This isn't a discussion on where he will choose.
Chris, sorry for beating a dead horse, but do you still think a decision might be made in Brooklyn? I ask because I figured we might have heard something publicly from his camp by now.
I was hoping so too. Not looking very likely right now.
Doesn't appear so. ESPN was pushing for a show it could air tomorrow, which clearly doesn't appear as though it will happen now.

Maybe we should just retitle this thread "The Wiggins Thread" and all teeth gnashing and hand wringing can go on here.
I wonder if he's waiting to see what it's like to play with the Twins. Hopefully that's the case and he really enjoys it.
I don't think that has much to do with it at this point.
So what's the hold up then? Are they just looking for a date? You have to think by now he has a really good idea of where he wants to go.
I wonder how many people are gonna make a big deal out of this tweet
"Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle, and the Harrisons all playing together in practice.Wiggins hasn't touched ball in last 4 possessions." (@FinkelsteinNERR)
A lot I'm sure.
The Harrison's sure didn't have a problem passing in the McD's game. Neither did Randle for that matter.
And could the guy have picked a smaller sample size than 4 possessions? Guarantee that Wiggins is getting plenty of touches in practice, and will get quite a few in the game where it really matters.
I was thinking the same thing. Hell it's an all star practice, what more do they do than scrimmage? A few drills?
Haha pretty much. And someone tweeted the guy back and asked him what were they doing, were they forcing bad shots, not setting screens, etc. And the guy responded "Oh yea, they were jacking up 3's, forcing a lot of bad shots..."
Oh no! They're forcing bad shots in a high school all star game practice?! C'mon dude...

I hope these guys make every effort to gel with him. I know Randle has....the Harrisons must now.
All that I can think of is that A Davis and MKG went 1-2 in the 2012 draft. They got the fewest attempts of anyone in the starting line up.
The only thing that Wiggins needs to do is play his game and we will be just fine.
Adam Zagoria tweeted that Wiggins, Randle, and Chris Walker were putting on their own version of "Dunk City" in practice.
If Wiggins is that good and everyone says he is, then it doesn't matter where he goes. He seems rather vague. What has he said will be the determining factor(s)?
Not happening this weekend to my understanding.
7 ESPN recruiting experts made a Wiggins prediction. 5 picked FSU, 2 picked KU. Sorry no link, it's insider.
Thoughts? Chris? I know you will probably give us more info tomorrow, but just wanted to know what you thought about these predictions.
How did the experts do on the Randle prediction? At this point, if it is not UK, then anyone of the others ones except UNC.
Not good. I don't recall the exact details but very few "experts" were picking UK. The problem is these guys don't know anything and they're guessing. They look at UK and think, "too many stars" and then just dismiss us. They have no actual knowledge of the recruitment or what Andrew really cares about. They will continue to pick against Cal & look completely foolish on decision day.

If Wiggins parents are supposedly pushing Andrew to FSU, why did they let their other son go to Wichita St? I'm sure he had the opportunity to go there if he wanted to even though he wasn't highly recruited.
I was thinking the same thing about the 'too many stars' argument. They don't realize that Wiggins could come here and not feel as much pressure with so much talent around him. He knows at UK he would be in the spotlight regardless of the other AA and he sees the affects of playing with a great team. More notoriety.
How many of those same "experts" predicted Randle to UK? That's what I think of it. They should probably do themselves a favor and if they don't know, stop making predictions.
Well said Chris. Maybe these "experts" should join CatsPause so they know what the heck is going on.
only 1 of the experts picked Randle to UK, and that same person isn't in the list this time around.
I believe that one that picked with Jerry Meyers, and he didn't do it this time for Wiggins.
What's funny is that Dave Telep said this. Source with influence in the decision said it's been Kentucky. Another source tells me it's between Kentucky and Kansas...
then he goes on to guess FSU.
Everyone in the list start out with "i'm guessing."
