Nice.  I hope we can sign him to a fair contract.  He actually wants to stay and play here, might be hard to find players like that lol.

Agreed Zax, I'm in the "keep Gerald" camp but I haven't always been.  I have just been thinking about how good this guy could be if we actually had scoring talent around him.

I love Hendo, I really hope we bring him back.  Even if hes not the starter next year (for some reason) he'd be a great sixth man.

I really do love the effort and the hustle from Henderson.  BUT I feel like we can find an upgrade in the next two years...  My heart would love to see us keep him long term, and for him to really turn it on next year, but if a guy like McLemore fell (crazy things have happened..sometimes?), how do you pass him up?  In the recent SI Mock they have us taking Victor Oladipo...who sounds lot like Henderson when he came out...

 

I'm glad I'm not a NBA GM...  I guess I'm pretty clueless...  Again, I love Henderson, but the question is, is he truly a long term Hornet?

I know a lot of fans stopped following the team toward the end of last season, and while a lot of fans quit, Gerald Henderson did not.

 

Hendo (March): 20.1 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 3.3 apg

Hendo (April): 17.3 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 3.9 apg

 

Based on how he played toward the end of the year, he needs to be kept.

I also forgot to mention, Gerald Henderson was 11th in scoring for shooting guards.

Good posts CP. We really need to bring Hendo back, because he turned it up at the end of the year when he was told to be aggressive.

Hopefully the team can get something done and resign him, since he seems to want to stay around.

This is definitely worth mentioning again.  This guy is a class act.  He never quit despite being on a terrible team.  Yeah, it's a contract year, but I don't feel that way with Hendo.  He plays hard, he's rugged, and just needs some talent around him.  Mentioned above, but even if we keep him as a 6th man, pay him fairly, he'll be worth it.  You just have to keep good players who want to play in this city.

Look...I like hendo...and he for sure played well the last 2 months of the season...but what about the other 3 years? As a season ticket holder I have gotten to see him struggle and disappear completely in games and be clearly overmatched against his opponents. I think he would be a 6th man of the year candidate off the bench...but at the position he plays...I think we need to aim higher.

5 or 6 million a year and I'm probably in. But anything more than that and we overpaid. Remember he was on the trade block in February for a bag of peanuts and we didn't get any bites.

I'd like to preface this post by saying that I'm a UNC fan and hated Henderson at Duke, but I'm a big fan his now.

 

So let's get this started...

 

What do you mean the other three years? He average 15.1 points per game in 2011-12 (his first year as a starter) season. If you remember in 2009-10 Henderson didn't play because of Stephen Jackson and Raja Bell being the go to guys, Henderson only average 8 minutes per game as a rookie. In 2010-11, Jackson was still on the team and Henderson had to play second fiddle averaging 9.6 points in 24 minutes. I'd also like to point out that these past two years Henderson has only averaged around 32 minutes per game... Now when Henderson plays over 35 minutes a game. he is almost guaranteed to scored 20+ points and in three games this year he scored 34 points or more.

 

The problem with Bobcats/Hornets fans is the fact that they are comparing Henderson to Kobe, Harden, Wade etc...

 

The fact is that Henderson was 10th in points per game for shooting guards in 2011-12 and 11th in points per game for shooting guards in 2012-13. Essentially we have a top 10 shooting guard and people want to get rid of him... why?

 

Let's check to see if Henderson actually gets overmatched...

 

Vs. Joe Johnson 4/6 (Henderson: 22 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals; Johnson: 15 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals)

Vs. J.R. Smith 3/29 (Henderson: 35 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals; Smith: 37 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block)

Vs. DeMar DeRozan 3/20 (Henderson: 21 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 block; DeRozan: 19 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists)

Vs. DeMar DeRozan 3/15 (Henderson: 22 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals; DeRozan: 9 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal)

Vs. Thabo Sefalosha 3/8 (Henderson: 21 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists; Sefalosha: 13 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block)

Vs. Aaron Afflalo 2/19 (Henderson: 24 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists; Afflalo: 18 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block)

Vs. Kobe Bryant 2/8 (Henderson: 20 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 1 block; Bryant: 20 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 block)

Vs. Stephen Curry 12/21 (Henderson: 23 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 block; Curry: 27 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks)

 

On paper he might be over-matched, but when it comes to effort; no one outworks Hendo.
