MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - After struggling in basketball mediocrity for the last couple of years, both on the college and professional levels, Memphis is suddenly back in the Spotlight.
Not just locally, but nationally as well.
The newest edition of SLAM Magazine features Ja Morant on the cover.
Morant, of course, is reportedly the target of the Memphis Grizzlies for the number two pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.
But, that’s not all.
Former East High center James Wiseman, the number one college basketball recruit in the nation and now a Memphis Tiger, is also featured in the mag.
It’s complete with a full-page spread and a slate of pictures at East High.
Wiseman was also featured on a video with SLAM last month, after receiving his Gatorade National Player of the Year Award.
Between Morant, Wiseman and the hype around Memphis Tigers basketball, Hoop City is definitely on top right now!
