Forgive me if this has been posted, but just caught wind of AW new senior season mixtape. Truly mind-blowing, top-tier athleticism.
I have no words. Maybe you guys do. discuss
that 360 behind the back dunk at around 1:57 was just insane! aw!!!!!
Jeez. The elevation that he gets every single time is ridiculous. Seems as if his forehead is consistently above the rim...
Can he do anything with his left hand?
he's gonna have to get a helmet to protect his head against the rim
Gotta love what you see from Wiggins. He had a nice crossover from left to right which is a good sign because many players his age only have handles from right to left. His array of spin moves looks like they will be tough to stop. The play where he tipped it up and dunked it back in on his second jump may be the most impressive on here. You aren't supposed to be able to explode off the ground like this guy.
I don't think I have ever been as excited to watch a player who has yet to arrive in college. I am not a fan of any of the teams on his list but wouldn't mind seeing him at UNC. He would thrive in their uptempo offense and could play against Jabari at least twice.
I love his signature spin move. Looks like a difficult move to contain once he gets in the league.
It's going to be really fun watching him grow and mature, he looks better in every new video that surfaces on the web. I haven't been this excited about a highschool prospect since Durant and Oden.
This guy is the real deal
No matter where he lands for College, he will make the team an immediate conference/national contender. I believe that he should go to North Carolina. Marcus Paige is a great freshman point guard, Reggie Bullock and P.J. Hairston are great outside threats that can slash, and they have some good young bigs with length and height. Wiggins would fit right in with the up-tempo style of play and he is a much better version of McAdoo. No one in the ACC would be able to keep up with the Tar Heels with Wiggins on the squad.
His other top choices for schools are Kansas, Florida State, and Kentucky.
Considering how much talent is leaving Kansas, how little talent there is at Florida State, and the fact that Kentucky is already stacked with incoming freshman and returning players, I think that North Carolina is his best option to improve/shine/make a difference.
Oh you mean the 9-9 (in ACC) team that had one senior on its team and one healthy junior this year. The one that broke in seven newcomers including five freshmen this year. The one with three 7-footers returning including Mel Turpin's son. The one that will have Okaro White, Terrance Shannon, and Ian Miller (I think this site had him as a top 10 pick at one point) returning all of whom has Sweet 16 level experience. Or the one that will have Wiggins' best friend and #28 overall recruit next year Xavier Rathan-Mayes. I like our chances.
Even taking off my carolina blue shades, I think Wiggins would best fit at UNC.
i would love it if he just flipped the scrip on everyone and choose a mid major program with a strong schedule and win a title there. florida gulf coast? i know i got there fever right now and it wouldn't happen, but it would be something else to put a smaller program on the map right away. not necessarily that team, but you know, something around those lines.
He's restoring hope for us, I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee this. His handles are clearly become elite and he's a PTP.... Gets called out by SI and drops 53 the next day. Us Canadians are blessed to have a player of this caliber.
Bruh been drinking that Space Jam Secret Stuff lol
Don't think he's a good fit at UNC. If you know how Roy's offense runs, you'll agree. While FSU is better, still not an ideal situation imo. And then Kentucky already has so many players on the wing.
To be honest, Wiggins ideal location for next year really is the Bobcats or the Magic and it &$#%#&@! me off we have to wait for a talent like this.
I have no idea where he's going but I'll go out on a limb here and pick what seems like the least likely destination in Kentucky. The fact that there has been so much buzz lately about FSU and UNC and the fact that Wiggins has been showing a touch more love to those two schools on twitter just makes me think more and more that it's UK.
It's just a ruse imo and I think Calipari has perfected it. He lands these kids fairly early in the process (with the help of WWW) but tells them to play it out till the spring because not only would it stop the NCAA from sniffing around, but it also allows the kids to take all their official visits and have a good ass time with all of the attention.
So yeah I think he's going to UK even though I don't know how it's going to work.
in my humble opinion i believe he should go to kansas. i believe they have 2 underrated and great players coming in, in conner frankamp and wayne selden. plus they will have nadir tharpee. idk much else about who would be on that team. but just those 4 guys alone i feel would be a threat.
i really cant wait to see him, jabari and julius play next year. should be unbelievable. Wiggins is unreal. it looks too easy for him out there. does anybody know when he is expected to commit?
Can't wait to see him in college. Hopefully he's developed his jumper more since the last time I saw him. Also can't wait for Jabari Parker and Chris McCullough (in CMc's case, the year after).
First of all, let me start by saying by AW will probably go to UK. Just for the sheer fact that when it comes to top talent, no one is close to Calipari on the recruiting trail. However, having said that, I think that AW should heavily consider the Tarheels. If UNC returns everyone (Bullock, McAdoo, and Hairston), and adds Wiggins, that team is a lock for the Final Four, and I do believe Wiggins wants to compete for a national title in his one year in college (which would essentially knock out FSU, who even with Wiggins, couldn't sniff a Final Four).
With UK, I don't see Wiggins wanting to go play with 7-8 other 5* kids who all demand touches, however, as I said before, never count out Calipari for a top flight recruit. However, with an emerging star PG (Marcus Paige) and UNC's up-tempo, free-lance offense, I think Wiggins could really thrive. Plus, he is such a fierce competitor I think the idea of facing Jabari Parker head to head 2x (potentially 3x) a year, plus a match-up with UK on the schedule, it would give him a great chance to go head to head with the best and prove why he is #1. With no inside knowledge, AW seems like the type of kid that would rather beat the best than play with the best (the anti-Lebron).
I personally think it's going to come down to UNC and KU. But then again, that's just a guess, he's played his recruiting process very close to the chest.
Either way, no matter where he decides to matriculate at in the fall, I think we can all agree his potential is absolutely through the roof. I really think he will swiftly join the NBA's young elite (KD, Westbrook, D-Rose...etc) and be an all-star for years to come.
In my little ideal world, being from Charlotte and a UNC alumn, best case scenario is AW picks the heels, heels win the natty, AW gets drafted #1 to the Bobcats--who then change their name back to the Hornets and with Wiggins, MKG, Kemba, and the draft pick this year (Noel? Zeller?) leading the way, become a mainstay in the playoffs.
The more I watch from Wiggins, the more certain I get that there's almost no way a player of his caliber can struggle in college. Everyone will struggle against him instead.
Wow...he's faster and way more athletic, with better handles than jabari parker, and even more explosive than Aaron Gordon. Absolute freak of nature.
DAMN everybody is getting me hyped!!! when i woke up i was amped for the indiana/cuse game tonight and the rest of the sweet16 games...now im like F it bring on next year!!! lol
