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.”
