Golden State Warriors star Andrew Wiggins will enter his first full season with the team this time around. A lot has been made about how he will fit next to Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.
“With the Jimmy Butler scenario, the losing, being a number one overall pick who was traded for Kevin Love, who was a favorite there. He is not an aggressive player, but now he is with a group of guys that are gonna teach him how to play.
“That will show him what toughness is all about, knock him around, put him in great positions to do well.”
He added, “Nobody is leaving Klay, nobody is leaving Steph, he is going to be open. Draymond will average four assists just to him because everyone is concentrating on Klay and Steph coming off killing them.
“And this kid is going to be running right behind them getting dunks and layups. If he doesn’t know it, he better understand it. He is in the best position that he could ever be in his life.”
Is there even the smallest chance that Wiggins rediscovers what made him a number one overall pick? He doesn’t have the pressure that plagued him in Minnesota with Golden State. This team doesn’t need him to do a lick more than his role.
He just needs to work on his inconsistent three-point shot and improve his perimeter defense. However, when you have Steph and Klay to help you shoot and a former DPOY winner in Draymond Green as your front-court mate, you are good.
Wiggins has a simple role to execute, and it’d be a shame if he fails at that. The Warriors are poised for success and Wiggins just needs to be what Harrison Barnes was for them in 2015.
If he can elevate himself to be a wing-player like Andre Iguodala, this team may have locked up another few years of being a powerhouse.
