He ain't going to the NBA. Neither will the D-League. That will leave Europe, and those leagues will tire of his act quickly and send him home. Or just not pay him.
The former star at L.D. Bell has now had his latest suspension defined by Ole Miss - three games, for a violation of team rules. CBSSports.com reported he failed a drug test. Who saw this coming?
He will miss the first two conference games of the season.
Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy has his job in Oxford becuase he gambled and took Henderson when every place else said no way because of his laundry list of off-the-court problems. As much as he needs Henderson, he had to suspend Henderson.
The problem is for Kennedy it won't matter. Henderson is going to do whatever he wants, even if it kills his shot at a pro basketball career. I have no idea what else Henderson plans to do other than ball.
NBA teams can deal with guys who flunk drug tests. They are not going to deal with guys who flunk drug tests and can't play.
He is only 6-foot-2. His ball handling is not great. His defense is OK. He can't penetrate off the dribble. His shot selection leaves little to be desired. But he can score ... in college. His game is not going to translate up.
His best shot is to shut his mouth, play, score and hope he can land a gig overseas. It's clear by now no one has been able to reach Henderson, or cared to; he either won't listen, or it's easier to enable him and let him score from outside.
Nothing this guy does fits the confines of a team, from his shot selection to violating team rules.
He is fun to watch, and his antics drive interest in the college game, even if they are stupid. Flipping off an entire crowd is bush league. Yes, he is a punk but he's not my problem so ... who cares? He sells tickets ... in college.
This is all about to end for Henderson, so he best live it up and squeeze this for a little bit longer. The fun's about to end.Twitter @MacEngelProf
