Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews Steph jokes that the team was so excited about Wiggins’ All-Star selection that it took Draymond about 30 minutes to realize he hadn’t congratulated Steph yet. – 1:26 AM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine Anthony Edwards on Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson:
“I was just telling them., it was easier to guard them when it’s just Steph. Get the ball out his hands, double him. But now you double him and it’s swing-swing to Klay Thompson. Pick your poison. That’s hard to guard, man.” – 1:23 AM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Andrew Wiggins shared how he found out he made the All-Star team.
“It was mind-blowing. I was taking my little pregame nap, and then my girl and my daughter woke me up and said you’re a starter! you’re a starter! I thought I was dreaming for a second.” – 1:18 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron Andrew Wiggins on having his first All-Star Game in Cleveland, which drafted him No. 1 overall back in the day: “Full circle. No better place to have my first All-Star than where it all started.” – 1:10 AM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews Andrew Wiggins says he found out that he was an All-Star starter by getting woken up from his nap by his daughter.
” ‘You’re a starter! You’re a starter!’ I thought I was dreaming for a second.” – 1:08 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron Andrew Wiggins on getting named an All-Star starter: “It was mind-blowing. I was taking my pregame nap. My girl woke me up and said, ‘You’re a starter! You’re a starter!’ I thought I was dreaming for a second.” – 1:04 AM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski KAT on Wiggins getting All-Star: “My vote was for him. … We went to wars together out there. I just want to see him see the fruits of his labor.” – 12:46 AM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA Karl-Anthony Towns on Andrew Wiggins making the All Star team as a starter:
“I think it’s beautiful.”
KAT said he casted his vote for Wiggins as an All Star starter. – 12:44 AM
Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears “That’s beautiful,” said Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns about his former teammate Andrew Wiggins becoming a West All-Star. – 12:44 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron After the final buzzer sounded on the Warriors’ 124-115 win over the Mavericks, at least a half-dozen Timberwolves players took turns embracing Andrew Wiggins at mid-court. On the night he was named an All-Star starter, Wiggins had 19 points on 7-for-12 shooting (5-for-8 from 3). – 12:29 AM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Final: Warriors 124, Timberwolves 115
-21/36 beyond the arc
-Curry 29, most rhythmic shooting in many weeks
-Thompson a season-23, Wiggins and Poole 19 each
-Karl-Anthony Towns 23 in first half, 8 in the second largely thanks to aggressive double-teaming – 12:28 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe Curry finished 6-for-10 from 3. It’s the first time he’s made more than half his threes in a game since Dec. 23 against Memphis in Chase Center – 12:26 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors beat Minnesota. That’s a 5-1 start to a seven-game homestand that closes with Brooklyn on Saturday. Record: 36-13. Efficient scoring balance tonight.
-Curry: 29 on 10/20 FG
-Klay: 23 on 9/16 FG
-Wiggins: 19 on 7/13 FG
-Poole: 19 on 5/10 FG – 12:26 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors had been the NBA’s second worst 3-point shooting team the past 12 games. They’re 16/27 from 3 through three quarters tonight.
