“What kind of debate is that?” — Stephen Curry backs Andrew Wiggins to be considered as a worthy All-Star candidate.

After dropping a season high 31 points, Wiggins got the nod from Steph as a serious candidate for the All-Star Game.

Andrew Wiggins, the 6'7" forward for the Golden State Warriors, has been with the franchise since 2019. He has transitioned into becoming a regular starter for the Warriors and is returning the faith invested in him handsomely. 

A trusted figure

Since joining the Warriors, Wiggins has been entrusted with more responsible roles as Steve Kerr and his fellow teammates all realize the talent that he withholds. With the long-standing absence of Klay Thompson from the Warriors roster, he became the prime link for Stephen Curry and managed to strike an amazing connection with Curry. Though the Warriors struggled in those seasons, it could have been worse if it wasn't for Wiggins' performances. He led the Warriors along with Steph for most of the previous campaign before Klay returned to the court.

Steph was all praise for Andrew and exclaimed: "What kind of debate is that?" which was a reply to a question put forward by the sportscaster on whether or not Wiggins should be considered as an All-Star option. 

In their most recent outing, the Warriors defeated the Clippers on the back of a season-high 31 points by Andrew Wiggins. He is currently averaging 19.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, with a healthy three-point shooting average of 43.5%.

All-Star material

Wiggins has already been an All-Star, and he managed to do so on the back of one of the best seasons of his life in 2021-22. He's a dominant player in the paint and is equally good at shooting from beyond the arc. Wigs has developed better defensive gameplay over the years, which has helped the Warriors franchise. He has a strong physical presence and isn't afraid to transition toward the rim with full intensity and hammer down on his opponents.

It boils down to Wiggins keeping up with a healthy momentum and remaining consistent week in and week out with his game plays if he wants to be rendered a strong candidate for an All-Star spot. With Klay and Steph sharing the court with Andrew this season, he can start drawing some positives from them.
