Both of these players are very good but I like Turner better. Looking at the mock draft I see Henry and Turner at 6 and 7. Do you guys think this can be like another Roy/Foye thing in the draft?
NO RANDY FOYE WAS A UNDERSIZED 2 AT VILLANOVA KYLE LOWRY WAS THE MAIN BALL HANDLER
LAST YEAR EVAN
Led Big Ten competitors in scoring (17.3 ppg.), was third in def. rebs. (178), mpg. (36.42) and rebs. (7.1 rpg.), No. 4 in steals (58), No. 8 in assists (131), No. 9 in FG pct. (193-384, .503) and No. 10 in FT pct. (175-222, .788)
THIS YEAR HES EVEN BETTER HE
HES TIED FOR SECOND IN TEAM BLOCKS
LEADS IN ASSIT...ALSO TURNOVERS.....
BUT LEADS IN REBOUNDS ALSO
HENRY HAS A PRO BODY THINK OF CARMELLO,LEBRON,RON ARTEST,HOWARD IN TIME HE WILL BE A PROBLEM JUSS OVERPOWERING PPL NOT TO MENTION HE CAN SCORE..TURNER REMINDS ME OF GRANGER A LITTE BIT HE DOES EVERYTHING WELL, STAYED IN COLLEGE IMPROVED HIS GAME AND ITS PAYING OFF
I CANT JUDGE HENRY HAVENT SEEN MUCH...
with love for Henry and knowing what he is doing in team like Kansas being freshman and over 2yrs younger than, I need to say Xavier Henry. I as for now i just can't, unless Turner avg less than 10rpg and 5apg i would say he is safer pick and better in upcoming years...but still i think Xavier's upside is bigger
Tough question, this is one to look at in about a month when we get a better view of Henry's game.
Honestly, I like Turner and Henry both. I feel both are the top players at thier positions.
I would take Turner if I was a team like Minnesota
I would take Henry if I was a team like Detriot
....Turner is producing more. However, this is because Ohio State doesn't have nearly as many offensive weapons as Kansas does, meaning Turner has to carry more of the load. Henry is on a team that features Sharron Collins and Cole Aldrich, so he doesn't have to do as much. Right now, I'd want Turner simply based on production and overall versatility (way above average rebounder and passer for a guy that's 6'7"). However, (and as much as I hate this word) Henry might have the greater pro potential and "upside" based on sheer athleticism.