Curry: 4/6
Klay: 4/8
Wiggins: 4/6 – 11:55 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Warriors 89, Timberwolves 78, 2:11 Q3
-Thompson 18, Curry 17, Poole/Wiggins 16 each. The scoring balance the Warriors are seeking – 11:47 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Curry/Thompson/Wiggins 11/18 from tonight
Curry 3/5
Thompson 4/8
Wiggins 4/5
Warriors open second half with 15-4 run, take 72-65 lead 8:39 of the third – 11:30 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron END OF Q1: Game tied at 29-29. Nice start from Wiggins, who has eight early points. Has to be kind of nice for him playing his old team on the night he was named an All-Star starter. – 10:35 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe That dime by Curry to Thompson — left hand, off the dribble, across his body and against his momentum — is exactly why he gets in trouble with his left-handed passes lol – 10:20 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie Andrew Wiggins has done a great job reframing the narrative of his career in Golden State. Personally, I think I’m just happy for him getting recognized more than upset about how/why he got there. – 9:38 PM
David MacKay @DavidMacKayNBA Usually when someone says something like, “Can you believe X movie came out in Y year?” it doesn’t get me, but damn if this being Andrew Wiggins’ eighth season doesn’t make the passage of time feel blindingly fast. – 9:37 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA My @PrizePicks for Wolves-Warriors…
KAT over 22.5 points
– Wiggins just made the AS team, national TV, Looney single coverage
Wiggins over 16.5 points + over 2 FTs made

McDaniels under 8.5 pts

Vando over 1.5 asts

DLo over 6.5 asts

Curry over 5.0 FTs made
– – 9:26 PM
Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA Very happy for Andrew Wiggins. Whether you think he belongs as an all star starter or not (I think he’s borderline), he’s had a great season and has emerged from a ton of criticism for the balance of his career to being a vital player on a championship contender – 9:06 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds The fan vote, in order of the top 10: LeBron, Steph, Durant, Giannis, Jokic, DeMar, Embiid, Ja, Wiggins, Paul George. – 9:02 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon Luka Doncic did not receive any media votes to be an All-Star starter. (I don’t have an official vote but agree with the selections of Steph Curry and Ja Morant.) – 8:44 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson Whoa. Andrew WIggins finished 5th in player voting for the West frontcourt. He got 46.
Wiggins also had FOUR (4) media votes. That was the reason he got in. Finished 6th in that vote instead of 8th or 9th. – 8:28 PM
Ben Golliver @BenGolliver Media votes for Western Conference’s third All-Star Game frontcourt starting spot
– Rudy Gobert: 65
– Draymond Green: 20
– Andrew Wiggins: 4 – 8:24 PM
Ben Golliver @BenGolliver Utah’s Rudy Gobert & Golden State’s Draymond Green both finished above Andrew Wiggins in the media & player votes for the West’s third frontcourt starting spot, but missed out because Wiggins carried the fan vote. PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson The finishing in the fan vote (50%), player vote (25%) and media vote (25%) for the top-5 in the West backcourt.
1. Stephen Curry: 1st, 1st, 1st
2. Ja Morant: 2nd, 2nd, 2nd
T-3. Luka Doncic: 3rd, 4th, 7th
T-3. Devin Booker: 5th, 3rd, 4th
5. Chris Paul: 7th, 5th, 3rd – 8:21 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Paul George ranked 8th among players, 4th among fans, and 7th among media in West frontcourt.
Overall, finished behind James, Jokic, Wiggins, and Draymond Green. – 8:19 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Warriors coach Steve Kerr says seeing Andrew Wiggins reach All-Star status is one of his ‘proudest moments’ as a coach. – 8:19 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron Steve Kerr on Andrew Wiggins being named an All-Star starter: “Man, one of the proudest moments I’ve had as a coach, just to see what Wiggs has done since he got here. … I just could not be any happier for him. The whole organization is just glowing right now.” – 8:18 PM
Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones Folks got jokes about Wiggins being a starter in the All-Star Game. Deezam. Besides swapping him out for Draymond, who else should get that spot? – 8:09 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers Whether or not Andrew Wiggins truly deserves All-Star status, his rebirth as an NBA player is a fantastic story, so I don’t really care. AK – 8:06 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar The difference between an All Star snub and an All Star starter:
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 2021
23.7 points
4.7 rebounds
5.9 assists
41.8 3PT%
50.8 FG%
Not Steph Curry’s teammate
Andrew Wiggins 2022
18.1 points
4.2 rebounds
2.0 assists
40.4 3PT%
48.1 FG%
Steph Curry’s teammate – 7:50 PM
David Locke @DLocke09 The Andrew Wiggins starter selection makes the next 7 West all-stars really clear
