    I read that, and I said to myself this kid will be the best player in the NBA as a rookie then, and anything less means he is a bust. He likely will be a very good player, but I don't know if he'll be even close to Durant or LeBron. That's some pretty hefty expectations for any prospect.

    With all of that said HE'S CANADIAN!
    There's been some Wiggins talk, so for those of you haven't seen anything of him, here's a little glimpse:



    Personally, I am wowed every time I see Wiggins. In terms of a comparison, I see a bit more LeBron than Durant (if those are the two you want to look at) just because of his staggering athleticism and the fact that he's not near 7 feet with an immaculate shooting touch. He doesn't have the passing gifts or the body LeBron had at 18, but dare I say, he seems a bit springier to me and a hair faster off the dribble. I see him sort of as the 6'7 SF/SG version of Russell Westbrook (which sounds absolutely insane). Overall, Wiggins looks every bit the part of a future franchise player and his ceiling is as high as it gets.

    Yeah he's a decent jumpshot away from being the real deal (needs higher release). His explosiveness reminds me of vince carter. Hey we may actually find out what vince carter with some balls would have become

    While guys like Wiggins and Parker are fun to dream about, they won't be in the 2013 draft. And if the Cavs find themselves drafting 1 or 2 in 2014, something went seriously wrong.

    It doesn't have to be our pick, there is a possibility we use our assets we have been saving to get a lottery pick in 2014.

    Perhaps a lottery pick but it would at least have top 3 protection. Other GMs aren't oblivious to the talent that may be available.

Also it looks like we have our number 1 scorer in kyrie and our number 2 playmaker/scorer in dion. Any of the top players would be great on a team like ours. If we get a big (noel.zeller.len) we surrond our stud backcourt with a big that can score in the paint and shoot a jumper (len.zeller) or a defensive big in the chandler mold (noel) If we go SF we can get another scorer (muhammad) or defensive wing (poythress)

    Either way we are in a good position im happy they call it a weak draft means teams are willing to trade there lottery pick like the last weak draft 2011
    "Good thing we already have ours"?

    You need more than one star to win. Just FYI.

    People had him labeled as a superstar after his first 20 point game...LAST season.

    So, tread lightly. But I agree. I think he is obviously a perennial All Star, though. You need WAY more than that to win in this league.

    Parker is one of the most overrated prospects in some time. Would fit in well with the talent of this draft.

    He can't compare to Wiggins at all, even though the excuse makers will try.

    LeBron had a 43" vertical coming out of high school, so I doubt he beats that, but you're right in that Wiggins is springy as hell; he just doesn't need much of a gathering movement or much gathering time in order to get really high in the air. He is one of those guys who can dunk, and, after he dunks, he's still rising up in the air higher. I guess we'll have to tank one more year after this in order to get him.

    1. Shabazz Muhammad- I think he has the best chance to be a star at the next level. Not sure as to how well he would fit on this team but we desperately need scoring. He needs to get in shape though.
    2. Alex Len- The most complete big in this draft and also has high upside. Could be our starting center for 10-12 years.
    3. Nerlens Noel- Already has shown the capability to be dominant on one side of the ball. Can't teach his natural ability on the defensive end.
    4. Cody Zeller- Solid but not spectacular. I think he could be a valuable piece but I'm just not seeing star with Zeller. Wouldn't be unhappy to see him in a Cavs uniform.
    5. Otto Porter- A complete basketball player. Could step right in and make the team better right away. Won't blow you away but could be a perfect fit at the SF.
    6. Isaiah Austin- Really needs to stay in school. But if he comes out, it would be hard to pass on his talent and upside.
    7. Marcus Smart- Not a fit here but I really like his game.
    8. Alex Poythress- What position is he? I like his motor though. You can't teach that.

    After that I have no idea. Some combination of Goodwin, Plumlee, McCollum, McAdoo, Gobert.
