Saw the tweet below about Jabari Parker being more polished than Andrew Wiggins and wanted to comment on it.
Real talk, I dont think Jabari Parker is getting the respect he deserves, hes a more polished ball player than Wiggins right now

You would want either one of these players on your basketball team. If you could get both, you would do it without question because a team with that amount of talent could do truly special things. That is not likely to happen though, and instead we will most likely be watching these two develop a deep basketball rivalry. They have said all the nice things so far, but things are bound to get testy down the line when they are standing in the way of each other’s goals.
Parker probably is more polished than Wiggins at this moment. The Simeon (IL) forward’s footwork is outstanding and his shooting game is going to develop quite nicely.
Here’s the rub though.
Wiggins can jump out of the gym. When he goes up for a slam it looks like he is bouncing off of a trampoline built into the floor. And when his basketball mind catches up to his basketball body, then we are going to witness things that truly amaze when he steps on a basketball court. This is going to be fun times folks. Strap your seatbelt in for college basketball this season, because you are not going to want to miss a beat.
