I have to say, I am a little surprised that tyshawn is getting to play, and looks like on a pretty regular bases , good for him, I wish tyshawn nothing but the best, a pretty good point guard for us, just didn't think he had quite enough to make it in the NBA glad I am wrong. good luck buddy hoping you have continued success. we are getting quite a group of former hawks playin in the NBA GO HAWKS

I was watching the Nets play last night and Tyshawn looked great. In the 4th quarter, He blew by his man in the lane and dunked the ball rather than just laying it off the glass with 2 Raptors trying to block the shot. Tyshawn is just so quick. We Kansas fans really don't understand how great a player he was for us. Started all 4 years, gave us thrills, chills and groans. I miss this guy

I miss him too! There were so many Kansas fans that seemed to want to run him out of here until late his senior year. I remember him being a flashy freshman with lots of potential and while it didn't seem to blossom until December his senior year, I'll always remember his quickness and really his ability to get into the lane and score. Plus he wasn't a bad perimeter shooter either. I got the set of Kansas Basketball cards that Upper Deck released and there were several Tyshawn's included and I was reminded of just how good of a Jayhawk he was!

Deron Williams was listed as injured on the box score, that accounted for his increased playing time.
