    This is one of THE most sensible posts in this entire topic. He was asked one casual question and he responded by naming his hometown team and the team he grew up cheering for. People are analyzing his response way too much. Wiggins's mindset now will be WAY different than his mindset when/if he does become a FA. What if the team he does get drafted too has a stellar supporting cast? What if they are a contender and Toronto isn't? (At the hypothetical time when he is a FA) Point being, we should be appreciative for the fact that the hometown boy wants to play for the team and revisit this in the future if it happens. All these scenarios of him forcing teams to let him play in Toronto are just crazy.

    Wiggins will most likely be drafted by some crappy franchise that tanked to get him. Even with Wiggins, they'll be mediocre for a few seasons at least (he is not LeBron). Meanwhile, the Raptors should build a solid team around JV and preserve cap space for the first opportunity to snag Wiggins in free agency. If Wiggins sees that he can join another complementary young star (i.e. JV) in his hometown, I don't think it's so far-fetched to think he wouldn't abandon a crappy tanking franchise to join the Raptors.

    Logical thinking is to snag him in free agency? That's as much of a dice roll as the draft :P

    While we're at it, we might as well assemble picks to land as many players from Brampton as possible:

    Then we can field a Jonas + All Canada Team!
