Agreed with you there.

What I thought popped out the most to me was his jab step and blow by at the 7:50 mark in that Nike Hoops Summit video. I think he could have exploded quicker, but I think his handles were holding him back there. If he develops better handles and jumper his triple threat is going to be deadly.

He's going to have to improve his skills 10 fold. I think hes more likely to be a JR Smith, Josh Smith, or Rudy Gay type than Kobe/Lebron/Tmac.

So he'll be like Kobe/LeBron/T-Mac, just not as good?

He's saying he'll probably be closer in talent to josh smith or rudy gay than lebron, kobe etc.

But weren't Josh Smith, Rudy Gay, JR Smith etc. supposed to be the next Kobe/LeBron/T-Mac types? That would mean that Wiggins will be a lesser version of those stars, just like the Smiths and Gay are currently.

He is going to be the real deal. He won't end up in Toronto though, Stern wont rig things in favor of Canada. Just for NY (ewing) cleveland (LBK) and CHI (rose)

If he was willing to "rig it" for Cleveland, than he would be willing to rig for anyone else, this would include Toronto.

Sadly, new team status overrides home town team. So the Seattle rig is already in place for next season. This seasons already gone to Orlando. :roll: :lol:

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.
real gm logic;
"kobe scored 48 points tonight"
"^small sample size"

It's insulting to teenage LeBron to even say this guys name in the same sentence. He's a good prospect but LeBron was a different breed of CANT MISS #1 pick.

I'm a big fan of Wiggins, but this is 100% correct. We knew about LeBron when he was 15.

The last 3 guys that have had huge hype, Oden, Rubio and LeBron. I knew about all of them before they were 16 - that counts for hype in my eyes.

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.

He's going to be a very unique player. He may pave the way for the next generation.

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.
