In his third year, Andrew Wiggins has become the NBA’s Posterizer-In-Chief. Last night, the former #1 overall pick dropped 40 points on the Nuggets, and in the process, posterized Denver 7-footer Nikola Jokic with an ego-bruising throwdown that may be the best dunk from a season full of them.
Wiggins has another level of elevation that these poor defenders can’t match. A word of advice for NBA big men: If you see Wiggins coming down the lane, just get out of the way.
If not, smile. You’ve just been cast in a highlight.
