I feel like there's more to what we're seeing that's keeping LB from playing this guy. Derrick Brown's obviously getting some minutes, and while I was watching his intro dance with the rest of the team tonight, it seemed to me that he was accepting whatever the role LB gave him and getting along with the rest of the team. Sure, it was just Derrick fooling around with the team, but getting high fives from his teammates and just enjoying his time as a rookie made me think more about Henderson's situation.
Gerald Henderson is probably having trouble with his pride first of all. He probably didn't get on LB's good side after refusing to go to D-league (although I'm sure there's a reason for LB sending Hendo there). But I'm starting to think that Hendo had problems with his attitude or work ethic to begin with, and LB wanted to fix that by sending him to the D-league I don't know.
I maybe speculating, but watching Hendo playing HORSE with Jordan made me think that he might be an outcast of the Bobcats group. Maybe 'cause he's a Dukie, maybe it's his attitude, don't know, but I'm starting to feel that it might be more than just his performance during practice.
What do you think about this Hendo mess? I hope this doesn't carry over to next year, because he doesn't even have much of a value right now, even if we wanted to trade him.
