he really has to work on his jumpshot if he wants to make something of himself in the nba. i was watching him in a high school game on ESPN last week. he took a lot of big threes, missed them all. he has a good inside drive and is very athletic. but i could still him turning out to just be a nobody. high school games are not a good indicator of how a player will translate into the nba.

Because really NO ONE is....not even in the past (yes even Jordan) as a prospect. Lebron was the most complete prospect the league has ever seen from overall skill to physical gifts. There simply isn't another prospect that has rivaled James as a prospect. To me Wiggins' potential is what McGrady could have been
Sabonis, Arvydas. Although that feels like ancient history.
If you want to try to measure the elements of basketball that are supposedly unmeasurable, spend a game just watching Marc Gasol. @MikePradaSBN

For those of you who don't know, his father was a very good defender back in the 80s...unfortunately, drugs ruined his NBA career along with teammate Lewis Lloyd , but he resumed a successful career in Greece.
