Xavier Henry, Memphis Grizzlies

On Carl Henry being the best athlete in the family:

“Not any more. He could have been before but I think I caught up to him.”

On his Brother C.J. Henry’s influence being drafted by the New York Yankees out of high school:

“He had a huge influence, because he went through everything about five years before I did. He jumped right from high school into the real world. He’s got a lot of things that he taught me, that he showed me. I’ve been moving just as fast. I went from one year in college. It all translates; all the real world stuff and my brother helped me a lot with it.”

On the impact he can make at Memphis:

“I think I can make a big impact on both sides of the ball, not just scoring. That’s a very aggressive part of my game and I just try to play the game with 100 percent effort all the time and that is what I will bring to Memphis.”
