Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins Set to Lead Canadian Basketball to Resurgence in 2016

Andrew Wiggins High School Basketball: McDonald's All American Games

Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins are part of a new wave of Canadian basketball talent that is sure to make tsunami waves in the 2016 Olympics.

“Bennett was the first Canadian to go No. 1 overall and kids look up to that say, ‘I can do that, too,’” said Adrian Wadden to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “We haven’t had that before.”

Some teams will be tanking next year for Wiggins who has been hailed as the best player to come out of high school since Kevin Durant. I see more of a young Tracy McGrady in Wiggins but that is just me; Wiggins is similar in his athleticism and length to McGrady in my opinion though.
