    Wiggins is legit. Right now, Parker is the more polished player, but give Wiggins more experience and if he gains 20 pounds of muscle, he'll be virtually unstoppable. We have to remember, Wiggins reclassified to enter college early, so under normal circumstances this would be his senior year in high school. Parker might be the better rookie when he turns pro, but Wiggins may end up with the better pro career.

    Joel Embiid's draft stock is at an all time high. Both could go 1 and 2 as many boards project that Embiid could go first overall.

    In what many call the decisive game for Wiggins to finally start dominating.

    Wiggins is now showing us why he is #1 in the draft boards for months. Great game against Marcus Smart and his Oklahoma State Cowboys.

    Wiggins 1-6 in 34 minutes as Kansas got upset by Stanford. We should be talking NBA draft now.

    Cleveland got the first pick overall for the 2014 NBA Draft. There are now stories floating up that Cavs have set every intent on Wiggins.

    Looks like the Cavs are very happy with Wiggins at first pick overall. According to the news, Cavaliers are now trying to trade Kyrie Irving so they can quickly build around Wiggins.

    After last week's round of reports that Wiggins is being offered to the Timberwolves, there seems to be a breakthrough as news are now pouring in that Wiggins and the Cavs are close to a rookie contract.

    Wiggins' first pre-season game: 18 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks despite Minnesota losing.

    He is good in getting into the line and when he progresses further on his jumper and decision making, he'll be very hard to stop.

    It was a very good first game for him. He is already a high level defensive player. And on the offensive end, his jump shot has come a long ways from a couple of years ago. He is also an underrated offensive rebounder. However, the big area he needs to develop in to jump from a very good player to a great player will be whether he can consistently get into the lane, draw fouls, create shots for other players. He isn't able to do that consistently right now because of his questionable handle. Most of his drives are straight lines and he is able to elevate over a lot of players for short jumpers or floaters but he needs to be able to get all the way to the basket more frequently.

    He preceeded Nikola Mirotic and Nerlens Noel in voting.
