The Marshall Henderson Experience...

When Utah bid a not so fond farewell to Marshall Henderson our enduring memory of him was taking a small swipe at Jackson Emery and Emery flopping like he’d been shot by a sniper. Fast forward to about 1 minute or so to see it in the clip below.

Marshall left Utah because rules conflicted with his individualism.  He went to Texas Tech, beat Felony Drug Charges, became JC player of the year and found his way to Ole Miss.

Where he did this…

and this…

And has had photos taken of him doing interesting things in both Outkick The Coverage and Busted Coverage.  And now to top it off he’s the subject of a story on Deadspin.

Now I am wildly conflicted about Marshall, because he is a total punk, but he is also wildly interesting and somehow he wins games.  And at Utah right now, either winning games or having something interesting to talk about would be a huge step from where we are.

I’m curious, how would Utah fans have felt about bringing Marshall back on the good chance there would have been an arrest, but he’d have been dropping threes when it mattered.  I can man up and say I’m at least conflicted about the answer.

    I remember when he was at Utah it drove me crazy how much he shoots and how low his shooting % was. Looks like the same player, just less skinny.

    Now his on court antics? I don’t necessarily like them. But I do feel like I’d be more like that security guard at auburn, just smiling at how wild he is. I could have out up with that. Oh and he should have clocked emery for realz if he was going to get kicked out of the game and miss another game for it.

    Regarding then off court antics….no room for that in my opinion. Although I’m down with second chances.

    Overall, I’m glad he’s not a ute. But I agree with you that at least it would be interesting.

      I look at guys like Marshall and think, man if they only had just a little discipline and work ethic. Like Nick Jacobsen’s heart in Marshall’s body, Marshall’s number might be retired.
