Those guys are also capable of dropping 20 point games if and when they're given the opportunity. Martin being the least among them. Being talented doesn't mean you're going to do something every single night. I never claimed that, you're the only one drawing outlandish conclusions based on something I'm saying.
I never claimed these were great players or great scorers. They're talented players who can get hot when called upon. Like J.R. Smith or Nick Young. Would you call either of those guys great? No, but they're very talented. They're probably a step above the names I mentioned, but that doesn't mean the guys I mentioned (really that you mentioned) AREN'T talented. In fact, I'd take any of those guys on this team in a heart beat.
And Henderson played less than 20 minutes, so big surprise that he didn't put up huge numbers.
