If you don't already have an opinion on Marshall Henderson, the intensely polarizing guard from Ole Miss, you're about to. After nearly shooting his team out of the tournament and then shooting down Wisconsin, Henderson has found himself right in the middle of the spotlight ... which is pretty much what he's wanted all along.

The CBS crew, including Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, said after Ole Miss' upset win that they'd love to play with Henderson. Nice endorsement, that, but it was a tweet during the game itself that set Henderson off:

James was, of course, referring to the fact that Henderson was apparently permitted to shoot any time he was within two time zones of the goal. (He missed 12 of his first 13 shots, including going 0 for 6 from three-point range, before finding his stroke to finish with 19 points.) And how did Henderson react when he heard the world's greatest basketball player had shown him love? With characteristic restraint, of course:

Gotta admit, he's right. And the ALL CAPS style of most of Henderson's tweets is just perfect.

Much more to come from this kid, folks. Buckle up.
