Dime: What was your favorite memory from the whole process?
JH: I would say the friendships I made and meeting all the guys who are going through the process with you. Myself, Terrence Jones, Perry Jones, and Jared Sullinger we all had a lot of workouts together, and got to know each other really well. So we are good friends now just based on going through this whole thing with each other.
Dime: What is the funniest story you have from the process?
JH: Probably when me and Perry (Jones) had to go through customs in Canada when we went to work out for the Raptors so we got on line and they looked at our passports and had us fill out the papers, everything was fine. Then Terrence (Jones) comes up and the lady takes him a whole different way so he had to go through the back and a completely different process. They had to recheck him and look and double-check his passport so it was really funny to see him go through that, and it took him 15 minutes more to get downstairs.
Dime: What was your least favorite part of the whole process?
JH: Probably traveling. Man, the traveling is crazy. All the cities you go to and getting your plane tickets sorted out then going to the hotel and getting your room keys. It’s tough to do all that.
Dime: If you could change anything about the way you went about the last two months, is there anything you would change?
JH: Probably just have all the teams come to me (laughs). They’ve got enough money to do it, so that would be real nice.
Dime: What’s the best advice or best lesson you got from someone during this process?
JH: Probably one of the best lessons was that all of the guys in this draft are very talented. And to this point that talent may have gotten them by to this level because they were just more talented than anyone else. Now it’s a whole new game, you can be an okay player in the NBA on talent alone, but if you want to be great you’ve got to go get it. You’ve got work hard every day and you have to commit yourself to it.
Dime: If you had to give advice to someone who goes through this process next year, what would you say to them?
JH: I would say get a frequent flyer number would be the first thing. Also, just to be ready for the traveling and the effect it has on your body. It can be very tiring and it’s definitely a grind so you have to be ready for that.
Who do you think will take Henson in the draft tomorrow night?
