@Peezus Most of his score at will points come off a fast break against 6'3 or smaller guards. If you really think Ben Simmons is going to be scoring 20ppg like LeBron James, your crazy. I love the way he plays, sits by the free throw making plays for others. His defense is incredible. And his rebounding skills is great. But what I'm saying is if he can't knock down shots in the NBA, he will not be a franchise player.
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. Returning for his junior season gives him another year to grow both physically and as an all-around player. That will do wonders for his ability to contribute at the next level since I just do not think he can be a factor 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 though Warrick is more skilled on the perimeter.
