Well pretty much what I said about Wiggins from the times I was fortunate enough to see a game on youtube or highlights or even his Kansas games with the rest of them.
Like I said back then I'll say now, he's got an assortment of moves and a reactive ability, the game comes easy to him.
But his jumper is inconsistent and he gets disengaged at times and focus seems to be here and there.
It seems he has the mentality of a guy that KNOWS how good he is and plays like if he wanted to he could take over a game whenever he wants, and that's why people note his lack of 'intensity' because he has so much natural ability he doesn't seem to push it hard for the entire game, but in bursts here and there.
It's a big reason why I feel Jabari will have a better college career and a more complete game than him because Jabari is constantly working to try to complete his game and has a work ethic that people compare to the higher ups, something like the kind of work ethic Kobe came into the league with in addition to his talent.
Wiggins in his demeanor on the court struck me as a guy with all the talent but lack of focus for an entire game or in general at times, if he's not careful will be another Lamar Odom before he's another LeBron James.
The focus and the jump shot needs work and if they don't get fine tuned in college then he won't be a bust but he won't be what he could have been, and there's been a long list of guys like that, currently Beasley is one. All the talent, none of the focus.
This is another reason I want Wiggins to stay in college for more than just a year because he isn't NBA ready mentality wise or intensity wise, he KNOWS how good he is but that's a problem. I hear he's a hard worker but it doesn't translate on the court as consistently as I'd like. He can pull off 3 moves to completely lose a defender and miss a jump shot and looks generally bored in the game.
Talent and Athleticism wise he is off the charts, mentality wise, he has work to do, and one year of college isn't gonna do that imo. Spacing is different in college and every play of his isn't gonna end with an easy way to the lane and a dunk whenever he wants it, spacing and speed of the college game is different than high school and his game is gonna have to adjust for that, as is his jump shot. He has a beautiful one step turnaround jumper fake, but if he clanks the jump shot it doesn't mean anything.
As of right now I've been more impressed with Jabari. Then again when you're on the cover of sports illustrated and people are comparing you to Wilt in terms of dominance it goes to the head of anyone. Hopefully it isn't detrimental to him in the long run.
