he works with skills coach Reid Ouse in Minesota, the previous year he worked with Chris Johnson and he improved his game especially handles.
I don't know much about Reid Ouse

The audio suggests that he made 21 in a row earlier in the week, in a session where he made 29 out of 30 overall. Can’t complain about that.

I’m not a fan of the fact that he’s turned a little sideways to the hoop while shooting them..... but if they go in, it’s hard to argue with success.
If I don't have anything funny to say, can I still have a signature?

Still think his biggest barrier is going to be aggressiveness. Yes, he'll be a 3rd option but he still has to take the opportunities that come his way. Even as the top guy in the few games he played for us I thought he could have been more aggressive. Dray and Andre used to flip out when the team worked an open shot for McCaw only for him to pass it up and I see a little of that in Wiggins game. Will it get better or worse playing with Steph and Klay? I'm not sure.

Some shooting coaches teach that turn. They feel it makes aligning the shoulder easier and more consistent for many shooters.

I prefer the Steph and Klay square up where only one foot is slightly in front of the other.

Im not counting the Steph Curry en fuego version where he could be doing the splits and still drain a 3.

But to me, especially in a catch and shoot situation, you should be squared up.

It does seem likely that playing with a bunch of future hall of famers is going to raise Wiggins' game, inevitable really. I'm still not entirely sold on him being worth his contract, but excited to see what he can do after escaping from a bad franchise. Pretty sure he can be an asset on the offensive end, it's the defense I want to see.

Somebody on this thread is not sure if playing with Steph, Draymond and Klay will raise his game?

I clicked on this thread with the intent of seeing another Dragan Bender remark. You let me down Sid.

I'm all in on Wiggins, have high hopes for him next season. The extra shooting touch from deep would be gravy, but it's his defence and movement off the ball on offence will be watching the most.

Ona Bender will crush it next season


You think Steph and Klay will be ok with being role players ?

Well he has been a 20+ point scorer for most of his career, so I don't see a problem with him taking shots.

In the very least, playing with us will raise his league perception. He will raise his trade value just by being a positive on a winning team.
