The number 1 Pick of this year's NBA Draft Andrew Wiggins received a wonderful tip from one of his childhood heroes Dwyane Wade that will surely help him in his NBA Journey.
The young gun bumped into Wade in the latter part of the Miami Heat-Minnesota Timberwolves match few days ago. His coach, Flip Saunders instructed him to guard the 2006 Finals MVP. Unfortunately, he was schooled by Wade as the Heat cruised past the Timberwolves, 102-92.
Despite the loss, Wiggins learned something very important from the multi-titled NBA veteran. He revealed to the media that Wade whispered something positive to him during their head-to-head match.
“He asked me if I wanted to be great. I said yes. He said I’ve got all the tools to be great, just keep workin,” the Kansas stand out shared to the media after the game.
“Those words at the end of the game just motivate me. Already I’m thinking about what he said, and it’s going to carry through for a long time now. He’s one of the people I watched growing up, one of the people I idolized. That guy right there is great," he added.
