The defense-void, dunk-filled exhibition served as a glimpse into the coming years for the T'wolves. Spoiler: It looks exciting, flashy and — just maybe — successful. "The future is bright for us," Wiggins said after his 22-point showing. "I think (four is) the most people (from one team) in a rookie-sophomore game. So it just shows a lot for the team. It shows us rising." USA Today Sports

Gasol and Durant are test cases. The real target will not rise into view for more than six years – Andrew Wiggins. We haven’t heard a whole lot about the Vaughan, Ont., product lately. He plays on the worst team in the league (not counting the Knicks, who are no longer functionally an NBA team). Wiggins’ embarrassing ouster from Cleveland has turned out to be the blessing many guessed it would be. He was a thin presence in the early going, overawed by the pace and size of his peers. Over the last 10 games, something’s clicked. Wiggins is averaging 21 points per in that stretch, and playing smarter defence. He still doesn’t have a jump shot, but that can be taught.

That’s a long time from now, but a great deal of what the Raptors are building is being constructed with Wiggins in mind.

It’s a keeping-up-with-the-Joneses thing – few NBA teams still practice at their arena, as the Raptors do. Toronto Globe & Mail
