Do you read what you write? You're starting to sound like you only like him because he's Canadian.


Every NBA scout would say the same he has punked every player his age and players older yes I'm happy he is Canadian guess you are a jealous American who only think BB players should come from there. Likely you drive a 70's Dodge Charger.

Wiggins has already been deemed "The next big thing". I like Parkers game more then Wiggins though

Jabari Parker is about to win his 4th state championship. If I want a winner, I'll choose him.

Dr Positivity wrote:Like I said I'm not an expert on Wiggins, but is he considered a special talent in areas other than athleticism/physical tools? Like is he ahead of the curve off the dribble or as a shooter/shot creator? Or is the reason he's considered a higher upside prospect the assumption that he's going to add those things to his athletic profile?

Jabari has elite size, shooting/shot creating and feel for the game for a wing it feels like. He might not have an elite 1st step but he sounds like the full package

Absolutely,Wiggins still has to improve his game.you see,his shooting is not good enough and on the off. side he still much too rely on his right hand.If you saw the game he against Randle,you should find out that Wiggins couldnt guard Randle,he should put on some muscles.BTW,his coach said that Wiggins didnt has a good habbit .Anyway,I take Wiggins.He has more upsides.Of course,Jabari maybe a superstar in NBA
and Wiggins just a highflyer...but I hope he will success.

No... just no


Yes and yes. Wiggins is a better prospect than Durant was in HS. Durant wasn't even the top HS player in his class


So? If LBJ were in this class, Wiggins wouldn't be the top player in his class. That wouldn't make him automatically a worse prospect than every guy who was first in his own class.

That's like saying Durant wasn't a better draft prospect than Bargnani because he went second.

I dont see Jabari as a potential once in a decade type talent like Wiggins could be..Jabari will have osme of the same problems at the college and pro level that Harrison Barnes will face being a little stiff and slow and not a freakish athlete..

Parker seems like a crafty smart player but not a guy you are gonna build around in the pros

Along with running the floor, his 2nd and 3rd leaps are just phenomenal.

The height he gets on that last dunk is incredible. 34 points and 9 boards against Kentucky's JV team.

Dont sleep on Jabari though. Perfect Grant Hill comparison and you always treasure that kind of talent in any draft. He is good at everything, all around game and high IQ on and off the court. Both of these talents would be solid picks. My opinion is that Wiggins goes hard like he wants it more (to dominate) whereas Parker is more causal in his approach. That kind of drive in Wiggins makes him more attractive as a prospect to me.

I wouldnt say its drive i just think WiggIns has more upside because of his physical ablity then Parker does..

Parker looks to be a very solid player but he doesnt have the wow once in a decade type talent Wiggins posseses..

I love Wiggins but those highlights are against fat ass midget kids, with that said, I see Durant talent in this kid for sure....

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

I don't see either being a bad choice. I thnk wiggins has a better chance of being the franchise guy or superstar but they both should be good wiggins I don't know what his height and length are but he doesn't look like a 6-8 to 6-10 small forward maybe I am wrong but I could see him even becoming a two guard while I thnk Parker is more of set as a three.

Wiggins doesn't play like Kobe... Kobe also isn't a freakish as Wiggins in terms of length, athletism, explosiveness combo.
If anything he is a Tracy Mcgrady / Pippen combo...
The way he is very wiry, long, explosive and coordinated...
