Q: You had a game early this season (Dec. 23) against Cleveland where I remember hearing that a light bulb went off for you that day, where you saw LeBron (James) and really realized what it would take to be the guy every single night. Do you remember that game and was that the case? Andrew Wiggins: I remember the game you're talking about. That was a big game for me, going to Cleveland to play against the team that drafted me and obviously has the best player in the NBA. It was a great game for me. I loved it. I loved the atmosphere, what it meant to play against that team for the first time. I have no regrets about the game. I think I gave it my all, and that really set the tone for me in terms of knowing what I needed to accomplish and what I needed to do to get to the next level and how good I can be. USA Today Sports
Q: People always talk about the Cavs subplot with you, and the what-if idea about how you would have fit with that group – especially with Kevin Love being hurt now. But is that all behind you now or do you think about it? Andrew Wiggins: Me? I never wish hate on nobody, no team or nothing like that. The NBA is a business, first-hand, so I never really hate against nobody. I hope (the Cavs) go as far as they can go. Like every other team in the playoffs, I don't have no favorites and hope everyone does good. If I do watch a game in the playoffs, I just want it to be a good game. I'd rather see a good game rather than a blowout, so I don't really have no favorites. Kevin Love is hurt, and I hope he gets healthy soon and gets a chance to play. I want the best for all of them.

More than half of the city's residents were born outside of Canada, so in some ways the globalization of basketball is coming home to roost, with immigrants bringing their interest in the sport as they settle into a pre-existing NBA market. "I feel like basketball is the biggest thing in Toronto," said Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins, the Toronto native who was the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft. Bigger than hockey? "I think so," Wiggins said. "I think it changed over." ESPN.com
