Crazy stat line, just real inconsistent though.
His past 2 games prior, 2 points 1 rebound.

About time, Im prolly confusing him with one of their other project bigs, but werent expectations pretty high for him going into the season?

Not really. Iirc, ppl just thought he'd be a solid defensive player instantly, and that he had the potential to be a starting big man.

You might be thinking of larry sanders, he was supposed to have a better year than henson (and has played well)

I was hoping the Magic got Henson in the Redick trade, but I'm happy with Harris who had 30pts-5asst-19rbds. Henson has more potential though IMO.

Those were pretty high expectations considering he failed to even approximate them.

NVM checked out his numbers, they are somewhat decent but it hasn't translated into increase PT, which leads me to believe hes disappointed someone at least somewhat.

Its either him or Udoh that Im thinking about. All of their bigs seem fairly comparable so I get lost in the shuffle, but Im sure at least one of the 2 let the team down.

I remember reading that Sanders was a dissappointment in preseason, but that he quickly turned it around.

Looking at their stats right now, I guess it was prolly Udoh since Henson is surprisingly productive.

He's shown the potential for this before, it's just the Bucks coach is terrible and can never seem to establish him (or any other big besides sanders) into a solid rotation. He just has to get stronger...but he has tremendous skill on both sides of the floor.

Meanwhile, Andre Drummond, who is consistent, and who doesn't suck posts 29 & 11 on 10-11 shooting and no one is talking about it. Vucevic and Harris do something that hasn't been done in 40 years, and we're talking about John Henson.

It was an impressive game by him on a night full of incredible performances. He's been incredibly underwhelming for the most part this season.

Tough to overwhelm when on one night he plays 20 minutes and then the next night he plays 4.

A lot of you talking about his consistency just simply don't realize that Henson has not been getting consistent minutes. Tough to play well when your minutes are so sporadic.

It's a good fantasy game, but 41% shooting and a loss makes it lose some of it's luster IMO.

Not trying to be a hater, I just simply don't think it's topic worthy. And the 'who dun it' aspect of this topic is hilariously bad. Can anyone name the last player to post 20 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks, and two big macs while wearing black gym shoes?

Bro you're wrong on so many levels Vucevic I'll give it to you but besides his game(which is debatable) Henson stood out the most and talk about being consistent, why does Andre Drummond shoot 37% from the free throw line?

Just because no one talked about a game Drummond had(because it happens more often than the Henson game) doesn't mean you got to go in and undersale him and act like Drummond is some Tim Duncan. When Drummond has a great game like this I'm pretty sure he'll get some kudos.

shooting 52% from the free throw line is what was costing the Lakers some games this season

Ok, not sure how after 3 posts you still didn't provide any factual information.

Drummond could shoot negative 37 % from the line and I wouldn't care. He dominated a team by himself and won the game. 10-11 from the field for 29 points in a win is A LOT better than 17 points on 41% and some meaningless blocks in a fast paced game in which they lost and rebounds were plentiful (I mean, come on, Orlando had 59 rebounds between 2 players on the opposite end of the court). Someone had to grab them.

Not impressive.

Also, this isn't a popularity contest. Drummond is 100000x better than Henson, just thought it was funny.

Mmm, those are valid points (I guess?). You really didn't say anything factual, or even legible.

Not arguing he isn't but in these games last night the more impressive game was Hensons. Popularity contest is what you made it when you came in a discredited Henson and brought up Drummonds meaningless game to support your thoughts, which wasn't impressive.

Cause when players play the same position as someone else on somebody's favorite team and they have a decent game they get butthurt they aren't mentioned...Called jealousy(woman trait)

Potential is the key word sure he sucks and is super raw but he has the tools to be a solid Center.

Unnecessary. Sorry I'm not as impressed with his game as some others are. It was in a fast paced, balls to the walls game that featured two 20 & 30 games. Perhaps bringing up Drummond was a mistake, but I would still rather have his performance. 29 and 11 on 10/11 shooting and a win is awesome.

Yeah but you come into a thread to basically attack the OP for him making a thread based on something that has happened just 4 times in the last 30 years to spew your agenda. Why not appreciate the performance for what it was state that it wasn't the only impressive performance on the night and move on. You've basically derailed the thread for your own selfish reasoning.

MonroeFAN
04-11-2013, 11:18 AM
and for that, I'm sorry. I just thought it was funny that on a night full of incredible performances, his is the one that sticks out.

From the same game, Vucevic had 30 points on 50% shooting, 20 rebounds, 2 blocks, 5 assists, and a win. I think I would rather have that. But I don't want to be a troll, so if a mod wants to delete my rant then that's fine by me. I will learn to not lash out in the future.

The only thing that is inconsistent about Henson is the playing time that Jim Boyland gives him. It's hard for any player to give consistent production when they aren't given consistent minutes.

I really like Henson.I know there are concerns about his weight but I think he makes up for it because he's got so much length.That's going to be a pretty good frontcourt down the road with Henson and Sanders.

MonroeFAN
04-11-2013, 11:39 AM
if it pans out it will be an awesome front court, but it's missing a center.

They are both extremely long and 6'11''. Sanders is already capable of playing Center and as Henson puts on some weight he should be able to get minutes there too.

He had an 18/18 game against miami earlier in the season. He will give the heat some trouble in the first round if he sees the court.

His rookie season is almost a mirror image of Vuc's last season. Statistically speaking he could potentially turn into a better defensive version of Vuc with ample PT.

Don't know why these threads always have to become an e-peen contest between who's player had a better night. This thread is about Henson's incredible night and giving him props for it. Go make a thread about Drummond or whoever else if you deem it necessary

Phenomenonsense
04-11-2013, 01:34 PM
I never wanted Henson. I still don't think he'll ever gain weight, which was my overwhelming red flag, but if he can make due without it, something I also thought he wouldn't be able to do, over the course of several seasons then I'll be happy for him. We all know Joe D had him as his #2 pick in the draft after Drummond. At least if he does well, I can still put some faith back into Joe.

If he can get to a near Sanders! level shot blocking level, and the two could throw on 50 lbs combined, they could make a formidable front court. Especially if they can find a workable guard situation.

They need a coach who will commit to a real line-up. I think a solidified rotation with an Illiasova, Sanders, Henson front court with Redick, one of Ellis/Jennings (not both), with a facilitating guard and a better bench they could elevate their status in an Eastern conference that will be wide open again.

On a side note, I have come to think that the coach that could turn this team around is Stan Van Gundy. I think he could construct something successful out of the potential in this roster.

Maybe he doesn't get minutes because he isn't that good

John Henson has just 5 double doubles this season. Not trying to knock him further, the PT obviously isn't there, but I'm not sure I follow.

Edit : 4, not 5.

who cares if it happened 4 times in the last 30 years... it was a fast paced game and went into overtime... it really isn't that impressive... when teams played faster paces (50/60's) Wilt had games like this all the time...

Did you see that kobe had a stat line last night that had never been done before? No one is making a thread for that... why? because it is just another who cares stat line...

it's great people know how to use databases these days... doesn't mean it is noteworthy
