I think he does. I like him too. Every few years there's a guy that comes around who I feel will be an NBA player because he possesses an abundance of confidence & competitiveness that will overcome their lack of physical ability. The three guys in the last decade who I felt that way about were Steve Blake, Jared Dudley, and Greivis Vasquez. I feel the same way about Henderson. He's too dumb, stubborn, & competitive to know that he belongs in the D-League.

He has an NBA skill (shooting) that teams can use off of the bench. There's a place for him in the pick & roll heavy NBA, IMO.

Reminds me of Steph Curry and how he was an elite shooter but I thought he didn't have the body to play in the NBA. Turns out I was really wrong about Steph.

I was really wrong about Steph too, but to be fair he had PG skills that weren't really on display at Davidson, because he was rightfully their #1 scoring option by a wide margin. Steph doesn't have the body to play the SG, but he has some very good PG skills. That's what separates him from a guy like Fredette. If Henderson has that as well, he'll be a very good player.

I wasnt.

5 players vs 22+. Pretty simple.

The make a bigger impact in games than football backups do. That's why there are 6th man of the year awards. Some guys are just better off the bench.

It is. Most of the Warriors make under $5 million per year. Jefferson and Biedrins were given stupid contracts when they were starters which inflates the Warriors payroll. The minimum for a 10 yr vet is around 1.3 million.

Nice win...they are going to be tough to hold off for a playoff spot IMO. Lakers really f**ked up by losing 3 straight. Dallas is playing really well right now.
