A really, really big home.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in writing about IU alum it’s that Indiana steals your heart and never gives it back.

Alan Henderson was born in West Virginia but he graduated from a high school just north of Indy. He was recruited by Bob Knight and played under him at IU from 1991-95.

In 1995, he was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks and played there for the majority of his professional career. Bouncing between teams for the prior three years, Henderson finished his season with the Philadelphia 76ers and retired in 2007.

His plans to dig his roots back into Indiana soil were taken to court in late 2012.

Henderson had blue prints drawn up for a mansion he wants to build in a neighborhood on the northern side of Indianapolis. His future neighbors are not pleased. They said the elaborate house, planned to take up 2 lots, will distract from the consistency and beauty of the historical neighborhood.

The courts overruled the neighbors’ complaints and gave Henderson the go ahead to begin construction.

Alan Henderson was only out of state for about 12 years and by the looks of it he’s already back for the long run. After all, there truly is no place like home.