Chris Paul
Devin Booker
Draymond Green
Donovan Mitchell
Rudy Gobert
Paul George
Luka Doncic
Losers are Ayton, any of the 3 Timberwolves or Shai or DeJounte all of whom I have over Wiggins – 7:45 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS With Wiggins’ former team facing Warriors at Chase Center tonight, there’s no chance of trolling when he is announced (extra loud as an All-Star) in the starting lineup. Right? – 7:38 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix Criticism of Wiggins starting — and for the record, I voted for Gobert — ignores the fact that Golden State has unlocked Wiggins as a high level scorer/defender. He’s no longer just a big, tradable contract — he’s a 26-year old part of the Warriors core – 7:27 PM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC It’s a guard’s game now … three frontcourt players is for the birds. Devin Booker, Donovan Mitchell and Luka Doncic should’ve got that starting spot over Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins is hooping, but starter? No bueno. – 7:22 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson The broken part of this formula that Wiggins (I assume) got in off is that if you get zero media votes, you technically still get 6th or whatever if only 5 other guys got votes. A top 3/4 fan vote spot can get you far. I’m assuming that’s what happened. – 7:22 PM
David Morrow @_DavidMorrow Very happy DeMar is an All-Star starter, but the incongruity of allowing him to be a backcourt player but having Wiggins start the ASG due to lack of positional flexibility is maddening. Abolish position requirements in the All-Star Game. – 7:22 PM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt My differences in All-Star starters:
I had Rudy Gobert instead of Andrew Wiggins, and Jrue Holiday instead of Trae Young. – 7:21 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM My All-Star starters media ballot sent in last week was:
LeBron James
Draymond Green
Nikola Jokic
Steph Curry
Ja Morant
Kevin Durant
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Joel Embiid
Trae Young
DeMar DeRozan – 7:20 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar If Andrew Wiggins is a real life All Star starter, then nobody can ever argue again with Thunder fans when they call Shai Gilgeous-Alexander an All Star talent. – 7:20 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS The worst part of the Wiggins selection is that every time he has a big playoff game, that fanbase is going to try to use it to justify him starting the freaking All-Star Game. – 7:19 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns were literally on the same team. Recently. We know which one of them is better. That alone makes this stupid even before we factor Rudy Gobert into the equation. – 7:18 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Andrew Wiggins takes the West frontcourt starting All-Star spot many expected to go to Rudy Gobert. Fan voting accounts for 50 percent. Wiggins was boosted there. Gobert didn’t make up necessary ground in player/media (other 50 percent) voting. – 7:17 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Absence of Kawhi and PG opens door for Wiggins, who is shooting 40.4 pct from 3, playing good to excellent defense, delivering a few highlights for a Warriors team with the second-best record in the NBA – 7:17 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13 The Cavaliers always knew they were drafting a future All-Star starter when they took Andrew Wiggins.
Shout out to the city of Cleveland which now gets to cheer on its own No. 1 overall pick on its home floor in the All-Star game. – 7:17 PM
Bill Reiter @sportsreiter Here’s how I voted for the NBA All-Star Game:
G: Steph Curry
G: Ja
F: Draymond
F: LeBron
F: Jokic
G: Trae
G: Derozan
F: Embiid
F: Giannis
F: Durant
And yes: time to end fan voting – 7:16 PM
Chris Herrington @ChrisHerrington Talked about this on radio this morning: Wondered if there’d be enough media/player consensus around one alternative to overcome the fan vote for Wiggins. – 7:16 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS 2022 NBA All-Star starters:
EAST: DeMar DeRozan, Trae Young, Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo
WEST: Stephen Curry, Ja Morant, LeBron James, Nikola Jokic, Andrew Wiggins – 7:15 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko Luka Doncic did not make the All-Star starters for the Western Conference. Ja Morqnt starts with Steph Curry. The reserves are announced on February 3 – 7:15 PM
NBA Math @NBA_Math Western Conference All-Star starter ranks in our RPR MVP Predictor, which factors in team success and individual excellence:
Nikola Jokic: No. 1
LeBron James: No. 3
Stephen Curry: No. 6
Ja Morant: No. 14 (which, subjectively, is too low)
Andrew Wiggins: No. 33 – 7:14 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 Results are in. Durant, Embiid, Giannis, DeRozan and Young are all-star starters from the East. LeBron, Jokic, Wiggins, Curry and Morant from the West.
