Parker will be a safe pick. He can help them make the playoffs straight away.

If Embiid falls to the Celtics, I'll go ****ing crazy.

If the Cavs choose Wiggins, I'll have to jump on the Cavs bandwagon. 3 Canadians on the same team?

this draft is pretty meh if embiid goes the oden route

wiggins has legit bust potential. and jabari will most likely be nothing more than a good scorer

Forna guy like him it may be easy to get by being a little over weight in college but in the pros it will show...

This is ultimately why I think the Cavs will pick Wiggins. The chemistry that they can build with those three is too good to pass up. I'm almost certain they're all familiar with eachother, coming from the same city and everything. They can build an identity right off the bat.

I think Wiggins has almost zero bust potential, without factoring in potentially devastating injuries.

Worst case scenario he's prime Shawn Marion. He can score 18 ppg on transition buckets, put backs and 3s with plus defense at the very least. Whether he takes the next step to being a guy that can take over games as a scorer is the question.

Supposedly was 255 and 11% body fat at the Cavs workout according to Chad Ford.

Or he can end up as the black joe alexander

He has shitloads of potential. But everyone that followed college ball knows he's far from a sure thing or a finished project
