Gerald Henderson a ‘Leader’ for Bobcats?
That’s the word power forward Josh McRoberts used to describe the Charlotte Bobcats’ showing in a 105-84 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. The man had a point.
The shooting, by any description, was bad. The defense was a major step back from Friday’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. But it was the focus and intensity – particularly from the starters in the first and third periods – that made this a stinker.
The Pelicans punked the Bobcats and no one among the core players fought back.
“You just need to be ready. There are no numbers, no film” to learn from, said shooting guard Gerald Henderson. “You’ve got to know what you’re doing and come with the right mindset to the game.
“I take it a lot on myself,” Henderson continued. “I’m a leader on this team. I’ve got to make it happen on both ends.”
