Andrew Wiggins is part of a young core that is tipped to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to the summit of the NBA in the future.
The former number one draft pick, who won the Rookie of Year award in 2015, somewhat stalled in his sophomore season, but has shown vast improvement in his third campaign with the T-Wolves.
Having scored a career-high 36 points in the recent loss to the Brooklyn Nets, the forward had an even better night against the L.A. Lakers as he put another one of the league's young,exciting franchises to the sword.

Wiggins, who was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014, smashed his previous career-high to finish with 47 points as the Timberwolves won by 26.
The 21-year-old was a constant menace and got to the line with consummate ease, showing an ability to draw a foul that rivalled the game's best, and succeeded with 17 of his 22 attempts from the charity stripe.
But he was also devastating from the field, picking up six points from behind the three-point line while shooting 40% and going an impressive 14-21 from the field overall.
Karl-Anthony Towns has been drawing the most attention since the end of his rookie campaign - where he became the first unanimous winner of the award - but it is Wiggins who has made the most impressive start to the season.
He is averaging a strong 26.3 points per night while shooting 54.8% from downtown. Surely that percentage can't last forever, but the Timberwolves need to make the most of it.
