Breaking news: Andrew Wiggins can jump




Andrew Wiggins may not be at the Draft Combine, but he’s still managing to win Twitter. Check out this picture of Wiggins testing out his vertical leap at P3 Sport Science in Santa Barbara. The height of the jump wasn’t given, but his previous vertical was a ridiculous 44″.  Something tells me he beat that mark.

    First, I think the jump pictured isn’t more than 40 inches. Look at things around him and compare his hight to the guy holding the stick.

    Second, Kansas much!!! Thought we were talking KENTUCKY Sports Radio???

      Come on now. The kid is jumping out of the building. But it makes no difference if he plays with no heart when the game is on the line.

      Your a fool. You have no depth perception. He’s maybe 4ft away from the wall and in the picture his toes are maybe an inch below the purple line on the wall. Move the wall next to him and his toes are 3 inches below. If the purple line is 4 ft tall then that’s pretty damn close buddy!

    The bottom of that should be 10′. That’s the starting height for the one UK has.

    Wiggins has all the skills in the world and no heart. Give me Julius anyday in the NBA if you want a winner.

      i love me some j randle. …bit wiggins was hand picked out of a catalog to play in nba. I actually think randle will be better in nba than college. Wiggins will be an all star every year before his rookie contract is up. He is an average shooter…but combine that with he will probably be the third best athlete in the nba the day after the draft behind 1) lebron 2) westbrook 6’8″ and can jump out of gym. Your talking about a very difficult man to defend. Plus he will add 20-30 points over the next few years.

    So that guy watching is 88″ tall?

    Wiggins feet is half was up the torso, so I’d say a 38″ vertical at best

    UKBB4L: He has heart. Hate him for not going to kentucky or whatever thats fine. But he cares. Watch more than espn highlights and then question his character

    I forget, but don’t you get to run and jump in the NBA to determine vertical? Or at least 1 or 2 steps? I’ve just always thougt anybody that has a 40″ vert just from standing still in place must be able to easily dunk a 12 ft. goal after running. More for the guys who are like 6’7 or taller, not like the Nate Robinson’s of the world
