Could Andrew Wiggins be The no.1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft? I say yes. The 6 ft. 8 200 lb small forward was ranked the best player in the nation coming out of high school. Wiggins had colleges and oversees teams drooling over him because of all his accolades not to mention he played for the Canadian National Team. Out of the hundreds of colleges, Wiggins became more interested in North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas and Florida State. He chose Kansas. I feel Wiggins could have made the jump straight to the pros had the rule still been legal, I’m more excited to see him progress in college under head coach Bill Self and potentially win a National Championship. The stud from Ontario, Canada certainly has the size to be a great NBA player but, seems to lack a consistent jumpshot which will be needed in today’s NBA. Besides that I feel Wiggins could and should be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Kansas would love to have the best player in college basketball stay for all four years, I’m sure he’ll be greatly appreciated with a deep March madness run, but we all know the goal is always higher than a long run. I expect Wiggins to lead in all award races and become a solid threat to every college basketball team he comes in contact with.
