    if wiggins signs and 2 or 3 of our freshmen return, next year could be a historic team (or not). we’ve all learned from this year that things don’t always go as projected, but, damn, on paper next year’s squad has the most talent i’ve ever seen. before someone else says it, i know the games aren’t played on paper

    How is he not the #1 coming out of high school. If he can handle that good, shoot threes and dunk like a grown man, not to mention the blocks. The only word that comes to mind is WOW!!!!!!!!

    1 — Your totally right and there is no need to backtrack on any of your statements about this team being great. It’s not just on paper that they’d be great, but it’s on the floor that we can tell they’d be great. Wiggins already dominated against older competition at last year’s Nike Hoop Summit and other games, and Randle and the Harrisons have been beating up on older players as well for many years. This team will be tremendous. Most people could sense that this past year’s team wouldn’t be all that strong and most knew there was no real superstars on the roster except for maybe Nerlens and his defensive ability. Everyone knows that the Harrisons, Randle, and Wiggins are flat-out superstars.

    James Young and possibly Dakari Johnson should be on the USA team.

    It’s funny that the Jordan brand classic puts so much emphasis on the world even though Jordan hated the idea of overseas players back bfore he was the unseuccessful owner of the bobcats.

    Agree 13 – especially about Johnson since there are no other centers on the team. You would think the team would have the #1 center in the class. Of course, Young is #2 or 3 SG and could easily be on team.

    13, 15) Just what I was thinking. Young should’ve got in over that kid from Pennsylvania, why are so many national guys, that don’t make rankings, undervalue him?

    14-This isn’t the Jordan Brand roster. It’s the Nike Hoops summit. USA vs World. JB classic is high school players from American high schools.
