Christmas came early folks. Some new Andrew Wiggins footage just hit the youtube ariwaves and there is some good stuff in here, but the best is yet to come from this young man. You can check out the whole video below and there is some great footage and interviews in here.

Drew Ebanks does a nice job here interviewing Wiggins and both of his parents as well. The part is great where he is asking the young Canadian forward if it was a goal to get to be the top pick in the draft.
“It’s a dream” Wiggins responded.
It is getting closer to reality every day for Wiggins and though it is not guaranteed he will be the top pick, if I had to put money on it right now there would be no question. He was the Gatorade high school athlete of the year, so he has to be the favorite for now.
Jabari Parker might be able to challenge Wiggins for the mountaintop of best player in the class, but keep in mind Parker might even stay longer than one season or go on a Mormon mission and blow up the twitter sphere. In any case, fully expect Wiggins to be the top pick in next summer’s draft and he certainly has quite a few teams scrambling for draft picks.
