His offense is rough at times (obviously) but he’s the strong voice guiding the defense lol

He mentioned he learned a lot from draymond. Plus with a proper defensive scheme this time round, along side pat bev, he’s becoming one of better defenders on our team.

13

u/cooperred Warriors Dec 07 '21

Yeah I member that interview. I'm more surprised at the rough offense part tbh.

3

u/AlHorfordHighlights Dec 07 '21

There were a lot of signs that he was never going to become a complete offensive player. He has great control of individual possessions but not great control of the game, if that makes sense. I think it comes from his lack of explosiveness. His mind moves faster than his body

2

u/kirinboi Timberwolves Dec 07 '21

I think it’s the reverse. He can take control of the game well in general since he calls the shots on defense. It’s just that our offense doesn’t flow well so Ant, Dlo and Beas end up chucking. I think any decent shooting combo guard would be great along him, something along the lines of a FVV kind of player.

It’s weird cause okogie could be the one but he has no offense. Beas and Ant are kinda undersized for SFs.

Thats true, but game changed. Nobody expected him to be a scorer, Rubio was famous for assits and defense. After Curry everyone started to expect point guards to score. Back then they wanted Jason Kidd or Rajon Rondo type of Point Guard.

u/Dense_Resource Dec 07 '21

This kind of Dubs team makes all.the non-kd good players real happy. All he has to.do is defend and take open shots. Tonight he went well above that obv. Ever since that jam.on KAT or at least since that game Wiggins has been prime.

63

u/RaginReaganomics Warriors Dec 07 '21

Wiggins is still the player he used to be. He’s just in a system that allows him to min/max his skill set now.

Minnesota needed him to create offense. The Warriors needed him to let the game come to him. He’s a much better fit for the latter.

Some Warriors fans are so hellbent on putting Minnesota down for “culture” or whatever. Yeah the Warriors have an all-time offensive player and DPOY, of course premier role player is gonna succeed here. But make no mistake, I love Wigs, but he is still very much a role player. And for us that’s great

9

u/Pouncyktn 76ers Dec 07 '21

Yeah Wigs was never that bad, he is just not worth his contract. He still isn't but the Warriors have so many good players that it doesn't really matter to them. And it's not like they had to sacrifice something to sign Wiggings unlike the Wolves who lost cap space and flexibility.

13

u/dirtyshits Warriors Dec 07 '21

I think there’s an argument that he’s close to being worth what he’s being paid. He’s not a A1 max player but he’s killing it on both sides as a dub.

11

u/SeaynO Dec 07 '21

Pretty easy to argue that he's worth as much or more than players like Tobias Harris, Porzingis, Murray, Siakim, McCollum, etc.

-3

u/mrtrinket1984 Dec 07 '21

Jamal Murray? Let's be real here Murray is on another tier.

I'd argue Wiggins this season is better than and more valuable than the rest though.

10

u/SeaynO Dec 07 '21

I don't think a guy whose best season was 21/4/5 is really a lot better than Wiggins, especially with the durability difference

5

u/Azee2k San Francisco Warriors Dec 07 '21

If Murray could replicate his bubble performance as Canadian Steph curry he'd absolutely be on another tier. Unfortunately he hasn't, and he's coming off an ACL injury. Wiggins is absolutely on the same tier as Murray. Both fringe all star guys.

u/cooperred Warriors Dec 07 '21

I think there's an argument to be made that because he's more engaged, he's playing somewhat better than Minnesota, albeit still at the same overall basketball level, if that makes sense.

11

u/RaginReaganomics Warriors Dec 07 '21

Agreed. He’s performing much better. But he’s still the same player. Minny needed him to create offense so his shot selection was meh. Now he’s getting more open looks im our motion offense, dribbling less, and dedicating more of his energy to defense.

Not trying to knock his hard work or our coaching staff. Just saying that a lot of small gameplan differences in conjunction with his development,have added up to him being a much greater player.

Compare him with Poole who literally turned into a stud after being one of the worst rooks in the league.

Wigs is the same player with minor tweaks, like Anne Hathaway in the princess diaries going from “Taylor swif in nerd glasses” schoolgirl cute to smokeshow princess, after doing her hair a little different.

Not really sure where I’m going with this. I should rewatch the dark knight rises

u/dirtyshits Warriors Dec 07 '21

You’re absolutely right. He’s still Wiggins that he was. But I will say that there’s a level of expectation and that plays a part. Wiggins is being held accountable on the defensive end and what was his rep before coming here? Offensively it makes sense because he’s just barely hitting his prime but I don’t think people realize what he’s doing defensively.

I think winning cures all and winning makes players unlock every little loot they got.

I love how Steve Kerr reacts the same as I imagine he would when he was still playing

I know Thanksgiving was last week, but I still want it to be known that I am thankful to the Minnesota Timberwolves organization for not drafting Stephen Curry with their 2 picks, trading Andrew Wiggins to the Warriors along with the pick that landed Jonathan Kumminga. Thank you!!

THANK YOU MINNESOTA!!

Man I'm so happy to see Wiggins play with joy and finally get to enjoy winning basketball. I hope this season dispels all the negative perspectives around him and his game.

Just using his hand so you can't read his lips

I really wonder how scary wiggins is in iso in front of you. Most of his plays gets decided with just 1 fake move.

u/Ramzaa_ [OKC] Russell Westbrook Dec 07 '21

Golden state really got this guy as a bust or borderline bust and turned him into a good player in like a year

u/sleepytime88 Trail Blazers Dec 07 '21

Classic Bob Fitzgerald... has every reason to pump up his own super-successful team but can't bring himself to without shitting on less fortunate teams for no reason. He gets under my skin to a ridiculous degree.

u/qaz122 Dec 07 '21

Less fortunate? How many number 1 picks did they have? How many top 10s did they have?

u/onestruenorth2 Timberwolves Dec 07 '21

We literally have one of the worst lottery lucks in the league lmao we only got #1 pick twice despite having the worst record in the league multiple times. KAT was the first time we ever got the #1 pick and Ant the second. Unless you count trading for players like Wiggins which you shouldn’t bc we gave up players like Klove.

I actually remember Wiggins smiling in Minnesota. That was before Thibs, though.

u/jweezy2045 Warriors Dec 07 '21

Timberwolves in very serious shambles

u/pingpong_playa NBA Dec 07 '21

Most Timberwolves fans are happy with him, just weird that some Warriors fans like you are saltier than TWolves fans for some reason.

u/Dense_Resource Dec 07 '21

As a dubs fan for real tho. Hella low-key but mean-spirited.

u/ryeno Dec 07 '21

Best smile in the game
