While players like Dante Exum, Marcus Smart, and Doug McDermott showed up and improved their draft stock at this year’s NBA Draft Combine, the consensus Top 3 players, Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Joel Embiid, decided to stay home rather than participate.
Depending on Tuesday’s Draft Lottery results, it’s a given that one of these Top 3 elite prospects will become the favorite to be the #1 overall pick in June’s 2014 NBA Draft.
While Embiid and Parker stayed in the shadows this past week, the legend of Wiggins continued to grow, simply by tweeting out one simple picture of the still only 18 year old man-child flaunting a reported 44 inch vertical from a private workout at P3 Sports.
For some reason I just can’t stop staring at the photo of Wiggins in flight, reminding many of the legendary Michael Jordan, for his insane ability to seemingly walk on air.
Is there any doubt Wiggins will be the #1 selection in the 2014 NBA Draft?…
