Andrew Wiggins Burns ‘NBA 2K17’ for His Low Rating

Not a lot of people know it, but Minnesota Timberwolves wing Andrew Wiggins is a multipsort athlete—and I'm not talking about track, in which his mother won Olympic silver in 1984.

No, the 21-year-old's second sport is of the less active variety—video game Call of Duty.

And he's been nasty at it for a while now, going back to his lone season at Kansas.

“I play every day for a couple hours,” Wiggins said in February before he and teammate Karl-Anthony Towns—who destroyed D'Angelo Russell in NBA 2K17 earlier this week—squared off.

Even KAT had to give his teammate props—kinda.

“Other than today, I have a very positive record against Andrew," Towns said after falling to the 2015 Rookie of the Year. "He’s a fierce competitor, but there’s levels, and I just seem to be on another one usually. But today he had a great team.”

So when he was confronted with his rating in NBA 2K17, Wiggins had the perfect response.

Looks like he went to the Dez Bryant school of brushing off supposedly insulting video game rankings.

Maybe he's just not happy with his in-game dance moves.

Nah, it can't be that.
