Aminu benched for Henry tonight


Per Jen Hale:

#Hornets coach Monty Williams sits Aminu in favor of Xavier Henry, saying Aminu needs better performance & more intensity. Needed change.

Monty considered lineup changes recently and not just at small forward: "It's not like we have a stellar record where you want to stand pat"

One specific Monty gave for Henry as starting SF was his potential to improve weakside defense. Monty: "That's one thing we've lacked."

Good, Aminu is awful looks totally lost on the court.
Henry isn't any good either but can at least put the ball on the floor and get to the rim in a pinch.

He deserves as much of a chance as Aminu does to flame out. They were in the same draft class.

re: Aminu benched for Henry tonight


he started off with so much promise the first few games. to be fair, that was when he had AD on the court.

i just can't wait to get the real starting 5 out there

Ouch Aminu

You got benched for one of the worst players in the NBA.

Hopefully that'll wake him up and he'll start playing like he did at the beginning of the season.

I just hope this year doesn't turn out like last where we never get out TRUE starting 5 out there. Unless of course that leads us to another AD type player, which A. there isn't one, and B. it's way too early to rev up the tank.

Yeah. There\'s too much season left. I really want to see our true 5. They\'d be fricking competitive no doubt

Good. X finally looked like he had some aggressive nature in the Lakers game. I think that's what is ultimately holding him back.
