Tyler Hansbrough lists most annoying Duke players

The entire NCAA Tournament field has already been announced for the men and the women. Some First Four teams (hello, UVA) have proven they didn’t belong. Others (Grambling State) provided exciting basketball in their first trip to the Big Dance.

The real fun starts on Thursday as sports fanatics across the country watch as their brackets hang on or get busted. Who will be the Cinderella teams? Will the favorites advance to the final?

One of the NCAA Tournament favorites is North Carolina, which enters with a 27-7 record as the West’s top seed. The Tar Heels built an eight-game win streak, which included completing the season sweep of Duke, before falling to NC State in the ACC Tournament final.

Speaking of the Duke, which is seeded fourth in the South Region, one of the greatest players to don a UNC uniform gave his four most annoying Blue Devils in a recent interview with FanDuel.

“JJ Redick, just because he was so good,” Tyler Hansbrough said during a recent interview on FanDuel TV’s “Run It Back.” “I think so many people hated him in college, he kind of egged it on a little bit. I will put him up there. Then you got to go with Christian Laettner. Seems like he’s the poster boy for Duke. You could say Grayson Allen because of his tripping. Gerald Henderson is probably up there. Me and Gerald are pretty good friends now, but back in the day, there was a lot of hatred because of “that” incident.”

It’s hard to argue with Psycho T’s list, particularly his Laettner and Allen choices. Both are talented players, with Allen still playing in the NBA for the Phoenix Suns, but easy to be hated by the Tar Heel faithful.
