    Gerald Henderson's Wrist

    Did G hurt his wrist in the first half last night or was he anticipating a monster jam on Green and tape it up for protection?


    Is it just me or does G get up higher than any Duke player ever?

    Not sure on that. Gene Banks had some S-E-R-I-O-U-S hops and he was 6'7".

    It might be you. Try Robert Brickey in his prime.

    I think it would come down to G and Dahntay Jones (see- Jones jumping over a player for a dunk). Either way, that'd be a great dunk contest.

    Maggette had some serious springs, too.

    Corey Maggette had some ridiculous hops. Duke's had a few guys who could really get off the floor. Henderson's not shabby, but I wouldn't necessarily say he has the best hops.

    With Gerald, I think there's an effect at work that makes him seem like he's jumping even higher than he is. He's so incredibly smoothe that he rarely looks as if he's doing anything particularly fast or quickly, until he decides to jump, then all of a sudden he's three-and-a-half feet off the ground. Maggette was faster and maybe a little quicker, so maybe that's why it doesn't seem to some that he jumped higher than GH, but I think he did(does).

    I think yes. Surely the team measures verticals? (Anyone with a connection...)

    On TV, it looks as if Henderson's head is an inch or so from the rim on occasion. He's only 6'4". I don't recall any of the other guys mentioned getting up like that.

    But, this game, he had some Monster leaps in traffic and at risk on defense, among some real trees. After a while, and I'm not kidding, he seemed even to look taller than usual standing among them. They had to think so.

    Are you thinking with the new ACL, you can challenge? I hope the repair job went well. You okay?

    What's rehab look like?

    Back to the original question in this thread - does anybody know what was up with the wrist? He definitely had tape on it, and it appeared a few times as if he was rubbing/holding his wrist. Not trying to take too big of a leap (sorry, also trying to follow the other theme), but I figure someone on here knows something.
