Anthony Bennett (2013), Andrew Wiggins (2014). Have you heard of them? Yeah they are Canadian!

Brampton, Toronto. Ontario.

Andrew Wiggins (Toronto) is pretty much guaranteed the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He actually, probably, would be the #1 draft pick in the upcoming 2013 Draft, if he was eligible.

Bennett (Brampton, ON) is making a case for the best player in college basketball right now thanks to his amazing start to his NCAA career.

The freshmen, from Brampton, Ontario is averaging 19.3 points, 8.9 rebounds for the 10-1 UNLV Rebels. Bennett has posted six games with 20-plus points and has six double-doubles in the process.

The two played AAU Basketball with Canadian/Toronto based CIA Bounce and have proved themselves at every stage of the game. Wiggins will get his shot at the NCAA next season as the World awaits his "Decision."

Wiggins transferred from Vaughan Secondary to Huntington Prep in West Virginia after dominating the Canadian Basketball High School scene while his team leading to the 2010 OFSAA AAAA Ontario(State) title.

Bennett, decided to leave Canada as well, heading out to Las Vegas to play with Finlay Prep, following similar steps as current Canadians in the NBA, Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph.

Thompson has already made history by becoming the highest Canadian Basketball Player ever drafted in the modern era, by going fourth overall to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Draft.

With Wiggins #1 spot nearly cemented in 2014 and Bennett's hot start to his NCAA collegiate career, one of the "buzzing" questions out there is where will Anthony Bennett go?

There's no doubt Bennett is a lottery pick, we have known that for well over two years.

One thing is for certain, as long he keeps playing the way he has he might just beat Wiggins to the punch and make Canadian Basketball history.
