As you have seen from my previous posts, I have started to build the set of 2012/13 Panini Elite Rookie Inscriptions. That set includes two batches of rookies from the 2011 and 2012 draft. Today, another batch of rookies I’m starting to build, the 2009 draft class and we will begin with Mr. Tyler Hansbrough the card number 111 of the Rookie Ticket collection. He was the Power Forward of Indiana Pacers who stands at 6’9 and weighs at 250 lbs during his rookie season. The recipient of Wooden Award and National Player of the Year in 2008.
Drafted by the Pacers using its 13th pick in the first round of 2009 NBA draft. His rookie best output was on December 11, 2009 where Indiana played against New Jersey Nets. He scored 21 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in a win with the score of 107 – 91.
Looking on the resume of Hansbrough, you can see that this kid have a bright future in the NBA. His stats increase on his sophomre season but on the following year the Pacers has addded a new player in the name of David West. He became a sixth man player and then his stat went on downward spiral. On 2013-14 NBA season he became a free agent and he signed a two year contract with the Toronto Raptors.
