VIDEO: Warriors’ Andrew Wiggins in his bag with nasty Allen Iverson double crossover
Golden State Warriors swingman Andrew Wiggins just showcased how big of an influence Allen Iverson had in his game. Against the Houston Rockets at Chase Center on Saturday, Wig found himself in a mismatch at the top of the key against Rockets big Kelly Olynyk.
The 26-year-old Canadian took this as an invitation to flaunt his underrated handles, as he made the 6-foot-11 center dance with AI’s signature double-crossover move. After breaking Olynyk’s ankles, Wiggins rose up for the best weapon on his arsenal, a picture-perfect perimeter jumper that hit nothing but the net.
Here’s the replay of Canadian on Canadian crime perpetuated by Wiggins on Olynyk.

Andrew Wiggins has assumed the role of the second-best player in that Dubs line-up this season. Despite the team’s struggles, the 6-foot-7 swingman continues to be a consistent two-way player for the team, tallying 17.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 block prior to Saturday’s match.
Stephen Curry’s influence has definitely rubbed off on him since he’s also averaging a career-best 38.5 percent shooting clip from beyond the arc. That double crossover move he just pulled off likely even got the approval of the two-time NBA MVP, who is also quite the magician with the ball himself.
