The Golden State Warriors’ 2022 NBA Finals win announced two things to the basketball world. One: Stephen Curry still is THAT guy for this team. And two: the Dubs are going to be scary for a long time. Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins came up huge for the Warriors during their Finals run, chipping in during key moments throughout the series.
During the Warriors’ post-game celebration, Jordan Poole went live on IG to stream their celebration. A brief interaction with Andrew Wiggins turned into a hilarious and heartwarming moment between the two young Dubs stars. (via ClutchPoints)
Jordan Poole: "Where we going?"
Andrew Wiggins: "I'm going toooooo… Maf*ckin Spain."
JP: "What? What, yes! Yes, we can do that! You a world champion… And you bout to get a BAG!"
AW: "YOU about to get a bag!"

Wiggins perfectly summed up the Warriors’ off-season goals for 2022: get him and Poole PAID. Both men were absolutely vital to their championship in their own ways. Wiggins became the spiritual successor to Andre Iguodala, hounding opposing players on defense while providing a scoring jolt. Meanwhile, Poole ran the show from the bench, showing shades of Stephen Curry in his excursions on the court.
The two men’s brilliant debuts in the playoffs has led to an interesting question for Warriors fans: which one of them will get paid? Both are important to the team, but the salary cap means that one of them could be let go at some point. Clearly, though, it seems like both Poole and Wiggins want each other to get paid the big bucks.
The Warriors are now on top of the NBA world after this historic Finals win against the Celtics. Could this be the start of the new GSW dynasty? If they keep all their young guns… it very well could be.
