Memphis:Stephenson, Wall & Henry

May 5, 2008

A lot of talk these days about Memphis going after a trio of 2009 superstars: Lance Stephenson, Xavier Henry and John Wall. I have speculated before that I think Wall is going to Memphis, and I really wouldn’t be surprised to see Stephenson pull a one-and-done in the city that birthed Elvis either. The big thing here is, Memphis has become the premier way station for hyped players to do their one year tour, especially if those players are ONLY going to college to position themselves for the NBA. It seems like USC is trying to do that as well, but Memphis success in the NCAA tournament has made them much more of a heavyweight.
