Wiggins Has Big Plans for Canadian Team
Canada is well represented in entertainment, music and, of course, hockey. With teenage hoops sensation Andrew Wiggins leading a wave of young talent from way up north, basketball might soon be a point of pride also.
Wiggins, 18, is viewed as a superstar-in-the making and is expected to be the No. 1 overall selection in the 2014 NBA draft, as well as the primary building block of Canada’s international team.
The United States will remain a power in international basketball because of the sport’s popularity and the depth of talent it possesses. Spain, France and Brazil also are expected to remain competitive, although Argentina’s reign as a power may be coming to an end because of an aging core. With Wiggins leading the way, Canada could soon join the ranks of the elite.
“Everyone should be worried,” Wiggins said.
