansbrough was in Indiana and Dunleavy was a Buck.

Still, very Psycho T.

The Bulls held on to win the game 94-92.

      nothing says World Peace like some RonRon violence.

      btw World Peace backed down from Ben Wallace. There’s always someone more of a badass than you

      Five yard loss. LMAO. WTF IS TYLER DOING? I’m surprised he wasn’t ejected in today’s p**** NBA.

      He is officially **Psychopath-T**.

        If I turned around and Ron was right behind me–his face a foot from mine, and with that gleam in his eye–my pulse would spike.

    Well, considering Duke and Carolina play each other tonight this tussle was very appropriate.

    You’re supposed to drive through with your hips, not your legs.

      If you have the ability to “drive through” with your hips, you are some sort of odd mutant

      • asimonetti88 - Feb 20, 2014 at 12:43 PM

        Not really all that hard… you can’t just hit them and expect them to fall, you need to drive through them. The follow through is the most essential part of the tackle, the part that separates a hit from a tackle.

      • sumkat - Feb 20, 2014 at 8:20 PM

        everyone knows the follow through is essential

        everyone also knows it’s done with your legs. How do you possibly follow through without using your legs? If you are able to follow through on a tackle without moving your legs (apparently while moving your hips), as I said, you are some sort of odd mutant

      • asimonetti88 - Feb 20, 2014 at 10:13 PM

        lol… try making a tackle while keeping your hips stationary. I’ll be watching, amused.

      you gotta love the double standards that it’s ok for black comedians to push racist stereotypes.

      • miamiheatles - Feb 20, 2014 at 1:29 PM

        Isn’t it great?! Afro-American baby!

      • trickybastard - Feb 20, 2014 at 1:44 PM

        What’s great? The pussies of the NBA? Remember Carmelo Anthony’s girl swing and then run away? Or Marcus Camby’s girl swing?

        If you want to see fighting, tune into hockey. Oh, white people. Doesn’t fit in neatly with the racist stereotype does it?

    It is not generally know but the Raptors players have their own nickname for TH. They call him ‘Gucci’ according to Amir Johnson. Don’t ask me why. I haven’t a clue but that is what they called him.

    I believe Gucci tackled Dunleavy after basketball player turned-over-the hill goon Nzir Muhammad tackled two Raptors players.

    And if Tyler Hansborough was named Leroy Hansborough he would be a thug and everything that is supposedly wrong with the NBA. This guys sucks and he got away with the same nonsense in college but again his antics have always been viewed differently because he a clean cut kid.

    • trickybastard - Feb 20, 2014 at 6:38 PM

      you know the media is made up of black people too right?

    Actually that was how we used to block in high school before we were forced to use our hands.
