Tyler Hansbrough Briefly Thought He Was Michael Jordan Last Night... Or Something.

North Carolina had this game under control for a while, and beat Oklahoma rather handily, but Tyler Hansbrough didn't exactly have his one shining moment in this one. In fact, he was dominated by Blake Griffin pretty much the entire time.

This dunk attempt was pretty much symbolic of how the entire game went for Hansbrough, who finished with only 8 points and 6 rebounds. For some crazy reason, Hansbrough was under the impression that he could dunk from way farther than he actually could, with Griffin right in his face.

The "dunk attempt" morphed quickly into a last-ditch effort to throw the ball into the hoop, once Hansbrough came to the realization that he simply wasn't Michael Jordan or Dwight Howard. Hilarity ensued.

He quickly remembered he was more Mark Madsen than Michael Jordan.

 I think he just felt bad for Oklahoma being up by 21 and that was his way of throwing them a bone...maybe?

Hansbrough will get his national title and fade into obscurity.

I think Hansbrough was "reverse posterized" on that play.  The guy seemingly tries so hard, but there's a snapshot of his NBA career.
