Yes, agreed that there is pretty much no shot at getting the #1 pick. And even if we were worse than Charlotte, the ping pong balls would probably get us the 4th pick or something like that.....
But I don't think Parker is in the same class as Wiggins. Parker is a very talented player. but Wiggins is projected to be on the level of LBJ/Durant. It's a pretty unanimous consensus with scouts. Every scout that I've read in different articles all say that he is the best prep player since LBJ.
Not saying Parker isn't going to be a force, but the skill set, size and athleticism that Wiggins has, doesn't come around very often.
I've seen a fair share of interviews with Wiggins, and everything written up about him portrays him to be a very standup kid. Polite, humble, very coachable.
He's got the genes, dad was a 1st rd pick and mom was an olympic silver medalist in track and field (both are FSU alumns).
I'm very excited to see him in the pros. Same goes for Julian Randle, Jabari Parker, the Harrison twins...if these kids are all one and done - which most will be, 2014 is going to be incredibly stacked with talent. Too bad the #1 pick is a pipe dream.
