Who's Getting Wiggins
« on: April 18, 2013, 06:10:10 PM »
This is the OP of a thread TangoBlue started over on Smokerunner...
I thought maybe it would be good to bring it over, and get this new forum off the ground...
Thanks, NGS!!!

Been a lot of talk from everybody but Wiggins, and it seems to be down to one of four teams...Florida State, North Carolina, Kansas, or UK.  As a Kentucky fan I would love to see him pick UK; but wouldn't be too upset if he didn't. As it stands I think UK is a potential Final Four team without him...but just like bigguns...more is better, so cmon down to UK Wiggins.

If he picks UK, I hope he already knows how to make free throws. grin1

Not to blow sunshine up Coach Cal's ass, but it seems to me that there is not a lot of room for Wiggins in Kentucky.  He starts irregardless, but maybe he would like to go somewhere where he can be a bit more isolated.  The "shine" factor.

If Wiggins is anywhere near as good as he is billed, any coach would make room for him.
I do understand, however, if Wiggins wanted to go where he would, to use your word, "shine" more.

You could be a great player on a team of lesser caliber players and "shine" more...definitely true!  But the fans might start to think of you as a ball hog. Especially if you are the only one who can consistently finish plays.

Not to knock any players from any school...but Anthony Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist gave it(the shine) up for team play at UK, and they were drafted Number 1 and 2.  A very good player went to the west coast to "shine" and didn't get near the pub (at least here on the east coast)  that Davis and Gilchrist got.  AD and Gil shared with 3-4 other guys and still took top billing in the draft. As for the west coast guy...we'll see.

c'mon down here Wiggins...No California girls.....but some dang good team-mates will be found at Kentucky

Nah...it's cool Cali.  You saved my lazy azz from having to do it.

 Hey KyHilljack..drink a few PBR's for the NGS forum...then get your UL arse in gear and start firing up some "go big blew" jokes. As a Big Blue fan I got a lot of laughs out of them. ber

With the Harrison's, Randle and Young (and others) coming in and Poythress and WCS staying there is alot of talent and ball hungry individuals already.  If Wiggins is comfortable in thinking that he is the number 1 overall in the 2014 draft I think Kentucky would be a great choice.  If he has any reservations whatsoever he might want to pick a school where he would be the go to and be able to "shine".


I don't have a dog in the fight.

Rumors I've heard say he's headed to Chapel Hill. With Bullock leaving he'd start, wouldn't be fighting for minutes like he would be at UK, and wouldn't be the majority of the offense like at FSU. Of course, Kansas makes about as much sense as UNC, too.

If he chooses a blue-blood and it isn't UK, I'd rather it be UNC than Kansas.

TangoBlue - I don't recognize your SN, but your av seems really familiar.
My main id over at cBS was ukfanfrombirth...did you have another SN over there?

I would say Wiggins is coming to SU....But SU is so damn loaded....there just isn't room.  The boy would do best to go to a team where he would see some PT.   FF1

Yep...he's gonna be a Jayhawk.
I was hoping, if he didn't pick UK, he'd pick UNC.

I would bet money he feels more comfortable in Kansas as a Jayhawk.

Last time I looked, John Wooden wasn't available but Wiggins is a Jayhawk.

Nice outfit, Baby.
