"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...
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.
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.
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?
