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...

When I'm watching player mixes of high school prospects I often like to nitpick certain plays that stand out to me. That spin move at the 0:10 mark was such a play. I've always valued body control more than any other physical trait in a basketball athlete, and the display of dexterity there just blew my mind. Made a complete 180 and never looked like he was going to lose balance.

Combination of size, strength(wiry), explosiveness, agility, body control. He really reminds me of Wade the way he moves on the floor. He is bigger though so that will only help him with everything he does.

People always want to see the next Jordan/Kobe(including me). Wiggins is the closest thing to that in a long time.

Sorry I guess I wasn't clear, I understood talent as in basketball, skill-wise talent - and in that respect while i'm not dissing him at all, he didn't show me a once in a generation type talent yet.

I do agree about his physical and athletic ability being spectacular, and that he's still young and could very well develop into one having all the tools.

But I can't say all those crazy stuff about him without knowing his work ethic, and willingness to be a superstar - the thing that turned those great athletes into fantastic players - or without him showing a more improved skillset like Lebron did for example in high-school.

I think the world class athleticism is the obvious selling point, but in terms of his skillset I think what is most promising is that he doesn't have a glaring weakness and he has shown a massive improvement over just the last 2 years. He has NBA range on his shot and despite some less than ideal mechanics can knock it down with regularity. He doesn't have a yo-yo handle, but he has developed some really nice moves to get space for his shot. Defensively he doesn't always put max effort, but when he is locked in he can shut down any of his peers.

A lot of scouts think he could contribute to an NBA team right now, so it's scary to think what he could do 2 years down the road when he gets to the NBA.
