Nick Wiggins doesn’t think UK is the best fit for his brother


If Nick Wiggins knows anything about his brother Andrew’s upcoming decision, it doesn’t look good for the Cats.

In an interview with Adam Zagoria, Nick said that he doesn’t think Kentucky would be the best fit for Andrew because of the number of players coming in: “I don’t feel like it would be the best fit for him to make his own legacy.”

The Wichita State guard also said that their parents probably want Andrew to choose Florida State, but that they would support any decision he makes. When will that decision come? Nick said he thinks Andrew will announce in the next two to three weeks.

Just when I was ready to cheer for Wichita State to win it all…

    probably jealousy. He may not be as good as his brother and he wants to hold over him that he made it to a Final Four and his brother didnt. Thats why he doesnt want him to go to UK.
    Possibly I am reading too much into this.

    Folks, I hope we don’t trash the kid if he chooses to go elsewhere. I believe we have the pieces we need to get #9. Wiggins would be a great addition, no doubt, but he has to make his own decision. No handwringing or reading of tea leaves here – just go with the flow.

    I think at UK defenses could not key on him because of surrounding talent. I think Davis and MKG were helped by having each other on the court. I think Wiggins would benefit from having talent surrounding him worked for Celtics, Heat, and Lakers.

    Go to UK… Start, and get your minutes or go to FSU, start, and maybe get 5 more minutes per game? He said that he wanted to “win at all costs”…. The price may be to give up a few minutes. He will still be the top pick. I don’t think his brother really knows.

    maybe his brother already knows he’s coming to UK, and is happy with that. He’s just trying to make it a little more of a guessing game for the nation while we wait to hear. Doing his brother a solid.

    Pretty obvious you can’t trust everything his brother says. As a current basketball player a) he doesn’t want to see the wrath of UK on the NCAA next year and b) could be jealous of the fact his brother could even go to such a school with that level of talent.

    Actually Nick’s comments make me think that Andrew already picked UK, because Nick only mentions his thought on Ky, and that he said parents want him to go to FSU but supports wherever he’ll go

    Not only is that just a theory, but I think that honestly adds up better than anything else. Him just changing his mind makes no sense, and I think Wiggins knows he’ll only win a championship with UK. Plus I’d say he had a pretty good time with the other freshman at the blue and white game preview.

    When ask about playing in Kentucky with all the talent, Andrew Wiggins used the word “we”. At a later time Wiggins was asked about the use of the word “we” he said it just slipped. Andrew has been tight lipped during the recruiting process. Do you think maybe this is just big brothers way of clearing up the slip up? Maybe make people look the other way.

    I’m with #15. I think he’s just trying to make his previous tweet relevant (shock the world). I also wonder if it’s taking so long because of checking eligibility status (from Canada-reclasiffication). God knows we don’t want another Enes situation. Anyway, I’ll be happy for the kid where ever he chooses. Hope it’s the Blue but who knows?

    The brother’s previous comments were made before Randle’s verbal and AP’s decision to return. Why would that matter????????? With WCS’s decision to return, does that mean an overload at the 4 & 5 , moving Randle to some time at the 3?

    Well. one things for sure. Wiggins may be the best of this years class. But he’s not good enough to carry Fla State to an NCAA Championship next year. There is only one place that he has a shot at that, from the schools he’s interested in. With or without him,,,, BBN continues on.

    Was at the Mcd All American game. Noticed Wiggins on the bench. Looked like he got along great with Kansas recruit Wayne Seldon, but he also sat next to Dakari and Julius most of the time, too. I hadn’t seen Seldon play in person before, and when I saw he and Wiggins together, my first thought was I hope this guy isn’t a Kansas recruit. I opened up my program and thought OH NO. I didn’t like seeing Kansas,and really don’t like what I just read.

    I’ve seen Wiggins play in person a few times. Wiggins was always a quiet kid, so don’t know how much to read into it. He got along just fine with Dakari and Julius, but if you saw what I did Wednesday, you’d think he was Jayhawk lean too.

    I personally am ok with Wiggins moving on… I think Randle will be the best prospect out of all of them… Move AP to the small forward spot… DAKARI and Willie will make a great rotating center combo…Randle, Wiltjer and MARCUS LEE could put in minutes at Power Forward..
    Poythress and Young rotate Small Forward… Shooting Guard Harrisson and Young, point Guard harrison ,Harrison, Hawkins…

    Hood, Polson, Willis… can certainly perform on the college level… they are just down the depth chart…

    So I am really not sure Wiggins could bring that much extra to the team….

