Davis has become underrated. His only flaw is health

Reeeally going out on a limb saying that Giannis will surpass Wiggins.

If Anthony Davis can become a defensive anchor, then he is the best of the group. Until then, I'd probably like Giannis over that group. I'm still interested in the kind of player Towns becomes.

I agree with Wiggins, AD, and Embiid. Towns and Giannis are both the future of the league though, but I think Giannis could be one of the best players in the league in a few years (at the time, not ever).

At a certain point players are only so good. But Giannas if he reaches his potential could be a superstar.

I'd take him before Davis and Wiggins that's for sure.

I think Davis is close to his peak unless he can improve defensively. I think Giannis is a much more transcendent sort of talent.

As for Wiggins it isn't even close. I've never been high on him at all after seeing his first season.

Yeah, Wiggins is a real odd man out in this whole thing.


Your trolling us :lol:. I'm very intrigued by what Thibs can do w Wiggs.


Nah, if I was trolling it would be far more obvious and hopefully funny to some people. I don't think Wiggins is on the level of the rest of the guys mentioned. He puts up numbers, but he's not a guy I'd necessarily want as a franchise pillar. He's more of a high-end complementary piece than foundational imo.

I'll probably catch a lot of flack for this next statement, but honestly, he kind of reminds me of Rudy Gay type of player. Nice player, glad he's on your team, but I also don't think he's a make or break franchise talent. Those other guys mentioned are.

That's a pretty big flaw for a franchise pillar bigman.

Now your def trolling :lol: :lol: :lol: I already knew your opinion. :lol:

I obviously disagree wholeheartedly. He's certainly already passed Gay.

I call a spade a spade and most of the time w Minnesota sports I will rip on the picks/players. I'm bullish on Wiggins though. Ive said it before and I will say it again:

The Thibs hiring will help Andrew Wiggins more than any other TWolf.

Drew is one of the best nba athletes I've ever seen. People questioned his shooting form. He improved it. People questioned his handle. He improved it. wolves were the #1 defense for a stretch last year against the top teams and Wiggins had a large part in that. Thibs forced him to be our primary playmaker. He struggled early but he showed improvement by the end of the season. Its all coming together for him.

Will be? He already is

Anthony Davis is incredibly overhyped. All he does is fill the stat sheet and he certainly doesn't scare me down low

He's already better than those guys, has a higher ceiling than all those guys. I totally agree 100% with this. The only guys in the league that I don't see Giannis having a higher ceiling over them is Lebron and KD. I wouldn't be shocked in 5 years Giannis is the best player in the world. Hell I'm not going to lie, I'm expecting it and would be more shocked if he wasn't than if he is.

In my opinion a healthy Embiid is, literally and figuratively, head and shoulders above Giannis.

I'd rather have Embiid.

31 games against 318 and I think Embiid already makes more impact in the minutes he gets. Antetokoumnpo is the safer bet obviously.

This guy is getting absurdly overrated.

Better than Anthony Davis?

AD is already a top 10 player who has put up historic numbers. What has Giannis done to prove he could be better than him?

He's the best of the group right now.

Towns is younger though, and has a serious combination of already being good and upside to improve. IMO Giannis projects a little better but it's close. Embiid obviously have big health issues.

Giannis is already at All NBA level, they need Parker or someone else to become at least a perennial All Star if not another All NBA player to be contenders. I would give up Parker and multiple firsts if it brought back more of a sure thing player.

I'm a huge AD fan but he hasn't been a massive difference maker since entering the league (granted New Orleans have had a lukewarm roster to support). Combine that with health concerns and I'm taking Giannis over AD right now, let alone down the road
