The 2014 NBA rookie draft class has a ton of promising talent that could end up being All-Stars, champions, and potentially even Hall of Famers way down the line.
Now before we get too ahead of ourselves, we have to wait and see how these men end up playing in real game situations. However, when you see some of the plays the rookies pulled off today while challenging one another in a trick shot challenge, your jaw is certain to drop to the floor.
Let’s begin with No. 1 overall pick, Andrew Wiggins of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Although the speculation is that he will end up in a Minnesota Timberwolves uniform by month’s end, let’s see what Wiggins had in store for fans while donning his Cavs jersey today:

Will Wiggins and LaVine be teammates by the time September rolls around? We will find out soon enough.
Let’s move on to Mitch McGary’s wild alley-oop session with some fellow rookies:
