Fans of the Golden State Warriors have long been expected great things from Andrew Wiggins.
Ever since the player arrived in Golden State, it’s been assumed that he could become one of the most important players on the roster.
It may have taken a while but now he’s living up to the hype in a big way.

Wiggins now leads the Finals with 101 contested shots through the first five games.
That’s 26 shots more than the next player.
This is a sign that Wiggins has really come into his own with Golden State and is a menace on both ends of the court.
The Warriors will need him to keep performing like this for the next two games if they hope to take home the ring.
Wiggins had an amazing game the other night and everyone was taking note.
He scored a team-high 26 points and also picked up a whopping 13 rebounds in a 104-94 victory against the Boston Celtics.
Wiggins assisted his team in some huge ways when they needed him most.
His 26-point evening came during a dry spell for Steph Curry, who ended the game with just 16 points.
Wiggins was able to step up and fill the void left by Curry.
Again and again, Golden State fans have been eager to see Wiggins reach his next level.
This is because he is such a promising player: big and fast and capable of both shooting and blocking and defending.
There is a reason why he was the number one pick in the draft.
When he’s at his best, he doesn’t just create shots – he stops them too.
That can make all the difference for the Warriors and it makes Wiggins a threat in multiple ways.
It may also make him a champion.NEXT: Gary Payton II Has Brought New Energy To The Warriors
