For the Timberwolves to truly ascend into elite status, Wiggins will have to prove to be a special, transformative talent but the clock is ticking on that sort of progression. Wiggins continues to go at his own pace, leaving that slow-burning fire inside and unmoved by outside criticism. “I don’t really care much with people’s opinions. I just play. I don’t really talk or listen to the outside. I kind of have a close circle I listen to, and that’s it. Anything else, I don’t even,” Wiggins told Yahoo Sports. “Jimmy’s not a guy that can really be replaced by one person. It’s on the whole team to do that. I’ve got to be more aggressive. The ball is in my hands more, so I have to make good decisions. Some games, my shot may not be falling, I may have a bad game but I always feel good, always feel confident.”
