Henson's big time ballers
Each weekday, ESPN RISE brings you five vital stats from athletes across the country.
Sickles (Tampa, Fla.) power forward John Henson is the No. 3 senior in the ESPNU 100 and is headed North Carolina for his college play. A fan of the NBA, here are his five favorite professional players.
1. Tracy McGrady
"I remember him from the first NBA game I went to when he played for Orlando and he had something like 30 points. That's always been ingrained in my mind, and he's been my favorite player ever since."
2. Kevin Garnett
"I like his intensity, his fire and his passion for the game. That's one thing I want to take to my game."
3. Kobe Bryant
"I like his all-around game, and the smoothness of his game and how nice it is. He's the greatest player on Earth. He can do everything."
4. LeBron James
"His power and quickness for his size is something you won't find for long, long time."
5. Dwight Howard
"He is just a beast. That's all I can say about him."
