Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors have one of the best all-around teams in the NBA. Their starting lineup alone has four different players who have been All-Stars.
Andrew Wiggins was the latest player from the Warriors to become an All-Star this year. Wiggins has become a very solid player for the Warriors on both ends of the court. But Stephen Curry and the Warriors want to see more from Wiggins.
Stephen Curry spoke about Andrew Wiggins recently. Curry noted that he and the rest of the Warriors players want to see Andrew Wiggins be flashier, dunking on players, yelling during games, and even getting a technical foul.
Wiggins is a technically sound player and focuses on performing well rather than exhibiting his flash. Wiggins responded by saying you never know what could happen:
Steph Curry said they want Andrew Wiggins to dunk on people & yell and just "get a tech one time."
Wiggins response to this: “Who knows. You never know what could happen.”
Stephen Curry was clearly having fun with Wiggins, pointing to him, not displaying a lot of emotion while playing and remaining stoic on the court. Wiggins is extremely proficient on the court, but makes sure that he keeps his emotions in check.
Wiggins also benefits from being the third option offensively on the court. With Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson being trusted to score most of the points for the Warriors, Wiggins can focus on his own movement on the court and only take good chances and shots on the court.
As far as defense, Wiggins is the second-best defender on the Warriors behind Draymond Green.
He can be trusted to try and lock up opposing players well enough and restrict them as best possible. Wiggins has proven to be a reliable player for the Warriors during this playoff run.
