NBA 24/7 365:
How does a Gerald Henderson Mozgov compare to a Blake Griffin Mozgov? Well… more favorably than you might imagine, I’d say.
With about eight minutes to play in LA’s eventual one-point victory over Charlotte, Henderson curled into the lane and received a bounce pass from Bismack Biyombo. All in one motion, he gathered the ball, and himself, before exploding off of two feet. With the ball in his right hand, Henderson wound up for a powerful finish. Dwight Howard made a half-assed attempt to prevent the basket by shoving Henderson in the waist, but the contact only propelled him higher. Finally, at the peak of his jump, Henderson quite literally threw it down.
First of all, what in the hell is going on with Dwight Howard? He got mashed on twice during the preseason, and he’s been on the wrong side of two POTDs in the last three days. Pretty strange considering he had previously appeared on the posterized list just two times in four years. Oddly, it’s as though the less he tries on defense the more he gets dunked on. Usually it’s the other way around.
Alright, time to rate this dunk. I’ve been thinking about this all morning, and I’ve finally made my decision: I’m going with a 9.5. I’ve never deemed any dunk a 9.5 before, but I think this is the play that finally calls for it. Everything about the slam screams 10, but that ultra-weak contest from Dwight simply doesn’t warrant putting this poster amongst the absolute best of the best. Unfortunately, there’s just not enough contact here for me to award a perfect score. Remember, this isn’t a dunk contest, but a poster dunk contest.

Usually when the Lakers are in a highlight on here, they’re the ones throwing down dunks or tossing around sweet alley-oops, but not tonight. Tonight that award belongs to Gerald Henderson of the Charlotte Bobcats. Yes, you read that right. In the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 101-100 win over the Bobcats on Tuesday night, Henderson gathered a pass in the lane and took off, throwing...
Lakers' Dwight Howard is perhaps the most dominant defensive center in the NBA. This season he is averaging 2.6 blocks, and is pretty much an intimidating force in the paint for any would-be opponent daring enough to go the the rim for the basket.
But last night, Bobcats' Gerald Henderson scoffed at Howard's reputation and proceeded to annihilate Howard in the fourth...
Gerald Henderson looks like a SlamBall player as he throws it down on Dwight Howard and the Lakers:
Bobcats swingman Gerald Henderson joined in the holiday dunking season with an absurd jam over the Lakeshow’s Dwight Howard. The title of the post is a little more accurate as it wasn’t really a slam dunk, but more of a slam throw. You know you’ve done something special when the opponent’s bench jumps outta their seats.
We know one thing that Henderson won’t have on...
The Bobcats Gerald Henderson threw down this beastly slam on Dwight Howard Tuesday night, posterizing the Lakers big man in absurd fashion. Even Blake Griffin is impressed by that power throw down. Seriously, the dunk was so good it even made one guy on the Lakers bench jump up in celebration.

The Lakers now have three wins in a row beating the Charlotte bobcats 101-100. Break out the confetti – and they did Tuesday night at Staples but they do that for every home win. Pau Gasol was back in the line up and was one rebound shy of a double-double with ten points and 9 [...]

The Magic, of all teams, kicked off a debate that has been plaguing the NBA since Gregg Popovich started fouling Shaquille O'Neal, or maybe the strategy even dates back to Wilt Chamberlain and his famous clanking ability from the so-called charity stripe.
From a strategy perspective, it makes sense. If Howard is shooting only 49.2 percent from the foul line, the risk that he...
AP Photo/Chris CarlsonThe Lakers were able to defeat the Charlotte Bobcats and extend their winning streak to 3 games. With Pau back in the lineup the team was still not able to successfully run their half-court offense when both Pau and Dwight were in the game together. They got away with doing that tonight, but if the Lakers really want to win a championship they will need to find...
