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.

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.
