The NBA's#1 Overall Potential Draft Pick Training with MHS
"After leaving Memphis in December in the aftermath of an eligibility battle with the NCAA, potential No. 1 overall NBA draft pick, James Wiseman, described the saga as "heartbreaking" and said his NCAA punishment was "unfair." In his first interview since leaving school to turn professional, Wiseman told ESPN that he cried every night in his dormitory room during the turbulent episode with the NCAA, ultimately leaving school amid a 12-game suspension for rules violations that Wiseman insists he hadn't been aware occurred."

Wiseman has moved to Miami to begin training with Miami Hoop School for the NBA draft in June. Wiseman likes his chances at being the NBA's #1 pick. He said, "I trust in myself, in terms of my game and my skill level. I've just got to keep working, keep grinding every day."
