Great defensive potential due to athleticism.

"Lebron has always been my favorite player, the one i try to model my game after" - Andrew Wiggins.


Andrew Wiggins reminds exactly of that... a player who tries to model Lebrons game... tries.... he sure does have the athleticism down tho, but he is more of a two-foot leaper than Lebron, kindof like Gerald Green...

Can't pick one player, but he'll be damn fun to watch.

TMac gets thrown around most often (although there's the issue of ball distribution... Wiggins hasn't shown a natural talent for passing so far, only a willingness, which puts him more in the Durant category as a passer). I've also heard Dominique and Dr. J, though I think he'll end up with a better jumper than those two, but a less aggressive scoring mentality.

Gerald Green

I don't get the tmac comparison... T Mac jumper was solid, handle was tight, and he was a good passer... I haven't seen wiggins consistently do any of that...

Plus t Mac was smooth... Wiggins is very stiff

I don't think 'stiff' is a word you want to use to refer to Andrew Wiggins.

I keep hearing he doesn't have a "motor". He won't be great without a motor. I've seen this kid play a few times and from what I've seen this description is spot on.

The one thing that stands out about Wiggins though is the quickness on his 2nd and third jumps. He's a very quick and explosive leaper. This alone won't make him great at the NBA level.

Reminds me of Gerald Green.

Michael Jordan, in Darius Miles' body, with Duncan's composure, and Russell's intangibles. Except better than that.

Maybe people are overrating him too much because of his athleticism. We have to wait he play college ball first to evaluate him better.
Not that I don't agree with you (because I do!), but what's his motivation to actually play hard at college and bust his ass? Everytime he busts his ass, it's a risk to his future if he gets injured. He has adidas knocking on his door already to make him ultra rich. He's already the #1 pick for next year, this is not some Felipe Lopez type shit (Lopez woulda been a #1 pick had he skipped college, but he went to St Johns like an idiot and ruined his stock). He has already been hailed as the next heir.

I saw him in highlights, maybe a Wade with a 3 point shot?

I kinda see him as a bigger, more explosive version of Paul George.
