Andrew Wiggins, Zach Lavine create new nickname

With the NBA season about to begin, Canadian Andrew Wiggins and his Minnesota Timberwolves teammate Zach LaVine have named themselves the "Bounce Brothers."

The rookie duo has only just begun their careers but have already decided that their combined talent is worthy of a nickname. Wiggins and LaVine say they were inspired by the Golden State Warriors' "Splash Brothers," Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

The "Bounce Brothers" could bring a lot of excitement to the Timberwolves this season leaving Minnesota fans hoping these two rookies can help the team bounce right into the playoffs.
