VIDEO: Andrew Wiggins posterizes Karl-Anthony Towns, Warriors bench goes crazy
Andrew Wiggins in an athletic freak, and he showed exactly that as he embarrassed his former Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns with a poster. Of course, the Golden State Warriors absolutely loved it.
Late in the second quarter, Wiggins found himself with an open path to the basket. Towns, despite knowing what’s coming, jumped in an attempt to block the Warriors swingman–though to no avail.
The whole Warriors bench stood up in celebration of the crazy scene, with Andre Iguodala and Gary Payton II clearly in awe of what they just witnessed. The broadcast is also worth listening to, as commentators shared how the dunk basically destroyed Towns’ pride. Ouch!

Considering Andrew Wiggins’ history with the Timberwolves, though, it’s hard to blame the Warriors for the celebration. The dunk is basically like Wiggins saying “this is what you traded for D’Angelo Russell.” And he did it on Karl-Anthony Towns no less.
Wiggins had little success during his time in Minnesota, and he was often criticized for failing to live up to the hype of being a No. 1 pick. With the Warriors where he doesn’t need to be a star, though, he has thrived and is actually producing great numbers. Away from the pressure of being the Timberwolves’ savior, the Canadian swingman has found the perfect home in Golden State.
