We Don't Like SEC Basketball

By Jason Priestas on January 27, 2013 at 11:28p

But we like this guy.

Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson hit two game-winning free throws at Auburn and then did what any self-respecting hoopster would do: marched over to the Auburn student section and asked them how they liked their apples.

There are so many things to marvel at in this GIF. Thankfully, the crew at CBS Sports is there to highlight them:

  • The crew of double-middle finger guys. They're forever best friends.
  • The guy who rips his hat off. He was so heated that he just couldn't take it anymore.
  • Now we get to the sleepers: to kick things off, check out my man next to Auburn pajamas girl. He's got the creepy sideways grin, like he digs Marshall Henderson's attitude, but can't have his friends find out.
  • Speaking of Auburn pajamas girl, she looks out of place. And is also terrified by the flying object to her left.
  • What is that flying object? No one really knows. Could be a Fathead, could be a cardboard cutout, could be an umbrella. But the blonde girl reacts like it's a head. A real one.
  • White hat fellow. Waving his hands, yelling "come on come on come on" to Henderson. His flailing hands and sideways shuffle steals the show for a bit.
  • The guy right in the middle who emphatically sticks a middle finger at Henderson -- and then tears it right back down. Everything he did was 100 percent.

Bravo, Marshall Henderson, bravo.

i like the old guy in the zip up sweater with courtside seats who casually stands up and calls the ole miss player a jackass

Killer nuts's picture

Agreed. When he stands it puts an end to the whole charade

This was great! The analysis was classic.

This is fantastic...the fringe SEC bball teams are truly horrendous.

My favorite part of this is the black man in the white shirt on the right.
Has a smile on the whole time.  Had me laughing

Haha, missed that until you said it. I was mesmerized by all the other losers. That guy is awesome, though.

The black dude is lovin' it! How about the senile old guy sitting at the bottom right. He's waiting on some crackers and cheese or something....."what"s going on with these whipper snappers"! 

Thank you sir! May I have another?

Agreed.  The event security guard steals the show once you know he's there.  He has that quite amusement of a man who knows he could whoop a$$ if he wanted but at this time is just enjoying the show.

It's mesmerizing. He's very lucky someone didn't dot his eye. It's always good to see good sportsmanship.

The supporting characters really put this GIF over the top.  In particular: the black event usher who is dying inside of laughter and the old Auburn radio guy who stands up at the end.  He -- and he alone -- is the shield of peace separating that Ole Miss basketball player from heel-stomping everyone in Auburn's student section.  

Stand proud, old Auburn radio guy. Stand proud.

I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

Watch the girl behind the pajama girl, Harbaugh-esque And is that just Justin Bieber coming from the left with the double birds?

guy at the scorer's desk with the sweater vest and glasses, reminds me of a Who

CaliforniaBuckeyeGirl's picture

Yes!  And the Who isl loving it, too, laughing and clapping.  If I could ive you a thumbs up for pointing this out, I would. :-)

But not this kind of Who.

THIS is my favorite kind of Who. I'm hoping to catch them here next week. *fingers crossed*

The guy in the white polo has a "I'll snap your spine if you'll just step closer" smile on his face. I'd take a $100 on Henderson against anyone in the crowd except that dude. You always have to watch out for the quiet ones.

Awesome. If you have a few minutes, I'd recommend checking out a breakdown and (fictional but hilarious) backstory of the characters in this .gif from the 2010 ALCS.

Is that Andy Samberg? Because he obviously wants to know what happened...

I think it's funny that anyone could get that upset about Auburn basketball.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Older white dude to the right of the white dude that stands up..."oh, what's all this commotion in here...ah, where am I?"

I think the dude had a Paterno moment and probably pooped his pants.

The blonde girl who shows up on the very left when the camera pans out.  While everyone around her is turning to watch, she is staring straight ahead like, "I want no part of this tomfoolery."
Also, the brunette towards the top right as it pans out who unleashes a clear "F_CK YOU!" At the end it looks like she's trying to get down there to go at him.

I just read a little about Marshall Henderson a couple days ago. For those that don't know, Henderson has an interesting story. He started his college play as a freshman @ Utah and averaged like 10 a game or so. Then he transferred to Texas Tech to play for Pat Knight. Knight was fired and Billy Gillispie was hired. Meanwhile, Henderson was arrested on felony drug charges that were eventaully dropped. Instead of playing for Tech, he opted to go to a JUCO, where he was POY and won a national title. After that he ended up @ Ole Miss this year, where he's either leading or near the top in SEC in scoring, 3 pointers, and free throw percentage, and receiving the most bird flips from a crowd.
Henderson has been doing these antics with opposing crowds pretty much every game Ole Miss has played this year. He's the kind of player that if he's on your team, you love him. But if you're playing against him, you love to hate him. He wears his emotions on his sleeve to say the least. It's certainly entertaining to say the least.

If Henderson played for a traditional power, he'd be the biggest thing in college basketball--Jimmer Fredette heroics with a polarizing persona. CBS has got to be praying for a long Ole Miss run in March.

Kind of reminds me of the guy who bounced around and ended up at Fresno State. Can't think of his name...there was a 30 for 30 about him...he's from Boston...made it to the NBA but washed out mostly because of drugs.
Chris Herren, that's who I was trying to think of.

Win with class.....something the SEC never does; except maybe Alabama; what a joke.

I gotta say, I love when players taunt opposing student sections. Now before I hear "Well you should play the game with class" hear me out. First and foremost-its a game. Its played. However anyone chooses to play it (assuming they aren't trying to injure someone intentionally) shouldn't be an issue. More than that, however-student sections are designed and encouraged to berate and annoy opposing players and whether it is intended or not-student sections (especially in hoops when they are even closer to the action) will irritate even the most mature college athletes. When said opponent can ice\win a game after 40 minutes of getting yelled at by college kids, I'm all for those kids getting a little of the business. I know, someone will say "If he walked off of the court, he would have said more to those kids"....but that isn't true-look how upset those kids got. That is my favorite part of this whole thing.

I like the older gent with the beard sitting at the table....enjoying the hell out of this show.

Long live the southend.

I especially liked the kid in the polo, center screen, with the fro, giving the double bird while yelling "boo, boo" over and over again.  I don't know that I have ever seen anyone throw up the double deuces like that -- pointing them directly at the intended receiver.

Best thing about that dude is the 2 claps he gives between his double birds. He's clearly excited

Stupid for doing that, but still pretty funny!

This kid's a live wire (and hasn't seen a shot he didnt like) and thats good, I like to see some give and take with the fans; With that being said SEC Basketball sucks lol! Go Bucks.....

buckeyedude's picture

Check out the brunette, 3rd row up, with the blue shirt, after that thing flies by...priceless. That is a goofy looking reaction.

I love the old guy standing up and saying "You're a jackass."  That and the guy in the striped shirt behind him repeatedly yelling "Fuck you!" and ripping his hat off.
