In 17 days, Andrew Wiggins will live his first All-Star Game, and unlike others, he did not even need the votes of the coaches. Holder, he will have less than eight years to reach the heights, and remove his name from the category of “overpriced”. Considered the most consistent Warrior this season, and one of the best two-way players in the NBA, the Canadian has taken a huge weight off himself, and for Steve Kerr, it’s just the beginning.
“I think being named starter gives him more confidence than ever. He’s looked so good since he was named All-Star a week ago.” testifies Steve Kerr. “He shoots super fast, he plays with such ease and confidence and it’s great to see. He gave it his all, he’s been through a lot over the years, a lot of stress, people calling him ‘bum’ and all that. He just put his head down, worked and he deserves it. He’s playing hard right now. “
The journalist asks him if Wiggins will be more difficult to coach at the same time, and Kerr laughs: “He won’t stop saying he’s good!” In fact, Andrew is just the most humble and modest person.”
More seriously, a confident Wiggins is an easy Wiggins in his game, all in control. “I think it’s just the fluidity of his game, there’s no indecision. When unmarked, he rises and shoots, without hesitation. He is aggressive in defense. He just has a very cool self-confidence and it’s been nice to see him blossom over the last week. “
