After etching himself into the rotation by providing endless energy, Lakers forward Xavier Henry showed that same enthusiasm after practice on Christmas Eve by visiting the East Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club.
At the event, Henry talked with the kids, played knockout and provided a signed basketball. The knockout winner won four tickets to the Lakers’ Christmas Day game against the Miami Heat at Staples Center, while Henry also sponsored a four-person family with gifts.
