The new “Black Mamba”?

When the Lakers aquired free agent Xavier Henry they were hoping to get contributions from him off the bench. His main role was going to be giving the starters a much needed rest, and if he so happened to add a few buckets then it was more than what the Lakers were hoping for. Instead xavier Henry quickly emerged as the go to scorer for the lakers repalcing laker legend Kobe Bryant. Though Kobe is still out, The Lakers have managed to keep a winning record this season. Xavier is playing the shooting guard, which is Kobe’s spot… Once Kobe comes back from injury, one can only wonder if Henry would just move up to the Sf position, or just provide a much needed scoring burst from the bench, whenever Kobe needs a rest.
