With the #TankforWiggins movement in full effect for a plethora of teams in the NBA, he has one request. Don’t compare him to LeBron James or Kevin Durant. At least, not yet.
“I’ve got a long way to go before I can be compared to LeBron and Durant,” Wiggins said. “Those are the best players in the world right now and I’m still in college. So I think it’s really unfair to compare me to someone of that caliber. Hopefully one day I can be compared to them, but I think I still have a long way to go before I can be.”
There’s nothing wrong about what he said, because who would want that pressure of living up to the two best players in the NBA right now. I mean, the kid is barely entering his freshman year in college. The only other player to garner hype like this was LeBron James — which he eventually did a pretty good job of living up to. But let’s see how the kid does in college first, no?
With that said, Wiggins is expected to be a one-and-done player at Kansas this season, and is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. After that, then we can start comparing him to LeBron and Durant…right?
