Before the season began in both the NBA and college basketball, most of the talk surrounded the 2014 NBA Draft and the potential superstars who would be available after one season in college.
Andrew Wiggins of the Kansas Jayhawks and Jabari Parker of the Duke Blue Devils led the way with Jayhawks’ center Joel Embiid seeing his stock rise throughout the season until a back injury in early March ended his season.
After what was considered a weak draft class in 2013 (A couple of players, including Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic, Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers, Trey Burke of the Utah Jazz and Tim Hardaway, Jr. of the New York Knicks would probably disagree), teams positioned themselves for a top pick.
Although Wiggins did not quite live up to his hype (it would have been impossible for him to do so), he is still the overwhelming favorite to be the top choice in this summer’s draft.
Our friends over at Bovada have been kind enough to send over their latest odds.
