Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel isn’t exactly a bad boy, but he knows what it’s like to have the spotlight on him at all times. So as Ole Miss star basketball player Marshall Henderson continues to get grief from everyone from opposing fans to LeBron James for his on-court antics, Manziel took to Twitter to offer up some words of encouragement.

Henderson is known for shooting as much as he wants, mocking opponents and their fans, and then celebrating at the local bar or a house party afterward. Similarly, Manziel, has been photographed at the Super Bowl, the casino, in courtside seats at the Miami Heat game and in Cabo with multiple girls. The only difference between the two is that Manziel’s popularity skyrocketed when he won the Heisman Trophy. Henderson is working toward his national championship hardware this month.
It’s unclear whether Manziel and Henderson actually know each other, but the two players have becomes such public figures that putting them in the same room with girls, booze, friends and cameras just might break the Internet.
