Remember the Andrew Wiggins Draft? The one everyone -- inside and outside of the NBA -- was waiting for, even before a single pingpong ball had bounced to determine last year's lottery? Now it's all about the draft's Big Three. Wiggins, after a solid but unspectacular freshman season at Kansas, is still in the running for the No. 1 pick. But he's got company. Fellow Jayhawks frosh Joel Embiid (center) and Duke's expert bucket-getter Jabari Parker (left) can each make a case for the top spot. Who will be No. 1? While the Cleveland Cavaliers wait to officially go on the clock, we gathered the trio in Los Angeles for the cover shoot of ESPN The Magazine's 2014 NBA draft preview.
