I really like the Pelicans tonite. Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson are becoming a force. Jrue Holiday and Ish Smith can light up the scoreboard. Realistically too Pelicans is the better team at home or on the road.
Has shown steady improvement and will continue to get better
Very, very thin; must get stronger
Not at all pysical; gets pushed around in the paint
Face-up game is still raw and needs grooming
Awful free throw shooter
Sometimes tries to be too much of a finese finisher
Summary: Because of his combination of length and athleticism for someone 6-10, Henson has been on the NBA radar since arriving at North Carolina. He is a very intriguing prospect, but his rail thin frame is a serious concern as he will have to try and battle grown men in the post on a nightly basis. If he declares for the 2011 NBA Draft, he still a likely mid-first-round pick based on potential alone. I just do not think he can be a regular contributor in the league until he adds some muscle or becomes a better outside shooter.
Player Comparison: JaVale McGee/Hakim Warrick. This is a tough one since Henson is such a rare prospect. Henson is similar to McGee in their length, athleticism and shot blocking ability, but is about 40 pounds lighter than the Wizard center. That is where the Warrick comparison comes in because Warrick is also lengthy and athletic, but has a more similar frame and offensive ability as Henson.
