Can this whole Xavier Henry saga be done now, please? First of all, I’m not really sure why this subject was even topical to begin with. If Carl Henry gives normal, trained-by-a-publicist responses to the Kansas City Star, instead of throwing the KU team under a “my son should be front and center” bus, there would be no legs for the story to walk with. Instead, the fallout of the KC Star interview required two revisions and led to unnecessary revelations about Xavier Henry perhaps leaving Kansas for John Calipari and Kentucky. But at the end of the day, and after reading what Evan Daniels and Jeff Goodman tweeted, it’s hard not to get the impression this was much ado about nothing — or an unnecessary grab for additional spotlight.

Look, I know it’s summer and people tend to forget about college basketball, or at least put it on the back burner; however, manufacturing stories for the sake of keeping your son’s name topical is not the way to go about fostering good conversation… Or to win over the fans.
