    I feel sorry for UCLA coach Steve Alford. He inherited a group of talented chuckers and his athletic director gave him a schedule that was mostly creampuff in non conference games.

    Jalen Rose just compared Andrew Wiggins to DeMar DeRozan on his podcast.

    Says, Wiggins upside is T-Mac. But right now he sees him as a DeRozan type of player.

    I've watched like one and half Kansas games + some highlights, and I've already seen Wiggins make multiple defensive plays that Derozan would not have made if were playing on that very same team.

    I like Jalen Rose, but every once in awhile he says things that are completely, 100% asinine.

    That made me laugh. There's a reason Jalen has a podcast and isn't being paid by any teams to manage/scout.

    Wtf lol

    i love DeMar but Wiggins has much more raw talent than him. He's also a much better defender

    Was he talking offense? If so, alright, I can accept that.

    If he was talking total player, including defense, Jalen got this one W-R-O-N-G..... in my humble opinion of course

    Why should anyone take offense to DeMar comparisons especially the way DD has played lately?

    I don't see the Wiggins/DD comparison at all...they aren't in the same league physically, defensively or open court wise. Even half court Wiggins uses screens to get into the paint whereas DD still can't in his 5th season

    It isn't that it's offensive, it's that it's inaccurate. Or, I suppose, it's the inaccuracy that's offensive and not the comparison itself.

    Although let's be real, it's an offensive comparison. I know who Demar is as a player, and this is not him:

    Jalen probably just trying to get some hits on his podcast. As usual, mention any Raptor and things go a bit crazy.

    forget about the obvious differences in defense and overall game. anyone that tells me wiggins shooting stroke is similar to demar did not watch him when he was younger. demar was smaller with a better motor but he was nowhere as good as a shooter. we knew he was work in progress when we took him.

    It's a "worst-case" comparison, and a pretty damn good one at that.

    I'll take a flyer on a player whose floor is DeRozan.

    Fixed. We don't know what he's going to be at the NBA level yet.
