Discussing the pressure and early comparisons he's getting to LeBron James and Kevin Durant, Andrew Wiggins says that it's unfair to compare him to them right now. 

The most hyped high school player since Durant, Wiggins is just entering his first year at Kansas and is already pegged as the consensus No. 1 draft pick of the 2014 Draft, and is even rumored be in line for a $140 million shoe contract

With the hype around his spectacular dunking displays, and athletic feats, the Canadian-born baller has a level head, and says he has a ways to go before you can start mentioning his name among the best in the world. 

 

“I’ve got a long way to go before I can be compared to LeBron and Durant,” Wiggins said. “Those are the best players in the world right now and I’m still in college. So I think it’s really unfair to compare me to someone of that caliber. Hopefully one day I can be compared to them, but I think I still have a long way to go before I can be.”
