San Francisco, CA – The Golden State Warriors knew they would have at least one player representing them in this year’s All-Star Game, but on Thursday they found out Stephen Curry would be joined by Andrew Wiggins. It’s the 2014 No. 1 pick’s first-ever appearance in the prestigious game and his head coach Steve Kerr couldn’t be happier for him.

“One of the proudest moments just to see what Wiggs has done since he got here a couple of years go,” Kerr told ClutchPoints. “The journey he has traveled has been rocky at times, and to see how hard he’s worked and to see all the work rewarded, just could not be happier for him.

The Warriors are the third team Wiggins has played for, and there was a time when some fans wanted him traded from this team. The team never gave up on him and now he’s starting in his first All-Star Game.

“The whole organization is glowing right now because of what Wiggs has meant to us,” Kerr said. “But more importantly just the way he carries himself. Just a wonderful guy and he deserves this and we are all thrilled.”
