We may not be personally acquainted but there’s one thing I know about you (reader) – John Henson’s arms are much, much longer than yours; and what does Henson use ’em for? getting loose as a weak side shot blocker – anticipates plays well and uses his quick feet to rotate effectively; doesn’t have a ton of offense outside finishing catches as a roll man and a few FOH finishes with his left hand*; struggles staying out of foul trouble, much like former running mate, Larry Sa– let’s not go there…; full-time, starting center potential? – Henson needs to watch a continuous loop of Tyson Chandler (PHX)’s championship year w/ Dallas until it hits home

Signature Shot: lefty hook
