Have nothing against Parker, even said I'd love to have him on the lakers
Im just speaking towards the comedic wiggins bashing that was happening in the first half only to be made into idiotic rhetoric after the 2nd half because well
Wiggins was actually on the floor.
It's really not close. I'm sorry if people think it is. This really is mayo vs rose part 2.
Parker scored about 80% of his points on jumpers. Why? Because tbh he struggled to penetrate when it wasn't a broken play. It's an issue. Parker has a ceiling because of his athleticism level
Wiggins does not. Of course he could be a lazy ass (which he's not) but when he gets a paycheck he could. But there is no ceiling. He lacks nothing other than fixable issues such as a jumpshot
Parker lacks things that are impossible to fix. Lateral quickness, overall athleticism
Honestly from my viewpoint I think he's so skilled because he had to develop ways to make up for his lack of athleticism
They are all fresh, they are 18 year olds playing their First few games of the season. Not to mention wiggins moved without the ball MUCH more than Parker so thats an excuse
Why? Because Parker struggled to beat slower guys than wiggins off the dribble, not to mention couldn't defend anyone.
Me being from Chicago probably has some bias for people like Rose and Parker, so I always thought Rose was better.
And you're saying exactly what I already said, Wiggins has more upside, DUH. He's a freak of nature. My problem is you zoning in on Parker's flaws and basically acting like he is nothing, Guy is gonna be great.
Great debate by the way( not sarcasm). It's refreshing to talk to someone who actually knows something about BBall.
