Andrew Wiggins Opens Up On Adjusting To Playing With Both Klay Thompson And Stephen Curry: "I'm Still Getting The Shots I Want To Get. I'm Still Getting The Touches."

Andrew Wiggins has been the No. 2 offensive option for the Golden State Warriors all season, and he is currently averaging 18.5 PPG while shooting a blistering 42.3% from beyond the arc. He's definitely having one of his most efficient seasons to date.

With Klay Thompson's return, Andrew Wiggins has certainly had to adjust on the offensive end, as Thompson commands a decent amount of usage. With that being said, it seems as though Wiggins doesn't see that as much of a problem. He has recently revealed that he's "still getting the shots" and "still getting the touches" he wants while adding that Klay Thompson makes the Warriors "more dangerous".

"I feel like I'm still getting the shots I want to get. I'm still getting the touches. Now, we have more weapons. We added another big weapon, with Klay in the starting lineup. It makes us that more dangerous."

There is no doubt that Andrew Wiggins is right in saying Klay Thompson makes the Warriors more dangerous. Klay Thompson gives the Golden State Warriors another scorer who can take over on any given night. While his play has been subpar at times, he definitely looks recovered from the injury and is moving well on the court. Once Klay Thompson finds a rhythm the Warriors' offense will be difficult to contain. 

Andrew Wiggins himself has been considered in All-Star talks, and there's no question that his stellar two-way play has put everyone on notice. Hopefully, he will be able to continue playing on that level going forward, and if he does, he has a good shot at being an All-Star.

The Golden State Warriors have become a contender once again, and it's about time the world sees them back in the playoffs. We'll see if they are able to win the 2021-22 championship, and they definitely have a shot to go all the way.
