Neither. OJ Mayo was the next Kobe right? 1 year of college changed the shit outta that. Muhammad was the next big thing right? 1 year of college changed the shit outta that.

Let's just wait and see.

Peak Jordan.

And I'm completely serious.

Elite court vision, elite slasher+shooter, great passer, high morale leader, can jump out of the gym, quick lateral movement, high BB iq.

This kid has all the skills to be the actual next Jordan.

Kobe lacked MJs insane athleticism, leadership and overall offensive game.

LeBron lacks MJs drive to win, his scoring ability, and high skill.

Wiggins has it all.

If he turns out amazing, I'm going to feel a bit sad we wasted the Air Canada moniker on Raptors-era VC.

Not quite.

Durants game is based on elite shooting and the ability to get to the line, average defense+passing.

Peak T-Mac would be a nice floor for Wiggins absolute prime, I'm talking 03 Mac+better defense and attitude.

Upon seeing this high school mixtape of wiggins...

I'm seeing a sort of Lebron/ Durant mix in terms of size, agility and movement.

Doesn't have Lebron's passing, nor does he have Durant's shooting prowess... however it looks like he could be an outstanding slasher/ finisher on Lebron's level.

Then again, that's hard to estimate when he's taller than every other player on the court...

I would say a cross between Derrick Rose and Dominique Wilkins. He's got that Nique frame and athleticism with a hint of Derrick Rose ball handling.

No, I think he's more of a cross between Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Jordan.

Not gonna lie, first time seeing a highlight of this kid.

Doesn't have Lebron's fast break speed, but much better handles, and iso game. Elite ability to get to the rim, and crazy hops. Also, much better body coordination.

I take that back. The kid's gonna be special.

I've heard everything from Rudy Gay to Jordan. No clue, but hopefully he's legit. The league's always better when there are more marquee players.
