The best perimeter defender will always take wiggs because our other wings are all non threats.
When wiggs is given the ball to facilitate like he does in the oklahoma game, he gets engaged and it also forces the opposing player to work that much harder to defend him.
When wiggs is used as the floor spacer, hes often hovering around the 3 pt line waiting for kick out which he will then shoot it or take a couple of dribbles to take a long 2. This also gives the opposing defender to kind of lay back and play 2 while conserving energy.
I dont think its as much about the position as it is his role in the offense.
I think playing him as the spot up guy was a bad idea and basically feeds his nature to ball watch. Flip figured out. Smitch figured it out. Thibs was kind of figuring it out, then the jimmy trade happened. And that basically sums up his last 2 years.
Which is what I said and then you tried to pull out a specific game/lineup to discredit me that you happened to be wrong about. Teams are not scared to put smaller guys on Covington because he has very little face up or post up offense, he is a catch and shoot guy, which is a threat every team needs but is easier to defend then a guy that can go get his own shot.
Thanks for attributing something to me that I didn't say. Yes I was wrong about who was guarding Wiggins, my bad. Sorry I'm not 100% perfect on all of my facts like you apparently are.
