Wiggins has been in the States for... 2 years i think? obviously, it's not the same as Hakeem joining the HS system from another continent, but still. if Wiggins grew up in the US like LeBron and attended the school in Ohio or such from an early age, i think there'd be much more press.
i'm not surprised that some people wouldn't know him. i remember a thread this summer where people were discovering him and watching his youtube clips for the first time. the summer wasn't that long ago.
especially if someone is purely a Pacers fan who hasn't seen a high lotto pick for 25 years.
