I don't think his style is same as Lebron's.
Lebron was a ball handler, passer etc.

But Wiggins definitely has some aggression towards the rim... Enough that you know he will likely be a 20ppg at the very least.

That and he will most likely win a dunk contest if he choose to enter it... His vertical is insane and explosive as.

I've made this comment on the draft board about him and I stand by it..
Wiggins is likely a 23ppg 7rpg 3apg type with breath taking dunks...

Unless he improves his ball handling I fail to see him as Pippen as NBA draft.net has him pegged.

T-Mac is a good comparison minus that T-Mac can pass and play make..

I think somewhere a combo of T-Mac, Gay, LeBron, Pippen...

His built is Pippen like, muscular, wiry and long...
Pippen always had that look when he dribbled and attacked the basket... Like someone with their arms too long for they body... And it was.. 6'8, 7'3 wingspan..

Its funny people now think Lebron was so skilled in high school when the majority of posters on this forum thought Lebron would be a bust after his rookie season (common complaints were he had no defense, no jump shot, was just an athlete, etc.). It was me and other Cavs fans defending him (anyone remember the long lost LBJ4MVP with 10k posts) but I guess hindsight is 20/20.

As for Wiggins he does look like a young T-Mac in the making.

If he inherits the half scoring ability of his father will be one of the best players in the league after 4-5 seasons...

wiggins - an uneasy feeling; a sense of foreboding badness. Originally coined by Joss Whedon, on his cult TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


"Detroit gives me the wiggins"

Would love me some Wiggins in Detroit to pair up with Dre

A Dre/Moose/Drew front court would give the rest of the NBA the wiggins. :P


I'm not sure Why Piston fans think they will suck enough to get Wiggins in 2014...
You guys will improve dramatically as Drummond, Monroe become better and attract FA... And improve chemistry... 40 win team in 2013-2014...

never said I thought we would get him but would not complain if we did. I mainly wanted to use the word 'wiggins'. ;)

His level of fluidity, body control, quickness, bounce, vertical, and explosion is already better than most NBA players. He has potential to be a superstar player both on offense and defense.

Does anyone know if he'll be in the Hoops Summit again this year?

Also, is he eligible for the McD's game?

I've seen him play at Peach Jam. Kid is the best prospect I have seen since Lebron.


He's not anywhere near as skilled as Durant was in high school, and he's probably not as physically gifted. He's more explosive vertically and stronger, but Durant's height and length, and just as importantly his fluidity, quickness and coordination given his height and length was alien like, even at Montrose.

He is not Lebron, Not Tmack (although this most closely resembles his game) and yes Jabari might be better than him as far as polish and overall skill. But nobody nobody has more potential than Wiggins. Whats most intriguing about him is that he is not playing to feed his family or to get recognized or any of that he just has a natural genetic love for competition. He is hungry and likely will stay hungry. He loves to play the game. He might never develop into a superstar or he might. Doesnt matter because his competitive drive will make him sought after and he will crack a rotation.

Raptors could go 0-82 and trade first round picks from the teams with the next 5 worst record and they still wouldnt get the first pick. No way is Stern stashing the next big thing in Canada.

Did you forget he's Canadian and from Toronto? That would be a huge marketable move for the NBA by Stern compared to having him go to a city like Charlotte or Phoenix.

Just look at what VC did for basketball for Canada.
