Andrew Wiggins Calls Kobe Bryant ‘Closest Thing To Greatest Ever’

Heading into the NBA draft lottery on Tuesday night, Andrew Wiggins will be one of the top tier prospects tuning in to find out where he could be going on June 26. Wiggins is expected to be selected among the top three picks in the upcoming 2014 NBA draft and the results of the lottery will be crucial to his immediate future.

The potential number one overall pick in the upcoming draft spoke about who he’d like to face one-on-one last year before winning the Gatorade Athlete of the Year award. Wiggins didn’t hesitate to say Kobe Bryant would be the player he’d like to face because via ESNEWS:

“He’s the closest thing to the greatest ever. I think Michael Jordan is the greatest ever, but Kobe is second.”

Before committing to Kansas last year, Wiggins was considered to be a top prospect for the 2014 NBA draft. The hype surrounding Wiggins was comparable to LeBron James when he was in high school with many believing the Canadian would become the next big superstar in the NBA.

After one year with the Jayhawks, Wiggins is still considered to be a top tier draft prospect, but no longer the consensus number one overall pick. Wiggins may still be the first player selected on June 26, but Jabari Parker (Duke) and Kansas teammate Joel Embiid could end up going ahead of him.
