Give up, I will tell you shortly. Everyone wants instant success. Cleveland wants the best NBA prospect to help them win now. Based upon the aforementioned 1st year stats do you think this player would help you win now and make the playoffs? Do you see the progression each year. My point being everyone is enamored by Parker. He might be the right pick, nobody knows. Supposedly, he is more NBA ready, nobody knows for sure. You pick the best long term prospect, not the best first year prospect who helps immediately. In my opinion, I believe Wiggins is the best long term prospect. He has a lot of flaws but he is only 19. Come talk to me when Wiggins is 24. Watch this kids videos. His head is near the rim. Wiggins can come in next year, play solid defense, fit in with the team, average about 10ppg,4 reb,3 assists. Who wouldn't take that from a 19 year old. The above prospect had a lot of flaws as well. He is now one of the top 10 NBA players of all time, KOBE.
