Nearly a month ago I had the opportunity to travel with the Sixers on a 3-game road swing that made stops in Minneapolis, Memphis and Houston. While in Memphis, I took advantage of a little early morning down-time to walk the famous Beale St. (Above are the photos a captured).

It was incredible to walk down the Home of the Blues and to think that the likes of Muddy Waters, Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Robert Johnson and so many more legendary bluesmen once stood in the same places I was standing. If you have a love for the Delta Blues then I would recommend making a stop.
