He'll always be a great rebounder just because of his ridiculous length. Guy can grab a rebound from the top of the shotclock :lol:

Larry always seems to have a bit of trouble with the bigs who can step out and shoot the jumper. His default setting right now is to protect the rim and go for the block which often results in him leaving guys open for mid range jumpers. Gotta clean that up, but he's only getting better.

Oh and I went Jennings.

We got killed early off the glass but it ended up close.

Probably because Henson logged most of his minutes at the end of the game 8-)

Henson's length/hands combination is RARE.

No doubt this is Jennings. But honorable mention to me for not bumping the draft thread. Invoking it constantly is still pretty bad though.

I'll gladly eat a crow buffet on Henson. He's a lot more fluid offensively than I thought. I still think he's going to need to improve his strength to improve his FG% and also work hard on his FT's if he's going to have a respectable overall efficiency, but he definitely has offensive skill. Ironically, the area he might need the most improvement right now is help defense.

I just wish everyone could enjoy the ride. I see both sides believe me. Seed and situation never concern me. It's in or out. That's all

Right, the irony from my perspective is that if you were to bump that thread, you'd see a bunch of stuff where I defended Henson and the types of shots he took/created for himself, and you'd probably also see me calling him an NBA ready defender. Such is life.

I'd say as of today, based on a really, really small sample size, he's probably 5 or 6 in a 2012 redraft. Davis, Drummond, MKG, Lillard ahead. MAYBE Barnes. Obviously way too early, just saying.

I hated the Henson pick but his play over SL and in the NBA has changed my mind about him.
