We just drafted his replacement in Hansbrough in terms of setting an example and bringing it every night whether it's a frigid January night a dozen games out or Game 7 in mid-June. I think once he hangs it up he'll remain involved with the franchise, broadcaster, assistant (I think he'd make a great one), front office, something.
He will def. be a good mentor to Tyler, Hibbert and the other bigs. I think they can learn a lot about how to handle yourself as a basketball player and how to understand the game as a business. Good thing though, his replacement in Tyler is a good one bc he has a good head on his shoulders. He was a workhorse in UNC, I expect him to get the most out of his ability in INdy
