    NoProps,

    Are you the same guy that gave me shit for saying that the Landry contract was a terrible idea? Are you the same guy that called Barkley an idiot when we said we'd finish 5th in the atlantic?

    Why quote a reply with a smug comment intended only to insult me? Especially after you were way off in our previous debates.

    Excuse me for not reading about a high school player that we have next to no chance of landing. If you're following the AAU scene this closely, I think you'd know enough ball to understand how bad the Fields signing was, or that we were doomed to the cellar again. If you've got a well constructed argument, I'll happily read it and reply. If you just want to take a shot at me, don't bother.

    Also its way too early to tell if the Fields signing was bad. Considering he was playing with a fucked up nerve in his shooting arm all year.

    People need to realize that the upcoming draft is going to be probably amazing and it's not just because of Wiggins. There's a TON of potential star players. That PG Smart that was supposed to come out this year was viewed as a top 3 pick and if the majority of dudes come out next yeah that are anticipated to, he could easily fall out of the lottery altogether. It's that deep.

    Plus looking at mock drafts is more fun when you have your pick :-P

    Another one of these threads?

    Think about it people before you put up one of these threads: even if you send everyone out and tank and even if you are the worst in the league you still only have a 25% chance of picking #1.

    Not to mention what happens if he does not perform like expected. Barnes was projected as a #1 pick for his junior and senior years in high school. He was also the first freshman to be named to the preseason All-American team. How did that hype pan out?
    I support this response!

    Typical Wiggins fashion...making a decision without the bright lights.

    Lately I've been thinking ..

    Tim Lewieke keeps saying he's about winning championships ..

    Does our roster have the potential to win championships .. ?
    Maybe.

    Would you guys be okay with him tanking next season on pursuit for Wiggins?

    He's gonna be a star .. A LEBRON-JAMES star.

    He might be the only way.
    Am I missing something? Why do we need to tank to get him? Let's just hire him now as our next GM.

    If we can't get him as a player, then NO ONE CAN.

    Win.

    BREAKING: Andrew Wiggins, No. 1 player in the class of 2013, announces his commitment to Kansas. Kansas has the No. 2 class in the country.

    Well I think this was a good choice for him, glad he didn't pick Kentucky personally because of the competition he will have to face now rather than just coast Miami style. Put in the work young fella.
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    Really glad he didn't pick Kentucky. Kansas has the chance to go very far as well, with their recruiting class this year. Wiggins and Wayne Selden will be a crazy 1-2 punch.

    Yeah, Kansas is a good choice. Glad he didn't just go to Kentucky or UNC.

    I wonder if having his brother Nick in nearby Wichita was a factor in Wiggins choice?

    He could be Kansas’ most highly-regarded Canadian import since James Naismith.

    Maybe...I think honestly he didn't want to go to the super popular programs at Kentucky or UNC. Even though Kansas is a top quality program, they tend to not quite get attention like those schools, or Duke. They also have somehow not managed to produce a lot of great players (in the NBA). They consistently put out guys who go on to have decent careers, but very few stars...Wilt...Paul Pierce...that's pretty much it. Wiggins could help their program if he's the real deal, and help them attract elite prospects. Similarly, he'll have a chance to leave his imprint on the Jayhawks in a way that just wouldn't be the same at the other big schools, and probably strengthen his legacy (again, if he's the real deal).

    Clyde Lovellette scored over 11 thousand points in the NBA. Danny Manning is worth mentioning as well as Jo Jo White.

    Kansas made the most sense if you think about it.

    Kentucky was way too crowded, FSU didn't offer enough support, and North Carolina is a conference rival of his dad's alma mater. Plus Kansas is close to Wichita where his brother is. Kansas offered the most playing time (not that a player of his caliber would have to fight for) and it's a balanced team.
