The 2014 NBA Draft is one that could quite possibly go down in history as one of the greatest. The potential that this class will bring to the league could quite possibly be one that changes the NBA as we know it. But some are more ready than others, and these five guys are destined to be stars at the next level.
Andrew Wiggins has all of the physical tools it takes to be a star at the next level. His athleticism, defensive ability and offensive skill will all transition to the NBA. All that’s left is for Wiggins to develop a scoring mentality.
There shouldn’t be any doubt in any NBA general manager’s mind that Jabari Parker will become a star. The NBA is an offensive league, and Parker has elite offensive potential. His intense desire to win will carry over to the NBA where he will become one of the league’s top players.
The best compliment to Joel Embiid’s sheer talent is his tremendous upside. For Embiid to be as dominant as he is with only a few years of experience goes to show he will become a star in the NBA. It’s only a matter of time.
Julius Randle is a freshman who averages a double-double with 15.1 PPG and 10.7 RPG. But the numbers don’t tell the full story. His ability to make defenders look foolish around the rim as he imposes his will is rare when it’s paired with a shooting touch and ball handling ability. Randle has it all.
Many criticized Marcus Smart for returning for his sophomore season after being a projected early lottery pick. Although he had some behavioral issues this season, Smart has the intangibles of a NBA star with leadership, passion, scoring ability and most of all, he hates losing.
