    Who will be the #1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft

    I know that the NBA draft is 5 months away or so but I wanted to see what your opinions were about the topic. I know this also depends upon what team gets the #1 pick.. But as of now who would you pick as the #1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft?

    I'll be honest I've been disappointed with Wiggins so far. I'd say Jabari Parker.

    I know Wiggins has monster potential but I haven't seen it consitently yet.

    Like you said, it depends on the team but you could make a case for a few players ......Embid, Wiggins, Parker, or even Exum

    But does that matter? He's an 18 year old. Who cares what he is NOW. What matters is what he'll be 3-4+ years from now.

    I still think it should be Wiggins. I still think he has the most star potential. But I don't think you can go wrong with either him, Parker or Embiid.

    It all depends on who nominates. I'd go with Jabari followed by Embiid IF they both nominate. If they don't, Wiggins and Exum are in the mix.

    I understand your point, and as far as the Magic are concerned (I know your a fan too that's why I bring em up), I think Wiggins or Parker is this best fit.

    I guess another concern I have with Wiggins is his lack of agressiveness at times on the offensive end. I don't know if it's just him trying to fit into Kansas system or what but I don't see that killer instinct at times.

    I see parker going #1. I see wiggins sliding undeservedly in the draft, but he'll have the greater pro career.

    Depends who has the #1 pick..

    Bucks - Jabari Parker
    Orlando - Wiggins
    Philadelphia - Wiggins
    Boston - Embiid / Randle
    Utah - Randle
    Cavs -don't have a shot at it, but if it was the Cavs id expect a major stretch... say Doug McDermott ?

    How far do you see him dropping ? Because I can't see him slip past 5

    I'd go Embiid, then Wiggins, then parker although I've only seen 2 games of each. I really like what I've seen of embiid so far he already looks very good both offensively and defensively. Hasn't Embiid only been playing basketball for like 2-3 years too?

    way,way,way too early to have any real idea...though i'd say embiid(and maybe parker) has probably overtaken wiggins for now.but again,way too early to know,that can definitely change

    Jerry West or Larry Bird? The discussion is over.

    Wiggins and Embiid have the highest upside followed closely by Exum and Vonleh. All have the hyperprototypical physical tools at their positions, excellent size, elite athleticism long wingspans, the ability to shoot and score at the rim and to hit free throws. Those are my top 4 followed by Parker, Randle, Smart and Gordon.

    Since Embiid and Wiggins have near equal upside as they both can be elite two way forces the player that stands out over the next 2 months and at the combine will earn the #1, the other will be #2. If Wiggins starts consistently dropping 20 ppg he will probably go #1. Might depend on who drafts him though.

    I love Parker too and he will likely average 18+ ppg his rookie year and get ROY but the guy doesn't have the two way potential that some of these other guys do and at the end of the day defense is just as important. Randle has had a huge knock on his stock because of his defensive potential.
