wiggins can shoot and dribble... where have u been... he might not shoot as well as jabari yet but he will develop a jumper

I've watched every game so far of Kansas including preseason. Watched all all-star games and many high school games of Wiggins. His only offense is a nice spin move and he seems to have developed a bit of a step-back jumper. Outside of that, he can't do anything for himself.If the lane is not WIDE open, he will likely travel, lose the ball, shoot an airball, or pass it up.

I don't know if anyone watched Wiggins tonight against Villanova, but he was downright atrocious. 

 

He shot .375% from the field for a grand total of 10 points to go with his 3 rebounds.

 

He has too much Harrison Barnes in him.

 

Too much hype and not enough game.

Speaking of Harrison Barnes I think had about 25 or 26 against the thunder. Wished we woulda took him.

But to the prospects. I remember watching the all American games and seeing all the prospects. The guy that clearly stood out to me was randle. He was just a better ball player. Never even seen wiggins do much. And now your seeing him and Parker start off strong. I still don't see what people see in wiggins. Can he be good and a all star one day... Of course. But the second coming of lebron or something like that? Idk. Just never understood that comparison.

I missed that Warriors/Thunder game but Bill Voth was tweeting about it and said that Harrison had his best game yet as a Warrior.

I'm glad to see him doing well (albeit at the expense of Andre Iguodala getting hurt).

Hopefully Kendall can work himself back up the league too.

This fight as been had many, many times on this board and I'll say what I've always preached.

 

Until you land AT LEAST 1 superstar in the draft, especially in a small market, you won't win poo. Being a perennial 8 seed lands you in no man's land in the NBA. Basically, the Bucks. 

Give me the shot at the superstar, because time and time again, it's proven that you do not win in this league until you draft one. Making the playoffs would be fine and dandy and a welcome sight to Horncat fans...but it also sets the team back 5 years if they decide they're cool with being abused by the Pacers/Heat/Bulls every year in the first round and going home without anything. 

Not as bad as the Bucks, more like the Hawks.  To quote "Trailer Park Boys" more like the "ShiitHawks." Only problem is (no pun intended) there are more then one ways to skin a cat.  Boston and Miami both signed a version of "the big 3".  Memphis has done a good job of solid low key FA signings then supplemented nicely with the draft.   Ideally we need our FO to simultaneously have a great year in FA and in the draft.  We only get good if everything culminates at once.  Sort of like cooking a hot meal. I don't really advocated intentionally sucking, but we are one big off season away from being good.  

 

If we can grab a tall athletic guard that can shoot and another big man....hopefully Wiggins we are set.  But then we're going to sit here the next two seasons waiting for them to develop.   At some point you just gotta win.

 

I thinks this is a bad position for us Cat fans to be in.  At one point do we expect to win?

I understand your sentiments, and the reality is we're not going to be a dynasty anytime soon.  Like the Panthers lets just get relevant first then anything can happen.  I think we'd all agree we would be ecstatic with a series win.  If we can get a series win we could probably draw more enticing free agents.  I'd don't know though.....maybe most disagree with that.

He's certainly not what he was hyped up to be.

I'm a UNC fan, I would know.

Through trades (we don't have assets) or FA. They're big markets, who already had stars there to team up with others (Pierce/Wade). Not to mention the no tax thing in Miami. We can't skin the cat that way until we gain a lot more assets (through say, this draft). Thus, basically needing to get lucky and land a superstar where others may want to come join up.
