Andrew Wiggins: Trade from Timberwolves to Warriors worked for both teams

Andrew Wiggins has no illusions about how some Timberwolves fans may view the five-plus seasons Wiggins spent in Minnesota — that some wanted more out of his time here than just one playoff appearance after the Wolves traded for the 2014 No. 1 overall pick in the summer he was drafted. If ever fans wondered if Wiggins heard the jeers along with the cheers: he did. “Shoot, they probably got a lot of mixed feelings,” Wiggins said in a recent interview with the Star Tribune. “So it is what it is over there. Some might love me. Some might hate me.”
Wiggins was never one to take things personally and had the kind of laid-back personality that would let the criticism run off his lanky shoulders. It was also that personality that endeared him to teammates over the years, even if his play didn’t live up to fans’ lofty expectations. “They might boo you and they might say some stuff during the game, but once I left the atmosphere and I left Target Center, I never felt no negativity,” Wiggins said. “Whatever was left was left in the gym. Once I left that world, left Target Center, there was never no disrespect or nothing like that around the city. So it was cool.”
