    This kids going to be good, I used to think he may be just another so so player til’ he he scored 50 because of media criticism.

    He reminds me exactly of a better Dominique Wilkens, better, stronger, faster, better defense.

    I used to play with this kid at the JCC in Thornhill. I got his dad’s autograph cuz he used to be in the NBA. Never thought Andrew would turn out like this tho

    His height has a lot to do w him being great imo, if he was 6 foot 4, would have won this award?

    so he’s a better version of an All time Great Hall of Famer. That indeed escalated quickly.

    @facebook-100000166716900:disqus Guys I never said he’s BETTER as of right now I said he reminds me of a better Dominique (their playing styles are very similar!) I just think Wiggins has all the tools to be a better player once he’s in the league, like this kid is GOODDD
