Appreciating Gerald Henderson

Photobucket

That was written by Chad Ford of ESPN after we had selected Gerald Henderson with the twelfth overall pick, and looking back at that now, we can see that he was spot on with what we're coming to expect from Henderson. Just knowing that we picked him for a reason, and now we're watching him develop into exactly who we wanted him to be is a terrific thing to look at in hindsight. Just having that knowledge makes me appreciate Henderson more and more, especially since my crush on Gerald Henderson is starting to make me a borderline homer for him. Anyway, what other piece of revisionist history can we use to feel good about having Gerald Henderson on this team? Lets look at the draft Ford was giving out grades to! We're not going to bother discussing the players picked before Henderson (because there was nothing we could do about that) so let's see what happened after the Henderson pick. Literally every player that could be considered as "better" players than Henderson were all PGs. Obviously, in our position with a newly minted Augustin and Felton, we had no room for them anyway. So, as we look into the past with all our knowledge now it looks like Henderson was the best player available at the time. Good for Henderson, good for us.
