CHARLOTTE -- After four up-and-down NBA seasons, Gerald Henderson has picked the perfect time for his professional blow up -- mere months before he becomes a restricted free agent in the NBAs summer meat market.
Itd be easy to say Hendersons riding the typical contract year wave, but this hasnt been a season long thing. This is an end-of-season surge thats likely made him millions and turned him into a guy the Bobcats are going to have a hard time letting go this offseason. Over the last nine games, hes averaging 24.7 points per game on 52.8 percent shooting and has two games of 35 points and one of 34 in that stretch.
Is this the real Henderson or a contract-inspired anomaly? Are Kemba Walker and Henderson really the Bobcats backcourt of the future and a cornerstone around to the build their team around or is their recent success a case of being the only ones who can create their own shot?
Obviously, one could twist the story the other direction, too, though: Does being on a tea...