    Calipari wants a guy who can make plays even when the offense is not working… so wiggins is good insurance for that…but I think the point guard Harrison will run the offense better than any of the point guards we have had so far under Cal…

    he is probably only going to be here for 1 year. How can you create a legacy in 1 year? sure they may win the title but that just adds to UK’s legacy. I am not going to knock the kid with whatever choice he makes. my gut is that he chooses UNC or Kansas. I know he wants to win a championship but I think he is probably hesitant with all the talents UK has right now. That is not a knock on him either. He will start FOR ANY TEAM. I just think human nature and emotion are going to win over. My opinion is he goes to UNC or Kansas.

    How would coming into UK and winning a championship not be the best thing for his legacy. MJ would not be the greatest ever without his championships and Kobe/LeBron wouldn’t even be compared to MJ without their championships.

    Wiggins is gonna play a ton of minutes no matter where he goes and I’m sure he knows that. That will not be an issue My guess? Nick Wiggins is busy with his own life and we shouldn’t read too much into what he’s saying here. He did, after all, crack a joke about his brother playing for the Shockers.

    I am ready for Wiggins to announce, though. It’s exhausting trying to predict when he hasn’t given us much to go on. I hope Nick is right that it’ll happen in the next few weeks.

    My family lives in Huntington, WV and have become close with Andrew Wiggins and taken the kid under our wing. We have met his parents a couple of times and they are very good people that honestly are open to him attending any of the final schools on his list. That being said, Andrew has become very close with a girl down in Tallahassee. He also wears FSU gear often but that is likely due to his parents being star athletes at the school and that he followed the school as a kid. When my wife asked him which school he liked the best overall, she said he did not hesitate to say FSU. He said UNC was a close second. With the girl attending FSU and his parents wanting him to follow in their footsteps, I think he ends up at FSU. He could surprise us and choose UNC or even UK, but I think it is a small chance. Our entire family are diehard UK fans and would love to see him play for Cal in Rupp Arena next season. We will do what we can to promote UK, but I think it will not help much.

    “I don’t feel like it would be the best fit for him to make his own legacy.”

    A bit grandiose of a statement, no? I mean, for a player who is only planning on staying in college for one season, unless you win an NCAA title like Anthony Davis and MKG and Teague did, you have little chance of really being remembered for what you did in 8 months at the college level. You’ll end up like Shabazz and all of these other one and done players. And Wiggins aint gonna win an NCAA title at Florida State.

    A legacy at Florida State? Wiggy has one year in college and then off to the leauge as the # pick. Regardless of where he attends college. His decision is basically, what does he want from that one year? Is it a one year to satisfy the one year in college rule or is it something he wants to accomplish during that one year? It is his call. I hope he chooses UK. If not, we will be fine. Just a once in a lifetime chance to put the most talented team in college hoops history on the court next season. IMHO!

    Rose and Carmelo had very good players around them that made them stand out as superstars, David Robinson was a better college superstar then both of them but because his team was not good they didn’t make a big run in the NCAA. You can be a superstar at the college level and leave your mark, but they are not the name of the program.

    They it looks on here sounds like its a No for the Cats…but after reading the whole thing…it looks like a cover up…just saying. ….Nick on whether he still thinks Andrew’s best fit is with the Cats: “Uh, not as much as I did because of how they played this year and looking at (the fact that) they had a freshman team before this year that they all really gelled together. It’s all about combinations of players you put on the floor and how players feel about playing with each other, playing a team game. And I feel like they got a couple kids coming (back), they got seven or eight dudes that are already signed to come in off the (McDonald’s) All-America team, and I don’t feel like it would be the best fit for him to make his own legacy. But in the end, he’s going to make the best decision for him.”

    Nick says Andrew loves sandwiches, lots and lots of bread. So Andrew’s going to Kansas to live near a wheat farm so he can grind his own flour, bake his own bread, and make lots and lots of sandwiches. I know this because I have a cousin who lives near Huntington, and six cousins who live kind of close to Canada, and a nephew who drove kind of close to Wichita State.

    If Andrew Wiggins is in fact not quite sure at this point, then playing on the same team with the Harrison twins during the Jordan Classic should convince him.

    He has not played with a better backcourt in his lifetime. If he wants a championship next year, that will be his answer.

