NBA: Wiggins All-Star call one of Kerr's 'proudest moments'

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says Andrew Wiggins earning a starting spot in the 2022 NBA All-Star Game is one of his career highlights.

Golden State are 5/1 to win the NBA Championship outright and Wiggins is 250/1 to win the Most Improved Player award. You can follow the NBA action via our Sports Live Streaming platform.

Kerr revels in Wiggins' achievement

Wiggins was selected with the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers but then joined Minnesota Timberwolves, as part of the deal that saw Kevin Love move to Cleveland.

The Canadian won the Rookie of the Year award in 2015 but his career had stalled prior to his arrival at Golden State in February 2020 and this will be his first appearance in an All-Star game, either as a starter or a reserve.

Kerr hails Wiggins character

Wiggins, 26, has been named as one of the starters from the West Pool alongside teammate Stephen Curry, Memphis guard Ja Morant, reigning MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

"One of the proudest moments I've had as a coach just to see what Wiggs has done since he got here a couple of years ago," said Kerr, via NBC Sports.

"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 any happier for him. The whole organization is glowing right now because of what Wiggs has meant to us, but more importantly, just the way he carries himself every day. 

"Just a wonderful guy and he deserves this and we are all thrilled for him."
