Looking good!

Hope that half court shot isn't his highlight of the year!

In the fourth he looked like the only NBA quality player on the quart, including Barnes.

 

Looks like a steal.

I like his energy and intensity but his ball handling skills are extremely poor for a wing.  Don't get used to what you are seeing tonight.

Didn't see the game, but saw the stat sheet and the guy lit them up. When he came out in the draft he was believed to be one of if not the best pure shooter in his class, never lived up to that hopefully he can find his niche on our team.

player of the game tonight. 

Our bench and lineup is SUPER UPSIDE if Henry, Young, Johnson, Williams can play as high as their potential.

Based on today, he seems like a miniature Lance Stephenson. They both hustle up and down the floor. They both are out of control but have very nice speed. Henry can play some pretty good defense, a better shooter in my eyes than Stephenson. If Henry can play that sort of role for this team, with a little more of a scoring load, and do that consistently off the bench, he will be a big part to this teams success. Just my two cents. We could have Nash, Kobe, Johnson/Young/, Kaman, Pau, 2nd unit Blake/Farmar, Henry/Meeks, Young/Johnson, Hill and Kaman/Pau. That's a very nice bench.

Got to imagine how good the combo of him and Nick Young worked.

he seemed to have a good synergy with any lineup.

When him and Johnson were in the lineup we stopped the Warriors 13 straight times(or was it 11) either way.    That is what caused the comeback.

The only guy that seemed to mess with flow was Meeks.

But Henry works well with Johnson, Meeks or Williams, which is a good sign!  And if he can shoot like that off ball and cut to the basket effectively like that we'll have SO MANY options on offense!   AND he fights for rebounds and plays defense and has good length. 

If he remains consistent he'll be a gem.

Nash/[Farmar/Blake] Switch when either one is off or doing bad.

Kobe/NickYoung/Xavier

Wes/Xavier

Hill/Kelly? or Shawne?

Pau/Kaman

 

The ideal lineup.


Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Because he was born in Belgium and that's how they pronounce it there :)

 

He explains it here as well as why he loves playing for this team.

He's still green but the talent is obvious, so we need to refine him and work on him!! He won't be perfect every night and other nights he'll look REALLY green when his shot isn't falling but the talent is there and can be used.

And of all our 'prospects' we've had over the years. He's easily the best.

Yeah I sorta was too and then Majesty explained it. Slightly disappointing still though.
