"But the truly destructive part of Wiggins’s defense is how much of it there was. In the way that defenders like Draymond Green or an in-his-prime Tony Allen seem to be in all places at all times, challenging seemingly every shot on the floor, Wiggins is omnipresent in his awfulness."
"A quarter of all points from the floor scored on the Lakers’ Team Of The Future were on dunks, as though the goal of the defense was to corral the opposing team into the most efficient route possible on the way to the rim."
"But he also has by far the smallest offensive role on the team. Kevin Love, who has seen his role reduced drastically from his superstar days in Minnesota, got 37.8 touches per 36 minutes. James got 66.8; Irving got 67.2; even Iman Shumpert, who cannot dribble, pass or shoot, got 30.1. Richard Jefferson, who was drafted when Thompson was 10 years old, got 26.8."
"Like Marcus Smart, Thompson has other skills that are important to the Cavaliers. They trust him with important responsibilities. Just not with the basketball."
"Smart contributes in other ways — mainly through being Point Guard Ben Wallace — and his shooting percentage did, briefly, see an uptick in the playoffs. That’s enough to make him useful, at least on a team that gets stomped by the Cavs."
"Thanks to a draft-day trade, Tom Thibodeau is reunited with defensive stopper Jimmy Butler, and not a moment too soon. Butler will be joining forces with the single most catastrophic defender in the league: Andrew Wiggins."
"D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance, Jr. played 108 minutes across 20 games this season — not a huge sample, but not quite nothing, either. By pure net rating, they were the second worst lineup in the league (-28.3 points per 100 possessions), trailing an especially grim configuration of Sacramento Kings."
EDIT: Pretty surprised by the response to this post. It was just an article I thought was funny..really just a collection of blurbs with harsh/funny critiques. The idea that Wiggins wouldn't provide an upgrade over empty space made me laugh to myself so I put it as the title. Besides the first quote in the text it's not about him at all lol..I liked the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I can’t be the only one wondering this. I joined way back when to see news and updates about the ps5, ask and find answers about support issues, and to see new game announcements and trailers—that kind of thing.
I don’t care to see any more screenshots, of anything.
I don’t care that you just beat a demon’s souls boss.
I don’t care that you pulled out a clutch win on Cold War.
I don’t want to see a heavily awarded post asking what game you should play first.
I couldn’t give a shit that you got the world record in a time trial in Astro’s playroom.
These kinds of posts utterly dominate this sub and posts I come here for are few and far between. So, instead of downvoting by default I’m hoping at least one person can direct me to a sub more in line with what I’m here for.
I don’t care if I’m coming off as a dick, I can’t stomach seeing another generic screenshot post with fucking thirty awards.

You can use this to figure out how long it will take you (probably want to use desktop/tablet):
