I became a wolves fan because of wiggs also but over time lost hope in him... and he and the wolves needed to break up.

Wiggins has scored a lot of points and he is in the lists of the all time leaders in many categories for the Wolves.
Second in total pojnts, first in 3points etc. He is part of Wolves history in a difficult period.
Together with him it is time for me to leave this board. Happy to discuss with all of you, you are a good company.
I will read you and wish you the best

Why you want to leave. Things just got very interesting.


Because I became a Timberwolves fan because of Wiggins. I am not American and I root for players not teams. However, I became a fan of the Wolves with the years. I will root for the Wolves but I think more for the Warriors now.
And I have to say that I have a Wolves Jersey 22 that I will continue to wear :)

I understand, but hope you still drop in on us from time to time.

This could be really good for Wiggins too. He has a great opportunity.

I think I've agreed with many of your thoughts about Wiggins over time. I hope he has a better run for Warriors and they can use him more effectively than this team did. If the Warriors have been watching with a critical eye, they might see the way to get the most of him. I think they will elevate his consistency in shooting based on their staff, coaching and players around him. We will end up jello over that I'm guessing. Maybe they can even get him to be more explosive on the regular basis, my main issue with him all these years and something I could never let go. Good luck reading the Warriors fans stuff, it's a bit pompous for my tastes but they sure are a lot more positive.

It's about as good an opportunity as one can get really. Aside from hopping on one of the other teams heading for the finals.

I too exit the fanbase today. I was a wiggins fan who cheered for the wolves because of him. Now I become a warrior fan with all the trials and tribulations that entails.

The biggest tease of a player I think I can remember watching. Just couldn't consistently meet his potential in Minny. I think that and the emotionless body language on the court always made him a frustrating player to watch. I always wondered if he actually had the drive to improve. No doubt he will frustrate us more in the future with some big games against us.

Wesley Johnson 2.0. I hereby swear to NEVER AGAIN draft or trade for a low motor guy who has potential. Wes Johnson, Wiggins, Olawakandi. You can't teach it you can't turn these guys up, they are who they are, way too much work. If we are drafting again and we here a guy has questionable desire or activity level, on to the next one!

I really hope he can find success in Golden State and changes his narrative. Very frustrating player but hard not to root for.

Short test in Golden State gear, but so far shot .339 threes, .627 FTs, 2pt% climbed up a little with attempts going down, rebounding went down while Steals/Blocks both went up quite a bit.

We will see but I lost faith some time ago. I just don't believe he will be a good player. He will always have his moments though and I wish him luck. I won't be upset if he figures it out someday.

I am also still steadfastly against drafting anymore motor issue players. Never again, the only way I will be ok with it is if they are a latte round pick and its basically low-risk high reward. Not taking anyone in the lottery who has that issue again. Wesley Johnson, Jaric, Caged Lion, and Wiggins have scarred me for life.
