About Joshua Henriquez

Joshua Henriquez is a 17 year old basketball player from the Bronx. He has been playing since 3 years old and started his official journey in the 7th grade in the school he plays for now called Bronx Studios School For Writers and Artist as the 1-3. He is an undersized player standing at 5'8. He can shoot the three or take it up to the rim. Has defense and has enough hops to take the rebound of the towering players. He is the true definition of an athetic player and heart over hieght.

How Does He Train ?

Joshua tells us " Well I train every time I can. I usually hit about 300 shots a practice. I like to start with my lay ups and go on with shooting drills. I like to start of close to the rim and move away from the rim. I also have a strict rule that if I miss out of ten shots or lay up I run for every miss. I shouldn't miss open opportunities." He also explains to us that every thing he does is faster then game speed that way when he's in the actual game everything is slowed down.

The Mindset

Joshua says his mindset on the court and off the court aren't very different. He like to think he the best in everything he does. From the simplest to the hardest. He's not cocky or anything he's just confident. He tells us "On the court my mindset is to kill anything in my way I'm not the tallest player so I have to get aggressive. I get in my mind and I just attack everything and to do anything for my team to win. Off the court my mindset is humble and to help younger kids be good at basketball I try to help anyone as i can". This is truly a sign of matury.

The Future ?

Joshua explains that he see's himself in the NBA. Proving doubters wrong. I asked him how does he plan to make it with knowing he has no official recognition. Josh tells me " I have some look outs from a couple Divison 1-3 colleges and i know that nobody doesn't know me like they know Lamelo or any other ranked player of class of 2019 that is ranked but I'm better than all of them just stay in your seat and watch me take off.
