Not really, because the only piece attacking it (queen), if it took it, would leave its own knight hanging. 

Ending shows why you should spend the move to give your king an escape...

You're right, lol. Although, is that still called hanging? It's defended, but attacked more than it's defended.

yeah, i think it is, as long as you can capture a piece and gain material from it, it's hanging
