Steve Kerr On Andrew Wiggins: "He's Playing At A Really High Level."

Andrew Wiggins

Andrew Wiggins was the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft class, and there is no doubt that he has endured a lot of criticism over the course of his career. He wasn't the generational superstar that people thought he was going to become.

However, just because a player isn't a superstar, doesn't mean that they are a bad player. During his time with the Golden State Warriors, Andrew Wiggins became a great two-way player, providing solid contributions on both ends. He plays perimeter defense on the best player every night for the Warriors while chipping in around 19 points a game, and he's been key to their 20-4 record.

Steve Kerr has recently praised Andrew Wiggins, claiming that the forward is "playing at a really high level". Andrew Wiggins has most recently delivered a 28 point performance against the Orlando Magic.

I think he’s really enjoying himself here… It’s just been a good fit and he’s playing at a really high level.

I don't think it's possible to not like Andrew Wiggins. He's such a nice human being, pleasant person to be around. His teammates like him. He's so coachable, whatever you ask of him, he does it.

There is no doubt that Andrew Wiggins has been a good fit for the Golden State Warriors, and that he's been one of the main reasons that they have been as good as they are this season. Joe Lacob even claimed that the D'Angelo Russell-Andrew Wiggins swap was the best trade that the Warriors have ever done.

The Warriors have looked mostly unstoppable this season, and we'll see whether that continues. Hopefully, they are able to keep up their dynamic play on both ends. For that, Andrew Wiggins keeps performing consistently on both ends, and he has done that thus far this season.
