    Wiggins is the best NBA prospect in the last few years, much less the Big 12 this year.

    Wiggins is soft. It will get exposed in the Big 12.

    I don't really buy that. What position is he playing in the NBA? I think Niang can make a roster but he'll get owned on the defensive side of the ball too often to be a starting player.

    It's important to note, that DraftExpress excludes incoming freshman from the rankings.

    Georges is good, though.

    Thanks for that clarification. I was wondering how one could possibly exclude Wiggins from the list.

    That's one of the main weaknesses they list in the article.

    He's only played one year for crying out loud. His defense will come

    If you DX included the incoming freshman, you could back Georges up about 5 spots in the list.

    Yeah, I read that after I posted that. So you're telling me a guy that's likely to never see a starting lineup is the 7th best prospect in the Big 12? That's possible I guess since they aren't including freshmen.

    You can't teach athleticism. There have been many great college players whose game didn't translate to the next level. It's not an insult to him.

    To be honest, I was a bit surprised to see him in front of Perry Ellis, Prince Ibeh, etc. I figured they'd knock his athleticism/ measureables more.

    Well, how many conferences have 7+ prospects that will start for an NBA team?

    I'd imagine the Big 12 only having 10 teams distorts that. After thinking about it, if you don't include incoming freshmen which are the primary nba prospects I could see it.

    I'm a pretty big NBA fan. What NBA player do you think his game resembles?

    So because you say you're a big NBA fan means you think Niang, after playing 1 year of college ball, won't be an NBA player? Where can I sign up for your newsletter?

    Not sure why you guys are getting your panties in a bunch because I posted my opinion on a message board. I'm sure he'll be the next LeBron, except shorter, and not as athletic.

    Yes... because that's what people are saying. You're better than that Clark.

    Draymond Green. The playoff version of him.
