The Minnesota Timberwolves are better than they’ve been in a very long time. Much of this is due to the leadership of elder statesmen Kevin Garnett, and the youthful vigor of potential Rookie of the Year Karl Anthony Towns. But the centermost point of the Wolves success is undoubtedly Canadian whiz kid, Andrew Wiggins.
Athletically and skillfully effortless in his every movement, Wiggins has quickly risen through the ranks of the league’s best. adidas Basketball showcases three new Crazylight Boost 2.5 PEs for Wiggins, all of which bear unique sentiment to his family roots and those of his origins in Minnesota.
The “Marita,” which ties back to Andrew’s mother whose a world-class sprinter, is the first of the three. Secondly, the “North Star,” calls to Minnesota’s state motto and lastly, the “Home Away From Home” pays tribute to his journey from Canada to the NBA.
