With the first overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft the Cleveland Cavaliers helped make Canadian basketball history by selecting Canadian phenom Andrew Wiggins.
Wiggins the unanimous choice for top pick since 2012 finally had his dream come true on what has been labeled one of the deepest NBA Draft’s in recent history.
The 6-8 Kansas Jayhawks freshman rose to stardom from a Youtube video when he was just a skinny and humble ninth-grader and tonight in front of close friends and family the young man from Vaughan, Ontario became the second Canadian player to be selected first overall joining fellow Canadian and new teammate Anthony Bennett who was also selected the No. 1 pick in the 2013 Draft.
Wiggins averaged 17.1 points per game in his lone season with Jayhawks setting the freshman rookie scoring record.