    I’m close to Biggins Wiggins who has to be related somehow to Andrew, and Biggins says he saw penny in the parking lot today, and that brought to mind two things– copper and Abraham Lincoln. Of course, the Wiggins once drove a Lincoln. But Kentucky has copper head snagkes. Biggins said the penny was lieing face up. So it was heads (instead of tails– which people do a lot of here– make up tall tails). Anyway, biggins said he was linkin the Lincoln to the Wiggins, because of the Copper Heads only being here in Kentucky, so that’s where Andrew must be going.

    Made complete sense to me. Well, as much sense as anyone else’s guess.

    Kansas seems to make sense. Plus, it puts him close to his brother. Nick’s a Junior. Andrew’s only going to play for one year. Why not spend that year at a place where you’re close to family and don’t have to play for a terrible team to do so.

    I wonder if Matt and Drew really know where Wiggy is going? This extended decision period by Wiggy keeps the posts coming and ups the log on’s for KSR. Good for business!!! If they do know I say they won’t give it away.

    Kansas has a few decent recruits, but their roster will be depleted similar to what happened to us last season.

    Like I’ve said in other threads about this kid, it’s all about him despite what they tell us about him being media shy. Listen to the words. Where he can go to best develop his skills, where he can go to get best prepared for the NBA, now where he can go to leave his dynasty. Notice, it’s never where he can go to win a championship, be part of a team, do something special. No, he’s another Shabazz. We don’t need any divas. We have enough studs to kick his ass where ever he goes next year.

    By the way, if you REALLY wanted to leave a legacy after playing just one year, then you would go to UK and try to go undefeated, but this isn’t about team accomplishments. This is all about the Wiggins showcase, and I’m not liking it at all.

    Wiggins is star of the class, BUT Julius Randall, Arron Gordan, and Jarbari Parker would all be the #1 player in most years, and we’ve got the best of those three. This is the best high school class of forwards since 1988 which had Shawn Kemp, Alonzo Morning, Billy Owen, Todd Day, Chris Mills, Laettner, LaPhonso Ellis, and Don McClean. Remember, the least talented kids in that bunch (Laettner)was the best college player.

    He either wants to be part of the greatest class with the best players or he does not.. Our system wants players who put their ego aside and concentrate on winning..Wiggins is one of the best but I am not sure he wants to share the spotlight. It takes a special player to play under our program. If he wants to be challenged everyday and play with other NBA bound players then Ky. is the place. as far as advice from his brother lets face it he is not anywhere near the player of his younger brother…..

    Clearly there’s no more obvious place to make your own legacy than at the school where Michael Jordan will always be the first name…

    Just saying, if he goes to UNC, it’s not for that reason.

    I am ready for UK to offer the Kentucky kid who cares about the program and will be there in 2017! Kentucky kids can do just fine! Darius Miller, Derek Anderson, Scott Padgett, Rajon Rondo and other prove it!
    Sign the Kentucky KID!

    109 – I agree. Give me someone who WANTS to be here, not someone who wants to go somewhere to showcase themselves. (looking at you Shabazz, future NBA bench warmer)

    Yes, who can blame him? I wouldn’t want to win a National Championship just before being the #1 Pick in the NBA draft either. Plus, why would I want to play ball with many of my peers who I already know vs. a bunch of upperclassman who will most likely be jealous of my abilities. Kansas or North Carolina it is.

    No one knows what this kid is going to do. Sit back, relax and stop trying to figure it out.

    Damn! Y’all sound like a bunch of irrational Kentucky hillbillies. lol

    I still think he picks Kentucky, I think Gordon would have been here if he didn’t already know Wiggins is probably heading here. This could be used just to take some spotlight off him for a lil while. He wants to leave a mark Kentucky would be his best choice because of the name and tv time.

    I would love to see him at UK, but I don’t think we really need him! Any school on that list would be OK for him. naturally we think UK is the best choice just as the other schools fans think their school is the best fit. Just please don’t get on his twitter and act liked fool. Remember he is going to make the best play for him not for any damn fan base.

    We don’t need another season with self centered players wanting to build a legacy for themselves. Its about team. Go somewhere else.

    You have to ignore everything that everybody is saying and just remember what Andrew himself said. “I Think We’d Be The Best College Team Ever”… “The impact on college basketball would be crazy”… “We’d win it all for sure”… “Something special” (Wiggins On
    Playing At Kentucky
    ) He knows what it would mean to play at Kentucky. There’s pro’s & con’s for each school on his list. We just have to wait and see.
