The real debate should be Hezonja vs Wiggins. :wink:


I was thinking Mario might be my 2nd favorite of the 3, but behind Jabari :wink:

If I was a bad NBA team, I'd start prepping for a 2014 tank right now. Class looks insane

The reality is that if Wiggins had been available he would have went #1 in 2012 over Davis, #1 in 2013 and #1 in2014 draft. Right now he is a better prospect than Durant remember Odom was drafted #1 and was consensus #!. He is the best prospect since LBJ.

We're definitely going to hear about the Wiggins vs. Parker argument for many years to come...

Hype overdrive. Can we watch these guys extensively before we reach to such massive conclusions? People were saying the same about Barnes in 2010, and they ended up getting burned for it.

Yeah, as much as I think highly of Wiggins let's not jump into conclusions yet. Barnes was supposed to be a number one pick and so was Drummond, but they both fell to seventh and ninth in the same draft. I think Wiggins will live up to the hype but let's just wait until he plays a game in college.

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

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

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Wiggins put up a Drummond type season and then started to light it up at the tourney or during pre season. Players like these need special coaches

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.

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.

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.
