There’s a very good chance that Andrew Wiggins will be the top overall selection in the NBA Draft next month, and this is something he very well knows heading in. Not even skipping the recent NBA Combine in Chicago will hurt that, and in an appearance on NBA Sirius Radio on Tuesday, with the lottery just a few hours away, Wiggins clarified just how much it’ll mean to him to be the first player taken.

He consistently got better as the season moved along, leading many to believe that he’s the player with the most potential out of this entire draft group this year.
