Excerpts: Tyler Hansbrough on "The Mac Attack", WFNZ, Charlotte

On the Bobcats’ being the highest drafting team that's expressed interest in him:

"Nah, I don’t think so. I think I have a chance to go a little higher (than #12), but we’ll see what happens It’s hard to tell right now, it’s still early. A lot of things can happen, but the draft is approaching and we’ll have to wait and see what happens."

On how he felt the PreDraft Combine displayed his talents:

"Yeah, I mean, I’m just doing what I do. A lot of people have doubted me and things like that, which is great. It seems like I’m proving a lot of people wrong. Still at the same time, I do it because the NBA has always been a dream of mine and, like I said, I’m not going out there and doing anything that I haven’t done before, a lot of people just don’t see some of the skills I have or they don’t think I’m as athletic as I am…which I am athletic."

On whether he’s motivated by draftniks underestimating him:

"Well, yeah it does motivate me a little bit. Still, at the same time, I kind of laugh at it. These are probably a bunch of guys who just sit in their basements and probably just write out mock drafts and do this or do that. They haven’t followed me for four years and they haven’t seen exactly what I’ve done or they wouldn’t be saying that stuff. I could really care less what they’re going to think but I’m just going to go out and do what I do and see what happens."
