Wiggins keeps throwing down crazy angry dunks at FIBA Americas

Andrew Wiggins might be using the world stage to put everyone on notice that he means business entering his second season in NBA.

The 20-year-old is playing for Canada at the FIBA Americas, and he's making a habit of dunking on inferior opponents.

But we've started to notice some attitude from Wiggins. In two of the three dunk videos below you'll see Wiggins get in the face of the guy he slams on, and it's quite exciting.

On Monday, Wiggins dunked on a guy's face and stared at him long enough to nearly get the ball thrown back at him. As Zach Harper put it, the guy from Uruguay was nothing more than a prop in the latest Wiggins highlight (Cue up the video to the 15-second mark to see it for yourself).

Wiggins also gave Argentina's Andres Nocioni a bump after dunking on his face last week.

The first guy Wiggins dunked on was ex-Wolf J.J. Barea.

Wiggins appears hungry, angry and confident, and it should make all of Canada and Minnesota very excited about what he has in store this coming season.
