Xavier Henry On Being Drafted By Grizzlies: 'I Can Make An Impact On Both Sides Of The Ball

Former Jayhawks guard Xavier Henry talked moments after being drafted....

On whether his dad is still the best athlete in the family:

Not anymore. He could've been before but I think I caught up to him.

(His dad is a former NBA player)

On his brother C.J.'s influence:

He had a huge influecne because he wnet through everything beore I did. About 5 years earlier. He jumped straight form high school to the real world. He's got a lot of things he's taught me. I went just as fast, with one year in college, and he's helped me out a lot with it.

On his impact next year;

I think I can make a big impact on both sides of the ball, not just scoring. It's just part of my game and I just play with 100% effort at all times and that's what I plan to bring to Memphis.
