Our captains (after being named captain) seem to have a shorter shelf-life than the average player.
But as far as Matty goes, it makes total sense that a guy who's been here for parts of all but one season gets a captainship. He's at every community service event, is beloved by the ticket-buying fanbase and everyone in the locker room knows he's not going to cause trouble. And really, except for the tenure Hendo has the same attributes, as well as actually being able to play defense (probably why Dunlap picked him) and occasionally put the ball in the basket. And if MKG, Taylor, Kemba, Bismack and Mullens see Hendo and Carroll as the guys to talk to about stuff, I feel a lot better about the advice they're getting than were our captain DJ Augustin or Jack or whomever.
