Every day, Andrew Wiggins is becoming one of the best players in the NBA and nobody can see it. For the past three seasons, Wiggins has claimed astounding accolades such as Rookie of The Year although still managing to be overlooked.
It seems whenever he makes a clutch shot or has a big game, nobody realizes. Wiggins is a great player and deserves recognition. So, here are three reasons why Andrew Wiggins is the most underrated player in the NBA.
When you think of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the duo that comes to mind is Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Both players are young stars just waiting to put their game up to the next level.
More than often, Towns gets all the attention because of his all-round play that is shaping big men around the NBA. However, Wiggins is bringing back a move we have not seen in many years: the post fadeaway.
Since Kobe Bryant retired, working for a shot in the post was the probably the last thing the teams around the league would do. Now, Andrew Wiggins has brought it back and used the move to his advantage. Although we can’t compare the players, Towns has been in the spotlight since has rookie year and if the Timberwolves don’t change that they will never find out Wiggins’ true potential.

Andrew Wiggins already has a key component you need to become an NBA superstar: clutch play. Wiggins is one of the premier late game players in the league and keeps proving it continuously.
Sometimes, he looks unguardable and is always the one to step it up in the clutch when the Wolves desperately need it. Wiggins already has tremendous confidence in his game and shows the clutch instinct that is rare for players to have.
Wiggins might not be the top dog on the Timberwolves, but he shows great leadership when games come down to the wire. If he can continue his late game dominance, he will be the Minnesota’s main option in no time.
Andrew Wiggins is flat out one of the best scorers in the NBA and it is very hard to disagree. Wiggins is averaging 22.1 points per game on a very respectable 45% clip. He has a huge variety of moves including the step-back jumpshot, the post fadeaway and the pull-up jumper.
Wiggins has also developed a three-point shot that he needed to become a complete threat. Remember this, he is not even the Timberwolves go-to-guy! If Wiggins keeps improving his offensive game, he could be hands down one of the greatest scorers of all-time without even being noticed.
The NBA has to watch out for Andrew Wiggins because eventually, he will take the league by storm and make a name for himself among the top players in the world.
