Former All America Tyler Hansbrough made a few records fall at North Carolina during his four-year career. Now, the Indiana Pacers' forward is making the sky fall at least in the imaginations of people who want to listen to him read "Chicken Little."
As part of the NBA franchise's Call-A-Pacer program, folks can dial the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library to hear Hansbrough read the children's story. (Dial 317-275-4444 to listen to Hansbrough's recorded story.)
Former Tar Heels teammate Bobby Frasor couldnt help but poke fun at his pal about reciting lines including, The sky is falling on Twitter this morning, writing This could be the greatest thing ever, and listing the number. Frasor also tweeted to author Nicholas Sparks: if you need to sell some more audio books, then I suggest hiring @THANS50 and his angelic voice to narrate.
Former Duke players Josh McRoberts and Dahntay Jones who now team with Hansbrough in Indianapolis already had their turns, by the way. McRoberts read Dr. Seuss Im Not Going to Get Up Today the week of April 18; Jones read Giraffes Cant Dance by Giles Andreae the week of April 4. Former Blue Devil Mike Dunleavy will read T is for Terrible by Peter McCarty, beginning June 20.
