Hey La Salle Fans, Get to Know the Kid You're Going to Hate: Ole Miss' Marshall Henderson

Hey La Salle Fans, Get to Know the Kid You're Going to Hate: Ole Miss' Marshall Henderson

He exhibits the on-court demeanor of a borderline sociopath, shoots with no regard for efficiency, openly shit talks opposing players and coaches, and looks like Sid from Toy Story.

He's Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson and he meets La Salle on Sunday.

If you're unfamiliar with his body of work — SEC basketball doesn't get a ton of play in Philadelphia — Henderson leads the 12-seed Rebels with 20 points per game. That's the least entertaining thing about him. Let's dive right in.

Here he is (via probasketballtalk) taunting and getting flipped off by angry Auburn fans (with a full breakdown of the gif here):



Here he is (via gifulmation) doing the Gator Chomp during the second half of the SEC title game against Florida:

Here he is trash talking a fake Twitter account allegedly belonging to Kentucky's Ryan Harrow (bear in mind this is not Harrow's actual account, although Henderson assumed it was):


Here are his postgame remarks from after the aforementioned SEC title game, when he was a bit hung up on his status as an all-conference second-teamer:


Here he is getting chided by LeBron James for going 6-for-21 from the field and 3-for-12 in Ole Miss' upset of fifth-seeded Wisconsin on Friday:

Here he is (via TheBigLead) celebrating his upset win over 5-seed Wisconsin on Friday (that's yesterday) at a McFadden's in Kansas City:


And here's La Salle's D.J. Peterson, already mocking Henderson, after the Explorers knocked off Kansas State on Friday (photo credit USA Today Images):


If you dislike fun, you will hate Marshall Henderson.

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Vincent Trocheck scored with just under 5 seconds remaining to lift the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

Jonathan Marchessault also scored and James Reimer stopped 26 shots to help the Panthers complete a 5-0 road trip -- their first perfect trip of at least that many games in franchise history.

Reimer has won five straight decisions and has not lost in regulation since Jan. 7 against Boston, going 6-0-1 since.

The Panthers moved into a tie with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Bruins.

Kyle Brodziak, playing for the second time after missing 10 games due to a broken foot, scored for the Blues and Jake Allen finished with 31 saves. St. Louis lost its second straight since winning six in a row (see full recap).

Coyotes use three-goal 1st period to beat Ducks
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata capped Arizona's three-goal first period and the Coyotes held on for 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

Christian Dvorak and Jakob Chychrun also scored for Arizona, and starting goalie Mike Smith had 27 saves before leaving about 4 1/2 minutes into the third period after a collision in the net. Marek Langhamer helped kill a power play after being pressed into action for his NHL debut and stopped six of the seven shots he faced.

The Coyotes have won four of their last six.

Langhamer gave up Ryan Getzlaf's second goal of the night with 26.8 seconds to play, but thwarted two quality shots in the final seconds.

Jonathan Bernier gave up three goals on six shots in the first period for the Ducks. John Gibson came on to start the second and stopped all 14 shots he faced (see full recap).

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid trusts the Process, more so than anyone — the process of patience.

After sitting out two whole seasons because of foot injuries, Embiid learned the importance of patience the hard way.

Appearing on NBA TV's Open Court, Joel Embiid opened up about how he reaggravated the fracture in his foot that cost him the 2015-16 season.

"I didn't know how to deal with patience," Embiid said on the roundtable discussion. "I just wanted to do stuff, that's why I think I needed a second surgery, because after my first one, I just wanted to play basketball again. I just wanted to be on the court and I pushed through what I wasn't supposed to.

"At one point I thought about quitting. I just wanted to come back home and just forget everything."

Embiid goes on to discuss the Sixers' turnaround this season and his mindset during his recovery. Watch the full clip below. 

Embiid also said he models his game after Hakeem Olajuwon.
