NBA: Putnam City alum Xavier Henry posterizes former Kansas teammate Jeff Withey

by Erik Horne Published: November 13, 2013

Since his sterling 22-point debut for the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 29, former Putnam City standout Xavier Henry has been relatively quiet.

Until Tuesday.

Against the New Orleans Pelicans, the 6-foot-6 Henry got his man in the air with a pump fake at the top of the 3-point arc and made a beeline for the basket. Only former Kansas teammate Jeff Withey stood in between Henry and the rim.

This carnage ensued:

A ill-advised move by Withey and a poster jam for Henry.
