This list of Andrew Wiggins GIFs probably gives the Cleveland Cavaliers some mixed emotions.
On the one hand, the GIFs restore the reputation of their front office, proving that they do actually know what they’re doing, and that wasting the number one pick in 2013 on Anthony Bennett was a one-time error in judgement. So this must make the Cavs happy.
On the other hand, these 25 Andrew Wiggins GIFs—taken almost entirely from his stellar rookie season—will probably also make the Cavs wonder whether or not they made a terrible mistake tradingWiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love, a guy who can’t seem to be happy in Cleveland and might end up leaving via free agency after just one year.
Of course, if Cleveland wins a championship this year, it’s Andrew Who?
But if they don’t, and Love leaves, and LeBron gets old, and the Cavs never win a championship? Well then these GIFs are probably gonna haunt them forever. In which case…um, sorry?
Oh hey Kings defenders. I didn't see you there. Have you guys been here long? Yeah? Well, this is awkward.
25. What Defense?
Even this kid's uncontested dunks are majestic, aren't they? He just kind of floats to the basket.
24. Cutting to the Basket
Even when Sacramento actually tries playing defense, they're no match for Wiggins's sick spin move.
23. Spin Move & Layup
Oh silly Rudy Gobert. You can't give Andrew Wiggins an opening like that! He's quick like a rabbit.
22. Posterizing Gobert: Part 1, Angle 1
One second you're just chillin' in the lane, minding your own business. The next Andrew Wiggins is dunking in your face.
21. Posterizing Gobert: Part 1, Angle 2
Andrew Wiggins doesn't just dunk. He's also got some sick moves and a nice jumper. Just ask the Pacers' George Hill.
20. Turn-Around Jumper
Hey, Wiggins doesn't keep all the alley-oops for himself. He shares them with his friends—friends like fellow T-Wolves rookie Zach LaVine.
19. He Passes, Too!
Look at that footwork! This kid is lightning. Houston's Pablo Prigioni didn't stand a chance.
18. Step-Back Jumper vs Rockets
Hey look, Wiggin's step-back move works on MVP candidate James Harden, too!
17. Step-Back Jumper Redux
"Damn that kid is fast." – James Harden's beard
16. Burning Harden on the Baseline
Would you look at that? Andrew Wiggins plays defense, too.
Did you hear that, James Harden? HE PLAYS DEFENSE TOO.
15. Solomon Hill: Rejected
Some people said the Cavs should have taken Jabari Parker with the #1 overall pick.
Andrew Wiggins disagrees.
14. Jabari Parker: Rejected
You know, Wiggins was also pretty good in college...the one year he was there.
13. College Daaaaze
"Can Kevin Love DO THIS!?"
12. Eat It, Cleveland
Look at Wiggins soar. He's like a majestic bald eagle that plays basketball.
That's right, another Andrew Wiggins alley-oop dunk. Basically, all you have to do if you're this kid's teammate is throw the ball in the air somewhere in the vicinity of the basket and Andrew Wiggins will dunk it.
10. Alley-Oop Again
At regular speed this looks like a pretty normal dunk. But in super slow-motion you see Wiggins twist around in mid-air and dunk the ball from the side because he was going so fast that he overshot the front of the rim.
9. Steal, Fast Break, Dunk
This dunk is not a big deal you guys. It's just a between-the-legs reverse-360. Anyone can do it.
8. Through-the-Legs Reverse 360º Dunk
I don't know what Rudy Gobert did to piss Andrew Wiggins off a few weeks ago, but Wiggins showed the Frenchman absolutely no mercy.
Let's look at this one in super slow-motion from a couple other angles to appreciate its majesty...
7. Posterizing Gobert: Part 2, Angle 1
Seriously man, what is Wiggins's wingspan? Ten, eleven feet?
6. Posterizing Gobert: Part 2, Angle 2
Sorry Rudy, I don't mean to rub it in, but just one more look, okay?
There. No more GIFs of Andrew Wiggins postering Rudy Gobert.
5. Posterizing Gobert: Part 2, Angle 3
Every times Andrew Wiggins dunks, Sir Isaac Newton rolls in his grave.
4. Taking Flight
Most of us would be happy if we could just touch the rim. Andrew Wiggins gets his hands two whole feet above it.
3. Mad Hops
Good Lord. On this one, Wiggins gets so high he actually has to fold his arms a little bit to get the ball in the basket.
2. Gravity Is For Suckers
Those Rockets defenders don't even know what the hell just happened.
Oh, and did I mention that Andrew Wiggins just turned 20 in Feburary? The kid can't even buy a beer yet.
I think he's going to be pretty good.
