From WindyCitizen.com, “I imagine teams will also see some value in this year's draft compared to the previous season because there's a bona-fide franchise changer in Kentucky's point guard John Wall, who is Derrick Rose on Kevin Johnson-pills. Seriously, while Rose is unmatched at his position athletically in the NBA, Wall is longer, taller, quicker and even more explosive.”
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
