Hopefully the raptors are one of them. And hopefully we finally get that Lebron to Cleveland or Rose to Chicago lotto wins.

His nickname should be freight train. Never seen a high school kid look so hungry. He looks like a pissed off version of a young LeBron when he plays. There is some nastiness to his game. He can also fly through the air two handed. This kid is going to embarrass some NBA veterans immediately.

I'd say his floor is probably Rudy Gay. Wiggins has stupid good athleticism.

Jabari Parker, barring injuries, will be better than Wiggins.

Stud athlete and I can't wait to see him in D1 along with Jabari and a few other HS prospects. We'll know then if he's the real deal or not. Personally, I don't see it but we'll see.

What? He dominates with his left or right hand already. This kid will be the a stud immediately. Parker=Carmelo, Wiggins=LeBron if were talking potential.

I'm more concerned with Parker's athleticism translating to elite leagues than I am with any facet of Wiggins' game.

Well, this is part of the reason why I said I don't see it.

Because fans like you throw him into the Lebron category. Failing to realize just how absurdly god like Lebron was in High School. Lebron did things in School most players in the league could only dream of.

What does Wiggins do so differently that can't be found around the NBA to draw such comparisons? Let alone a comparison to Lebron?

After seeing him recently I'd also be concerned for his long-term weight and conditioning issues. He is half Tongan.

If Wiggins was from the States he'd be getting much more exposure. This kid is everything Parker is with freakish athleticism. He is, in my opinion, the closest player Lebron's size with his same physical gifts. And he's nasty.

I don't care. I'll stick by my opinion, this kid will be huge when he hits the NBA.
