    LeBron only said that so he can have fun annihilating them. Those players needs to stay in school for 2 years at least .

    Jabari and Wiggins balled out. I still think Jabari will have the better college career and rookie season because he’s more polished today.

    Idk if it’s just me or what but I didn’t see all the hype with Wiggins last night. I was way more impressed with Jabari. He was moving without the ball, bringing it up the court, hitting the pull-up midrange. His game looks more polished to me. Too many times I saw Wiggins standing around and not moving to get himself open. He’s talented don’t get me wrong but I don’t see why he’s the obvious choice as the number 1 pick.

    he was nervous as hell. LOL, he’s an 18 year old kid who doesn’t like attention, being thrust into a national TV game in his second college outing.
    Jabari is extremely polished, and probably the better player at the moment, but he doesn’t have the raw physical tools that Wiggins does. Wiggins has the chance to be a game changing type player on both ends of the floor. Jabari is more a mix between Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony, both on offense, and on defense.

    LOL yeah I know I’m sure that had to have been tough. Don’t get me wrong the kid has skills and is a top 5 draft pick already I just like Jabari more. Hell despite my hate for all things Kentucky Wildcat I like Julius Randle more than both of them.

    Just based on the one game, Parker is the guy I would want to draft first. He is a surreal talent plus he’s already got nba size. Wiggins only hit one outside shot all night – granted it was a slick stepback jumper that put the game away – but he put up a very quiet 22 points.

  • Motorboat

    Wiggins was in early foul trouble and took over the game when it mattered the most. He had a easy 22 and 8 with a nice step back, getting out in transition, and slashing to the rim. Plus, Kansas had established a post game and Self rightfully so decided to stay with it.

    Parker played 33 minutes and did most of his damage when Wiggins was on the bench which he was suppose to do. Wiggins played 25 minutes and got easy baskets. I would like to see a more perimeter game from Wiggins tho.

    Parker was phenomenal but he disappeared late in the game, where as Wiggins and Randle rose to the occasion.

    I was impressed with all 3 tho and wouldn’t be upset with either one on my team.

  • Motorboat

    Which is not a bad thing. I do think that Parker is more polished right now tho.

    I didn’t agree with the decision to post him up all game though. The guy has crazy talent and he can actually move without the ball which is what puzzled me. Wiggins being on the bench had nothing to do with Jabari’s numbers IMO because he barely even checked him. They both were dealing with foul trouble and Jabari actually fouled out. But I do agree with you that you can’t go wrong with either 3. I’m actually for Randle as the number 1 pick.

  • Motorboat

    Yeah, I didn’t mean Wiggins being on the bench had anything to do with his numbers. I meant Parker wanted to put the early stamp on the game and make a statement early. You can tell it was eaten at Wiggins when Parker started going off. Either way, a exciting college basketball season is ahead of us. Kansas really impressed me with their post game and pinpoint entry passes.

    Oh ok gotcha. Yea I agree with you then he definitely wanted to make an early statement especially playing in front of his home town. I’m very excited for this season hopefully my Cardinals can take it again this year!

    my thing is, Randle’s game is the most reliant on being physically superior to everyone he’s playing. Once he gets to the NBA, he will be physically inferior to many being an undersized PF.
    Parker is the most pro-ready right now, and could very well be the best player from this draft class, but he doesn’t jump off the page as an athlete, which is what leaves the door open for a guy like Wiggins

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    I think his handle is good enough to translate to a SF so maybe he won’t have to bang down low with the PF. I guess it’s all opinion based as far as who you’d choose.

    idk man, his strength is definitely in the post. he is like an uber athletic Zach Randolph out there lol

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Lol that’s true I mean he did have a whopping 8 TOs yesterday. Yikes!

  • Clos1881

    Parker is the better player as I have stated in previous post he looks like a basketball player and wiggins looks like a athlete playing basketball, in the words of roger mayweather skills pay the bills.

  • therichardkirby

    Eh nah I think Randle is going to struggle initially getting his shot off against the long and athletic 4′s in the NBA. He’ll get rebounds and hustle, but I don’t know how much he’ll impact the NBA game immediately. Parker is the most NBA player among the three. It’s not even close.
