It would be an overreaction to last night’s overtime victory over the Warriors to proclaim that it heralds the Timberwolves’ arrival. It was just one game, after all, and the team is still just 26-52, the fifth-worst record in the NBA. It also remains to be seen how they deal with the organizational turmoil caused by…
For a maybe-bad team, the Wolves are really fun to watch. Karl-Anthony Towns looks good and tall and spry, Ricky Rubio is finally healthy, and Young Cock Andrew Wiggins has, so far, done a better job converting his all-world athleticism into production than last year. And he won Rookie Of The Year last year.
Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins will be named the 2014-2015 NBA Rookie of the Year on Thursday, according to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears. Wiggins was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who traded him to Minnesota. Wiggins averaged 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds a game. [Yahoo Sports]
Listen, man, we're all ready for the NBA regular season to be over and for the playoffs to just start already. Russell Westbrook slaying the world is great and all, but the Raptors and Wizards zombie-shuffling their way toward what will be the saddest first-round playoff series in history while the rest of the…
James Harden must have been feeling pretty cocky after turning Ricky Rubio's ankles into cornmeal, because he tried to pull the same shit on Andrew Wiggins just a few minutes later. Unfortunately for Harden, Wiggins looked at all those fancy crossovers and said, "Hi, um, I'm not Ricky Rubio."
There wasn't a whole lot to say about Andrew Wiggins in the early part of the season, because before dunking all over Kevin Love, he wasn't really doing much to get excited about. Lately, however, the 19-year-old rookie has started to look like a pretty damn good NBA player.
Andrew Wiggins had one of his best game as a pro tonight against the team that drafted him first and then traded him away, punctuating his 27 points with this thundering tomahawk jam that Kevin Love—who Wiggins was traded for—wanted no part of. Of course, the Timberwolves lost by 20 because they aren't very good,…
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Cleveland and Minnesota have finally agreed on the exact trade that everyone has assumed will happen for weeks. Cleveland will send Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and a protected first round pick to the Wolves in return for Kevin Love, who will agree to a long-term extension to stay…
The NBA's incoming rookie class was collected in New York City over the weekend for the annual rookie photo shoot. While there, a few of the class' high-flyers participated in an impromptu dunk contest that was carried out over social media. Oklahoma City rookie Mitch McGary was the unquestionable champion of this…
Andrew Wiggins did a short interview on SportsCenter this morning, and the questions went from mundane to Bram Weinstein eventually leading Wiggins into making a public plea as to why LeBron James should keep him on the Cavaliers. It was weird.
Sure, it's NBA Summer League action but Andrew Wiggins is still out there doing it. The Cavaliers and Sixers summer squads are playing tonight and Wiggins just pulled off this silky-smooth-yet-powerful dunk, slashing through the Philly defense on the baseline and throwing down with two hands.
After LeBron went to the Cavaliers, the new question was if the Timberwolves would now trade Kevin Love to Cleveland and ideally receive first overall pick Andrew Wiggins in return. So far, the Cavaliers have publicly said they don't plan on sending Wiggins anywhere.
The Cleveland Cavaliers took Andrew Wiggins with the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He's the second Canadian-born player to go first overall, after Anthony Bennett last year. Hopefully, he will be better than Bennett.
Russell Westbrook is sitting at home right now like, "Who the fuck does this rookie think he is?"
NESN reporter Ben Watanabe is very upset at the Philadelphia 76ers. If you were to read the first half of this, you might come away with the impression that Ben Watanabe is upset at the Sixers for being so tight-lipped with the media about Andrew Wiggins's recent pre-draft workouts. But that's not really why Watanabe…
Here's Andrew Wiggins jumping really, really high during a workout. Blah, blah, basketball is more than jumping, Rudy Gay Harrison Barnes, whatever. Just look at this shit.
The Johnny Manziel-Drake bromance continues apace. "Draft day, Johnny Manziel / Five years later, how am I the man still?" begins Drizzy's newest song, giving rarely seen prominence to the athlete-shout-out portion of a rap song (poor Andrew Wiggins gets second billing).
Andrew Wiggins scored 41 points in a furious comeback for Kansas that came up just short. He also had eight rebounds, five steals, four blocks and two assists. The Jayhawks freshman was pretty much unstoppable against the Mountaineers, who watched a 25 point lead dissolve into a 92-86 nailbiter win at home.
For fans of shitty NBA teams, the 2013 season is about little more than which team can manage to suck the hardest for a chance to draft Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker. Thankfully for those fans, TankingForWiggins.com exists.
