Andrew Wiggins has finally done it. After years of unfulfilled potential, the Canadian phenom has put it all together this season. As a result, he made the NBA All-Star Team as a starter, joining Stephen Curry as the Golden State Warriors players to make it in so far.
Naturally, everyone was happy for him, even his former Timberwolves teammates. Karl-Anthony Towns, who was Andrew Wiggins' teammate in Minnesota, was happy for the Warriors star's selection into the All-Star Game. He had a pretty succinct response, saying: (via Marc J. Spears)
Wiggins making the All-Star Game as a starter this season has been a rather controversial topic since it was announced. The NBA's voting system involves the Twitter fanbase, and a certain Korean pop-star endorsing the Warriors forward seems to have generated a lot of traction for his selection. Still, Dubs fans are more than aware that Wiggins deserves an All-Star spot this season, whether as a reserve or a starter.
Towns was one of the frontcourt members that Wiggins edged out in the starter selection. The Timberwolves center has been on a tear this season, propelling Minnesota into a potential playoff spot. Unfortunately, he missed out on the selection for the starting roster. Considering his play, though, Towns will more than likely join the Warriors forward in the All-Star game as a reserve.
Things are starting to look up for the Warriors. With Draymond Green earning a role with the TNT crew, Klay Thompson rounding back into form, and Curry and Wiggins being selected to the ASG, there's a lot of individual accolades for the team. Fans are hoping that this success can translate into a championship this season.
