Who would you take?

Say all these guys are the same age and came out at the same time without any college games being played. Starting a franchise from scratch, who do you go with?

Shabazz Muhammad

Jabari Parker

Andrew Wiggins

Andrew Wiggins hands down for

Andrew Wiggins hands down for me.

Muhammad is great, he's going to dominate next season and should be the #1 pick. He's a hard worker, a dynamic scorer and should be an elite SG for years to come.

Parker is also special. He's versatile and brings a high level of skill, selflessness and poise. He's an excellent all around player and I love his ability to pass. I saw him being an All Star to possible superstar.

But in the end I still think Wiggins will be better then both. He's an insane athlete who really can do anything now. He's a better shooter then Muhammad now imo and has the potential to be an All World defender. Not to mention his skill level is rapidly improving to the point where he could pass Parker in another year or two (I know they're the same age). Maybe I'm just really high on Wiggins but I see him being a Top3-5 player in the NBA in his prime.

No doibt Andrew Wiggins. This

No doibt Andrew Wiggins. This guy has out of this world athletic ability to go along with his smooth jumper, ferocious defense, and tight handle on the ball. Jabari parkers lack of athleticism limits his potential but he will be the better scorer out of the both of them, shabazz is a man child and athletic freak that can score but still needs work on his jumper, needs to learn to dribble with hos off hand more. Andrew Wiggins will be franchise changing player

I'd go with Wiggins. This kid is going to be special. Not to take anything away from the other two, but Wiggins has the highest ceiling in my opinion.

Wiggins

His game is so well-rounded, i can't see any weaknesses being exposed at the next level. He's more special than Bazz and Jabari, and that's saying something.

Definitely Wiggins. Best

Definitely Wiggins. Best athlete and of all of them w/ a budding skill set. He has franchise player written all over him.

Shabazz is overrated IMO. He's a power wing who lacks a handle and has no floor game. Doesn't really do much outside of scoring. I see Jerry Stackhouse 2.0.

Parker is also overrated IMO. I just don't see all the skills people are raving about, and he's lacks the NBA-ready athleticism of the other two prospects.

At one point Stack averaged

At one point Stack averaged 29.8 ppg and had a 4 year peak averaging roughly 23 4 and 5. He wasn't a superstar but he was pretty damn good for a few years.

Not saying Stack was chopped

Not saying Stack was chopped liver, but he couldn't lead a team anywhere. I think Shabazz plays the same way and has similar physical tools.

I'm just saying that you

I'm just saying that you aren't as low on him as you think if he's 2.0 of a good player.

All 3 are franchise changing

All 3 are franchise changing talents.

I'd have to go with Wiggins though.

during those years Jerry

During those years Jerry stackhouse scored a ton he was a shot chucker he didn't see a shot he didn't like, his field goal % hovered around 40-42% throughout that stretch and had a career field goal % around 40%. Bazz is more like tyreke evens with a better jumpshot they're both power guards at 6'6 220 and can get to the rack easily, bass doesn't have handles like tyreke but his jumper is more advanced

Allen Iverson and Tracy

Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady shot about the same % in there primes as Stackhouse did. They were still Top 5 players.

Yes but tmac and Iverson were

Yes but tmac and Iverson were phenomenal defenders both were extremely good passers for shooting guards and tmac could rebound well and defend on the post about as good as any two guard in the league could Stackhouse was one dimensional player which is why his career fizzed out pretty quickly to a role player Tracy mcgrady had his shooting percentages dip after he lost his athleticism to injuries.
