So. Much. Happened last night as the Minnesota Timberwolves won an emotional game against the Oklahoma City Thunder thanks to Andrew Wiggins randomly going off for 40 points and giving Flip Saunders’s son his first career victory as the interim head coach.
I can’t even write about how beautiful of a moment that was because Wiggins had a lottttt more to do that night besides help his coach take home the W.
Jesus, Wiggins. No wonder Minnesota was able to get the win last night. Wiggins took out Oklahoma City’s best rim protector.
That’s like in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia when the gang had to coach youth basketball to serve their probation and they taught the kids to wear combat boots to stomp on their opponent’s feet and put paper clips in their wristbands so they can stab the other kids.

Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Andrew Wiggins had one of the weirdest nights in NBA history. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Follow on Instagram so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
