Last night Thursday (June 26), the 2014 NBA Draft took place at the Barclays Center in Downtown, Brooklyn.

Andrew Wiggins was selected first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former Kansas Jayhawks player became the second Canadian-born player to be drafted No. 1 overall, joining Anthony Bennett last season. There are now three Canadian-born top-5 picks in the common draft era, and all are on the Cavaliers (Wiggins, Bennett, Tristan Thompson).

Wiggins also joins Danny Manning, who was drafted by the L.A. Clippers in 1988, as the only players in Kansas history picked first overall.

I love when athletes makes fashion statements. And that is exactly what Wiggins did last night. Courtesy of stylist Brandon Williams and bespoke tailor, Waraire Boswell-the 19-year-old NBA rookie styled in a custom-created suit with a black satin shawl lapel and black wool trousers.

He looked very nice! He made a fashion statement with this look, and I am certainly sure that he had a lot of heads turning when he hit the stage.

When a reporter asked Wiggins what kind if pitch he’d make to get free agent LeBron James to come back to the Cavs, he replied, “I want to win. If he wants to win, we’d be good together“.

On how he being drafted will give basketball in Canada:

It’s huge. It opens doors for all the young and everyone in Canada. I wasn’t ranked. I wasn’t known. I didn’t have no offers. But I just kept my head straight and kept working on my game and look where I am today. I just think it gives everyone in Canada hope that they can accomplish what I did because it’s possible if they work hard.”

On how he felt as soon as he was drafted:

A thousand thoughts are going through my head right now. It’s a dream come true. I’ve been dreaming of this moment since I was a little kid. My dream was just to make the NBA. … It’s just a crazy feeling right now. It doesn’t even feel real.”
