Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
The most exciting prospect coming from Canada in recent years is Andrew Wiggins. Touted as the next big thing, the Canadian hasn’t quite reached the heights everyone thought he would reach, disappointing season after season. Is that to change this year?
However, he seemed to turn a corner in 2019. He was always a talented scorer, but it’s the little things that’s making a difference. Fighting for rebounds, making the extra pass or playing defense has put the league on notice about Wiggins’ evolution, something that should’ve come earlier in his career. But better late than never, right? Scoring was the primary skill that the Minnesota forward had to offer on most nights on his first few years in the league, being nicknamed as a “inefficient scorer” or “blackhole”, but Wiggins had enough of that.
During the 2018/2019 season he totaled 8 games of 25+ points and 8 games of 5+ assists. In 17 games through the new season he already has 10 games of 25+ points and 7 games of 5+ assists, an impressive feat. His athleticism is so good, that it’s strange how Wiggins couldn’t have a positive impact on the court during his first seasons, as he clearly had the potential to be great not only offensively but defensively as well. People questioned if he could keep playing at such a high level this year. Yes he can, and he’s proving it every single night.
