Jerome McKinley "Gerald" Henderson, Sr. (born January 16, 1956) is a retired American basketball player. He was a combo guard who had a 13-year career in the NBA from 1979 until 1992. He played for the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons, and Houston Rockets. Henderson was born in Richmond, Virginia and attended Virginia Commonwealth University.

He was most famous for his steal off a James Worthy pass to score a game-tying layup in game two of the 1984 NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the L.A. Lakers. The Celtics eventually prevailed in overtime. Henderson then told the reporters, "For a minute I could hear Johnny Most going, 'Henderson steals the ball!'"

As of 2006, he and his wife run a real estate business in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Their son, Gerald Henderson, Jr. was selected by the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball Association in the 2009 NBA Draft.
