Anthony Davis wanted to play for Memphis
"He just gave me hope," Davis said of Rose. "I actually wanted to go to Memphis, but then Coach [John Calipari] got up out of there, and I think [Derrick Rose] is actually going to be a lot of guys' idols who came up under him just because of what he was able to do.

It is better than the guy that wanted to play for Kentucky since Rose went there lol

Seems like it was mainly about Cal and not so much Memphis.

I will say this...

I was skeptical if Cal could pull the same classes in Memphis as he does at UK.

The more info that comes out it appears he could have.

I agree. I'm sure you remember, looking back further if the current NBA draft rules had been around way back when, we could have had Amar'e Stoudamire and Kendrick Perkins. Would have been nice to see them play at least a year in Memphis. Perkins probably could have benefited from a year or two in college allowing him to earn even more in the NBA than he did.

That info was available in 2009. I guessed you are the only person that missed it.

Had Cal stayed at Memphis he would have more Natty's than he will ever win at Kensucky.

His loss.

Provided he didn't get completely shut down by the NCAA, which will never happen while he's at UK.

I can't remember but who were the contributing returning players on that team? I believe Mack and Sallie (shooters) were but I'm not sure. Outside shooting doomed them in the end. Maybe Taggart stays

He presents his opinions as facts...

When you can find the link of when Eric Bledsoe signed with Memphis let me know...

Secondly...A single class doesn't = 10 years of classes. 1 class may have been enough to convince you but others need more data and won't jump on a hot take (see your Brady White posts)

If Calipari had stayed at Memphis Kyrie Irving would have come. I seem to remember Irving being quoted on that somewhere.

.

Yes, we all imagined Rose and Tyreke and Cal would have all of a sudden stopped recruiting. That makes perfect sense. About as much sense as saying Henderson is good but not great because he doesn't make plays, he weaves around defenders and out runs them...and really everything dumb you post.

What was the quote?, something like if you want to be dumb, go ahead, but I'm not going to be dumb with you.

Kemp, Mack, Sallie, Taggart. Sallie and Kemp would've provided the outside shooting that team needed to win it all.
