It was just one dunk in a meaningless NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas, so some perspective is in order. But on Monday night, Andrew Wiggins flashed the combination of skill set and athleticism that made him the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft in June.
It’s also the reason he’s always just a few seconds from going viral on Twitter and the rest of social media.
On Monday, Wiggins drove against the Philadelphia 76ers before spinning back toward the lane and trampolining for a two-handed dunk.
Wiggins, who averaged 15.5 points in his first two summer league games, finished with just 10 points on Monday against Philadelphia. Yes, he still has a ways to go.
But this is the kind of play that could make him so lethal playing alongside LeBron James in Cleveland. Also: The Cavs beat Philly 86-77.
