If you haven’t heard enough about this guy, you will just need to do internet research for now. Marshall Henderson and his Ole Miss Rebels fell in the last seconds to Lasalle in the NCAA Tournament. The #13 Explorers move on to the Sweet 16 to face #9 seed Wichita State. The Shockers ousted #1 seed Gonzaga on their way to the Sweet 16. Unfortunately, the bigger story is always about Marshall Henderson. Why? Because he’s the villain, and he loves it. After Lasalle had beat the buzzer and sealed the Rebels fate, Henderson turns around to the Kansas City crowd and threw up both middle fingers. The reason why? Henderson said someone yelled something about his sister being a ***** and then something about cocaine. He explained he is always going to react, especially after a loss and in a moment like that. This instance is the tipping point for me, and thank goodness he’s ‘getting tired of not getting paid for this”. I’ve seen his play, and he has a lot of ability as a basketball player. The problem is all the extra drama Henderson needs to put the spotlight on himself. Popping the jersey at Auburn fans, doing the Gator chop, hitting up a bar after a win, and his unrestricted Twitter antics are enough. In a way, I was okay with these antics. When I saw young children at the SEC Tournament copying his “land-shark” motion and his tongue wagging, I was immediately alarmed and in disgust. We cannot have children imitate, duplicate, or emulate a guy like Marshall Henderson. Now, for him to throw up his middle fingers because someone yelled at him? Does he really think he’s going to go far in the NBA if someone yells at him? Give me a break. I’m done talking about this guy, and I’m glad he’s finally out of the NCAA Tournament and off of my television. I don’t care if he lives his life, going to the bar after a win, and doing his land-shark faces in the mirror. All that’s his business, and I could care less. Normally, this is the point where I wish someone the best in their endeavors. While I don’t wish harm upon Henderson, I hope he uses his basketball abilities more than his antics to make the headlines. Some Lasalle fans took exception to Henderson’s middle fingers and made some edits to his Wikipedia page:
