IS ANDREW WIGGINS DESERVING OF AN ALL-STAR STARTING POSITION?

Is Andrew Wiggins having a good year? Absolutely. He's backed up his 2020 season which saw his efficiency drastically improve, which is the typical Warriors bump. This year Wiggins is at 18/4/2 on 48/40% splits with 2.2 3PM on one of the best teams in the league.

It's not crazy to think he was having an All Star caliber first half. But no, he's not one of the 5 best players in the Western Conference. What you see here is a combination of stupid position requirements and fan voting. This is why nobody should ever allow the casual NBA fan to have anything to do with the official results of anything. Voting Andrew Wiggins in as an All Star starter is all you need to see. And I mean this with no disrespect to Wiggins. It's awesome that he has improved enough to even be in this position. Given his career arc, it's very cool he's going to be an All Star. But you can't tell me he should be in there over guys like Luka, Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Donovan Mitchell, KAT, etc. I don't think Wiggins should even be considered as a starter.
