The Cavaliers trade of Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love was finalize today. Ever since the Cavs convinced LeBron James to return to Cleveland, there were several whispers that the #1 pick of this year’s NBA draft would never see a regular season game with the team. No one really knows how Wiggins feels about being shafted except for Wiggins himself, but it can’t be a good feeling.
Wiggins and Joel Embiid were former Kansas Jayhawks teammates together, so Embiid felt the need the remind his friend that a Kobe Bryant went through the same snub that he is experiencing now. Things turned out pretty good for Kobe, so Embiid wanted to make sure his friend knew that being snubbed by LeBron and company isn’t the end of the world.
