Andrew Wiggins is a Beast

eww

The Peach Jam has had its highs (talking to Mike Anderson awkwardly, seeing Jeff Borzello’s hair and watching Drew blow kisses to Tom Crean) and its lows (most everything else). But the one true highlight has been watching a future star in Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins has been a revelation to me, not because I didn’t know he was good, but because he has the swagger of a future superstar. Sometimes guys just walk and run like they are going to be big stars…and Wiggins is like that. He has a silky smooth jumper, can jump out of the gym and is a treat to watch on both ends of the court. Most believe Kentucky is the leader and Assistant Kenny Payne has been courtside for every moment of every one of his games. Here are his highlights from Day One and they don’t include my highlight of Wiggins from Day Two…a behind the back dunk during warmups that was as impressive as anything I have ever seen:

    Insane. John Wall is the only guy in recent years who has made the amateur game look so easy.

    That put-back dunk at the very end was not deserving of the T that he got for it, IMHO.

    I love coach cal. But if wiggins comes here, will cal really get credit for getting him to the nba? The truth is wiggins could go work at big lots for a year and still be a too pick. I guess perception is more important than reality.

    #9- Who gives a sh**?

    This idea that “great coaching” somehow involves taking lesser talent and winning big with it is one of the most idiotic (but persistent) ideas floating around. Adolph Rupp, in his prime, had great players. Red Auerbach had great players. John Wooden had great players. Phil Jackson had great players. I’d rather a UK coach emulate those guys than try and win some kind of freaking moral victory by “overachieving” with a bunch of guys who will never sniff the NBA (and are also highly unlikely to won a national title).

    ‘Says me’, #9 must have really enjoyed the Billy G experiment then.

    Except for having more size and jump, he really does look like Meeks. Even the way he stands when catching his breath and the way he runs, almost dragging his feet. Does he do track like Meeks did?

    9) Most of the top guys are going to end up in the NBA for at least a few years. The difference is a lot of them end up staying more than a year when they go to other schools, and sometimes they see their stock fall as a result. Also sometimes they never fit in the system at all. Cal reimagines his system to take advantage of his athletes.

    Is Coach Cal hanging out with his “buddy?” Tom Creanjob?

    I do trust all the concepts you have offered for your post. They’re very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very quick for novices. May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
