If you’re an avid basketball fan you will know who Andrew Wiggins is. If not, just watch the video and you will instantly become a fan.
The Canadian phenom is quickly taking over the basketball world, and he took a small step toward that last week as a member of the World Team at this year’s Nike Hoop Summit. The 6-foot-7 Wiggins, who is expected to choose among Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina, finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists Saturday in a win over Team USA. Wiggins reportedly also took part in a quick 3-point contest during his week in Portland with Kentucky-bound Karl Towns Jr. — and lost. The kicker? Towns is 7-1.
But for those Wildcat fans with visions of Wiggins and Towns combining to give coach John Calipari the nation’s most dominant inside-out game, time for a reality check. Not only has Wiggins yet to commit to Kentucky, but Towns has reclassified to the class of 2014, meaning even if Wiggins does play in Lexington next season, it seems pretty far-fetched to imagine him sticking around for a sophomore season to team up with Towns.
Check out some highlights from Wiggins at the Nike camp in the video below.
