Although he’s unlikely to be familiar with the work of Emmanual Adebayor, this provocative celebration by Marshall Henderson after he threw two game winning baskets for Ole Miss vs. Auburn last week, put us in mind of the joyful scenes at the Etihad when the then City striker scored, then ran the length of the pitch to celebrate with his ex-club’s fans.

Having watched both clips several times though, we note a curious inconsistency between the response of the English security detail and the lone guy in the white shirt featured in the above gif.

He’s taken some stick for Ohio State’s 73-68 defeat to Duke Blue Devils this week, but honestly?

No. So give the kid a break, would you?

He might be 6’10, 240lbs, a national Player of the Year finalist and No.5 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, but according to his godmother, Thomas Robinson is still incapable of dressing himself.

Bless. He’s not going to argue, is he?
