This is just the day and age we live in where scouts/fans pick apart a teenagers game. There was nothing Wiggins could have done at Kansas to increase his stock. These kids are under a microscope & people love to tear them down for whatever reason.

I think Wiggins made a huge mistake going to Kansas in terms of how people perceive him as a prospect and other young up and coming kids should take note. If you're a one and done player then going to one the big programs is just a waste of time.

Kevin Durant should be the blueprint for highly touted prospects.
1. Go to a small(ish), but respectable school where you will the focal point of the offence even as a freshman.
2. Put up 25 PPG
3. Get even more hyped than you were coming out of high school.

Wiggins should have just gone Florida State for one year. Half the things people knock him for wouldn't be brought up if he went to Florida St. and dropped over 20 PPG.

Durant and Wiggins played it the same conference... Durant was just the far better player. Even a Kansas fan will tell you that.

T-Mac showed great vision and had better handles than Wiggins as a high schooler, so I would think if T-Mac came in the one and done era, he would probably be valued more.

I think Wiggins would go over Derrick Rose though.

This.

Durant could create his own shot in college way easier then Wiggins could. I never really thought watching Wiggins that he could consistently get a good shot like Durant. This was when Durant had pretty weak handles as well. Obviously he struggled in some games against NBA level talent(Brandon Rush did a pretty good job holding Durant down).
