Which players does Wiggins remind you of?
 
I can't really pin him down in terms of other players style, he does has a little bit of Tmac and Len Bias but for the most part he's unique. What u guys think?

I read somewhere in the last week that his college coaches said that he is not even the best player of his team on the practices.

Maybe people are overrating him too much because of his athleticism. We have to wait he play college ball first to evaluate him better.

i thought the quote was that he blended in too much during practices and coaches had to call him out on coasting, maybe i misread the article

Horace Grant said Bias was a better athlete than Jordan. He definitely was bigger and stronger than Jordan. He had hook shots, triple pumps and some range. He didn't have Jordan's stylistic look but probably would have if he got older.

I think Wiggins would be most like Bias. Uncultivated style but capable of it all.

they have said he isnt even the best freshman, wayne selden has reportedly been better

people need to give the guy a chance to get acclimated. people calling him preseason player of the year, or first team all america are nuts, imo

We'll have to wait and see until he actually plays.

The kid has everything to prove, just no urgency to prove it right now.

Sorry but I don't like the Len Bias one. If anything I would say Jabari Parker is more a Bias replica

I think the young TMac comp, before the jumper really refined, is pretty damn close. Right down to the tendency to meld in and defer a bit too much, or seem like there's a lack of focus.

He's got similar potential for defensive mayhem too that pops out from time to time.
