This is the second of a three-part series that will reveal my top three overrated NBA players in today's game. At number two - Andrew Wiggins.

Andrew Wiggins, 23, is now in his fourth NBA season and probably getting worse as a player. That is not a good sign. But this should not come as a surprise to many. Wiggins averaged 23 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game in the 2016-17 season.

Is Wiggins getting worse?

The Minnesota Timberwolves were a disappointment the past three seasons, given the amount of talent they had, and Wiggins was certainly a major reason for this because of an apparent disregard for improving his all-around game.

I feel Wiggins never showed a sense of urgency and willingness to do everything it takes to be great and help his team. As long as his scoring numbers were high, everything else seemed irrelevant.

Wiggins is averaging 18.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game this season. Could the additions of important players like Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague have pushed Wiggins to take a lesser role? While there is some truth to that, it is not all about the numbers. The discussed lack of fire within Wiggins is more apparent than ever this season. While the team is finally doing better and on its way to finally making the playoffs again, Wiggins is not embracing the opportunity of playing with more talented players and the challenge of improving while the team sets bigger goals.

Great players earn great roles.

Scorers come and go

Wiggins continues to be comfortable with doing what he has always done, which is to use his athleticism to get by defenders and finish with authority around the rim and occasionally make some mid-range jump shots. Other than that, Wiggins impacts the game in no other way. He continues to be alarmingly apathetic on defense.

For someone his size (6ft 8in) and with his athleticism, he could do much more on that end of the floor. He has never averaged more than 0.6 blocks or over 1.0 steals per game. His individual defense leaves a lot to be desired in terms of aggressiveness, and off the ball, he is usually nowhere to be found in help-side defense.

Wiggins' four rebounds per game could also be improved. But defense is a mindset more than anything else.

On the offensive end, Wiggins is not a consistent jump shooter. He needs many shot attempts to make some mid-range jump shots and he shoots a mediocre 33 percent from behind the three-point line. Wiggins has yet to show any signs of improvement from long-range. In the modern day basketball and on a Timberwolves team that lacks three-point shooting, Wiggins was expected to finally take steps forward in that department. His free throw percentage has also been miserable this season with only 65 percent of the free throws going in.

The Timberwolves recently signed Wiggins to a five-year, $148 million contract extension.

It continues to boggle my mind why Timberwolves' management would value him so much, especially given the fact that they already have a soon-to-be superstar in Karl Anthony Towns and an established star in Jimmy Butler, whom they should try to keep at all cost past next season. There will be little room to maneuver within the cap space in the future, and Andrew's hefty contract will be difficult to be traded.

The Timberwolves would do better with a solid all-around player who could complement their two stars. Looking in the rear-view mirror, the Cavaliers made a great deal to acquire All-Star Kevin Love in exchange for Andrew Wiggins. It remains to be seen, when, if ever, Wiggins can become a reliable player with a winner's mentality.

Scorers come and go in this league.

There is no question that the 23-year-old continues to have great potential and time to improve, but we have also seen enough from Wiggins to recognize that he is not the next LeBron James nor on the path to superstardom. Potential superstars can be singled out early and winning mentalities have no age. Andrew Wiggins should no longer be part of these conversations.
