Steph Curry effect is real: Andrew Wiggins is a surprise All-Star starter and the internet reacts

NBA All-Star Starters

When Andrew Wiggins was announced as an All-Star starter, some people lost their minds

The Western Conference All-Star starters have been named: LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic, Ja Morant, and Andrew Wiggins. Yep, you read that right. It’s not a typo either. Here’s the internet’s reaction to the surprise inclusion.

Internet reacts to Wiggins’ being an All-Star starter 

When Andrew Wiggins was announced as an All-Star starter, some people lost their minds. Not only is he a first-time starter, but some questioned if he deserved it more than other forwards in the West.

Andrew Wiggins did enough to be a reserve for the West All-Stars. He is averaging 18.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game this season. Not exactly eye-popping numbers, and Stephen Curry had a lot to do with it with him campaigning for his teammate to play in Cleveland.

“Wiggs has been so consistent all year with the way he’s playing on both ends of the floor. Don’t want to get too ahead of myself but No. 22 should be in Cleveland this year the way he’s hooping." according to NBC Sports

The coaches and Adam Silver will determine the reserves, but you can’t tell us Wiggins is more deserving than Luka Doncic and Devin Booker. There are tiers to this, and while Andrew has been great and vastly improved his game, he’s not on the same level with Luka and D’Book.

Congratulations to Andrew Wiggins, and may he prove all the doubters and bashers wrong. Light it up in Cleveland!
