Nobody cares about his phony All-Star selection.
he's way more than a decent role player
Is he really? His offense is below average and he still shoots too much. Poor passer and rebounder. His best attribute is being a 6'8 athlete you can throw at star wings and not get embarrassed on D. Which is fine, but not good enough when you're the top prospect in the nation and the #1 overall pick.
If Wiggins were still on the Wolves would this even be a debate? He's getting the Curry bump in efficiency and he still isn't even that good.
Replace Wiggins with the guy he was traded for (Russell) and Golden State doesn’t come close to beating the Celtics. That’s how important Wiggins was that series. His rebounding and defense on Tatum was insanely impactful. Curry has one less ring if he never got Wiggins.
