The NBA draft is coming up in a few weeks. Most teams would be anxious to get a player the caliber of Andrew Wiggins. The 6’8 high-flying forward has been pegged as the #1 pick in this years draft since his senior year in high school.
After an up-and-down freshman year at the University of Kansas, Wiggins is still considered one of the top 3 picks in the draft behind Duke’s Jabari Parker and fellow Jayhawk, Joel Embiid.
Let Wiggins tell it, he should be #1 on everybody’s list.
“I always put myself No. 1 above anybody else. That’s just me. I got a lot of confidence in myself,” Wiggins said Monday on ESPN’s “First Take.”
Both Chad Ford of ESPN and DraftExpress.com have the 6-foot-8 Wiggins going No. 1 overall, ahead of Duke’s Jabari Parker and Wiggins’ Kansas teammate Joel Embiid.
“I think for me, Jabari or Joel, I think we all want to go No. 1,” said Wiggins, who averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in his only season at Kansas. “But it’s not the end of the world if we don’t because there’s been a lot of great players that ended up to be the best ever, and great Hall of Famers, that never went No. 1 and still had a great career.”
