tyler hansbrough defends brother

The proverb “blood is thicker than water” can be seen in action in many different areas of society.  And sports is certainly among them, as was proven last night during an NBA match-up between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Earlier this year, Tyler Hansbrough and his younger brother, Ben, became just the fourth pair of brothers to suit up for the same team in NBA history.  And last night, they were almost the first pair of brothers in NBA history to take part in a brawl together, as Tyler nearly came to blows with Tristan Thompson after the Cavs’ rookie elbowed Ben in the back of the neck while battling in the paint.

I guess we should have expected that type of reaction from a guy who goes by the name of “Psycho T.”  Luckily, Tyler was able to control his rage, as only Thompson was issued a flagrant foul in this instance.
