Air Canada: Andrew Wiggins has phenom buzz

Andrew Wiggins has the type of name recognition companies pay millions for. Not like Xerox or Google. Not even like Kobe Bryant or LeBron James. Not yet. But walk into any AAU tournament, high school showcase or all-star game and mention his name and there’s a great chance that someone will incorporate the word “phenom.” Wiggins’ coming out party came in 2009 at the ScoutsFocus Elite 80, where he played against McDonald’s All Americans like C.J. Leslie, now a sophomore at N.C. State; Reggie Bullock, now a sophomore at North Carolina; and P.J. Hairston, now a freshman at North Carolina. (ESPN.com)
