Milwaukee Bucks: 20 Greatest Individual Performances In Franchise History

4 of 21

18. John Henson – @ Orlando Magic, April 10, 2013

To this day there are major pockets of the Bucks fanbase who call for versatile, young big man John Henson to be given greater opportunities to show what he can do, and it’s games like this one that can often be accredited as the reason why that is.

Henson is a long and athletic defender, but it’s underrating him by simply categorizing his length in that manner. The former UNC Tar Heel is more than capable of being a dominant figure on both ends of the court, it’s just a matter of him being consistent enough to impose his will.

Henson gave a spectacular demonstration of what could still be to come from him towards the end of his rookie season, in the sort of performance that perhaps prompted the team to abandon their eighth seeded squad in favor of rebuilding.

The Bucks would eventually fall to the Magic in overtime in a game that they could have done with winning as they jostled for playoff position, but it was the play of Henson that was really the games most significant storyline.

The North Carolina native posted 17 points, 25 rebounds, seven blocks and three assists during his time on the court as Henson made a statement performance. If only the Bucks could get some more of that this season.
