    Default How will Wiggins change this franchise?

    If by any stroke of luck (and lots of tanking) the Raptors land Wiggins, how much do you think it will impact basketball in Canada?

    Bigger than Nash playing in Toronto?
    Bigger than VC?
    Will superstars come flocking to join him here?
    Will MLSE give in and shell out money to acquire every possible talent to surround Wiggins with?
    Will JV, DD, Wiggins, Ed and Lowry be good enough to make the team a contender?

    this kid has the same leaping ability as vince carter and blake griffin, we'll have the nba eating out of the palm of our hand if we get this kid.

    Please! Even if Wiggins is as good as advertised, the NBA would never let us have him. They dont want a canadian team to win. They want champions only in Amurrrica!

    I hate the idea of thinking 'what if we draft a certain player', especially a couple years in advance. I get that Raptors fans want something to be excited about, but nothing good can come from that line of thinking. The odds against it are ridiculous. We'd need Raptors management to basically agree to waste next year, after a full wasted year this year, and then we'd need to actually win the lottery, which are unlikely odds even for the worst team. That said, I'm all for Raptors trading assets for multiple 2014 draft picks, because that's a solid rebuilding strategy regardless of the odds of getting the 1st overall pick.

    I'm really excited that the guy's Canadian, and I hope that he'll continue to be enthusiastic about representing his country internationally, and that the rest of our young NBAers will want to play on the national team just to play along side him. But imagining his impact on team Canada (which he's already a part of) is much more realistic than imagining his impact on the Raptors.
