I was referring to Parker.

It's hard to say which way Wiggins is going to go, because as you and others have mentioned, his motor and drive to be the best are in serious question. If he does work extremely hard and starts imposing his will, he definitely has the most upside of anyone in the draft.

Parker actually reminds me of Derrick Coleman to be honest. Good size, excellent offence, but lazy defence and a little slow.
I really don't think he's that slow in comparison to other NBA SF's. He has good quickness, but I think it's more a matter of him getting in pristine shape, as he's asked to do so much on Duke, in terms of not only banging inside, but being their focal point.

Plus he's a SF, and Coleman was a bigman.

His shot selection is questionable and you can't teach athleticism. He could be great scorer, but I highly doubt he will ever be a good defender

Jabari Parker looks like he will be staying a second year at Duke.
