INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - The Cleveland Cavaliers introduced the newest member of its team and No. 1 overall pick from the NBA Draft, Andrew Wiggins, during a press conference in Independence Friday afternoon.
Wiggins said he said all of his dreams are coming true and it's a stunning feeling. He went on to say that he is ready to get into the game and get started with the team.
"I just want to come in, create an impact right off the bat, offensively and defensively, bring the teams to the next level and just be a good teammate, be a good part of the organization, and I want to be on the offensive team, be rookie of the year, make the all star team, all that type of stuff," Wiggins said.
Wiggins said his love of basketball started when he was young with great influences from his father, former NBA player for the Houston Rockets, Mitchell Wiggins.
My father always really emphasized that fact. Defense. Everyone knows defense wins games. I really took it personally among me. I tried to set goals every game about the person I'm guarding and just trying to lock them up.
Wiggins played for one year at the University of Kansas where he averaged 17.1 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game and made 34.1 percent of his three-pointers in his freshman year.
