The four time NBA Most Valuable Player has been nearly unstoppable against the Bobcats this season, averaging 37 points per game in seven meetings about 10 points above his season average.
The Bobcats said they won't go that quietly.
Henderson added he views it as "very important" to not get swept after a year in which the Bobcats went 43 39 in the regular season a 22 game improvement over the previous year under former coach Mike Dunlap.
Now James is looking forward to returning home to Miami to rest his legs.

Last year, the Heat wasted no time sweeping the Milwaukee Bucks.
Kevin Love phone rang in July and LeBron James asked the All Star forward if he wanted to play with him in Cleveland.
"In the third quarter, he was outstanding, covering a lot of ground, pick and rolls, and really putting a lot more pressure on Jefferson's catches," Spoelstra said. "He either couldn't catch it in the post, or he really had to work for it and catch it a little bit further out on the court where we could pack our defense and bring some more help."

Chris Douglas Roberts provided a spark off the bench with 17 points, but Gary Neal brought in for his outside shooting and playoff experience has struggled with his 3 point shot throughout the postseason.

(AP) Coach Steve Clifford said if the Charlotte Bobcats hope to avoid a first round sweep by the Miami Heat and earn their first postseason win in franchise history, they're going to need someone other than Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker to come through on offense.
In James' first two seasons, the Heat bolted to a 3 0 lead in the opening round series, lost Game 4 and then closed out the series in Game 5 at home.
he scored 15 points in the first quarter Saturday night and hounded Walker en route to a 98 85 victory in Game 3.
