When you discuss the best point guards to come out of the city of Chicago you would be remiss not to mention Cordell Henry. A 5″10 point guard that was part of the 1998 Whitney Young State Championship team which included future NBA player Quentin Richardson. Cordell was a highly recruited prospect for many colleges but ultimately settled on nearby Marquette University where he is number nine on the schools all-time list with assists and in his senior year played alongside another future NBA player, Dwyane Wade. Broadcaster Dick Vitale once remarked that Cordell “had ice in his veins” because of his ability to make clutch shots.
