    Minnesota getting Wiggins is a pretty good pick up since Love would've left for nothing

    Minnesota gets Wiggins, Bennett, Zach Lavine, and Thad Young.
    Thad has always been decent, but if Wiggins, Bennett, and Lavine all pan out then we basically have another Thunder 2.0 team in the West. :(

    It's cool. Flip Saunders is in charge so they'll find some way to squander Wiggins prime. It would be hard to be worse than McHale or Kahn but by god I think he has what it takes.

    Pau Gasol all over again. A loser "star" who can't do jack **** as The Man on his team, lucks out and gets to play with the best player in the game

    And I was so excited to James take a young team to the finals

    This is better for Wiggins' growth than if he stayed in Cleveland.
    I hope he adopts an alpha dog approach sometime soon though, he's a bit too passive. Almost Harrison Barnes passive.

    So you're saying LeBron James would stunt the growth of a player? That would be quite the convenient excuse for Wiggins' fans to make

    James might stunt his PPG, but if Wiggins can play, I can't imagine LeBron icing him out

    Instead of stunting him, LeBron would have taken the pressure off Wiggins for a couple of years and he could have developed without the pressure of the world on him. I'm not so sure he will blossom in Minnesota, especially with a loser like Flip Saunders as coach.

    Not for a while though. Maybe in 2 years?