As expected, the all-star fate of Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam is in the hands of the head coaches, who vote in the reserves – 7:14 PM
Ben Golliver @BenGolliver 2022 NBA All-Star Game starters
Western Conference
Captain: LeBron James
– Stephen Curry
– Nikola Jokic
– Ja Morant
– Andrew Wiggins
Eastern Conference
Captain: Kevin Durant
– Giannis Antetokounmpo
– DeMar DeRozan
– Joel Embiid
– Trae Young PM

Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls Remember the All Star Game is an exhibition game and it’s for the fans…so be happy for Andrew Wiggins and stop the hate. – 7:12 PM
Baxter Holmes @Baxter Andrew Wiggins, the 2014 No. 1 overall pick, has been named to the All-Star team for the first time in his career. It was a goal that he mentioned when we sat down earlier this season to discuss his journey to the Warriors:…7:11 PM
James Boyd @RomeovilleKid Lol Andrew Wiggins went from refusing to get vaccinated, folded and got it (right decision) and then became an All-Star starter. 😂😂 – 7:11 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS Andrew Wiggins is starting an All-Star Game before C.J. McCollum even appears in one. End fan voting. – 7:10 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger I had 11 West players I felt good about being on the All-Star team. In a roundabout way, Wiggins removes a problem. Naming the seven subs should be easy now. – 7:10 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba Just landed in memphis and Andrew Wiggins is an all star starter? The jet lag ain’t getting to me?
(And I ask this question believing Wiggins should be an all star this season as a reserve) – 7:10 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS West All-Star Game starters:
Backcourt: Stephen Curry and Ja Morant
Frontcourt: Andrew Wiggins, LeBron James, Nikola Jokic. – 7:09 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Andrew Wiggins is an All-Star starter. Warriors now likely to get three All-Stars. Steph Curry also a starter, Draymond Green a likely reserve. – 7:09 PM
Chris Haynes @ChrisBHaynes Western Conference 2022 All-Star starters are captain LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic, Ja Morant and Andrew Wiggins. – 7:08 PM
Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST Andrew Wiggins has shot an eFG% of 68% on unguarded spot up jumpers, 72% on cuts, and 77% in transition while ranking 61st in the #NBA in possessions per game this season. – 7:08 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad Ja Morant voted an All-Star starter, along with Steph Curry, over Mavs’ Luka Doncic. Doncic a sure bet to make the team as a coaches’ selection. – 7:08 PM
Kellan Olson @KellanOlson No Devin Booker or Chris Paul in the starting lineup for the Western Conference. It’s Stephen Curry and Ja Morant in the backcourt.
Reserves announced next Thursday. – 7:07 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM LeBron James, Nikola Jokic, Andrew Wiggins, Stephen Curry and Ja Morant are the All-Stars from the Western Conference announced. – 7:07 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050 Andrew Wiggins becomes the 3rd Canadian to make an NBA All-Star Game, joining Steve Nash and Jamaal Magloire. – 7:06 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Andrew Wiggins edges out Paul George for the West frontcourt starter spot. Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic and 19-year NBA veteran LeBron James get the other two starting spots in West frontcourt. – 7:05 PM
Jon Hamm @JonMHamm I could watch TV to see Andrew Wiggins announced as an All-Star or I could just see it on Twitter in a moment. – 7:02 PM
Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob My imaginary NBA All-Star starters vote:
Darius Garland
Fred VanVleet
DeMar DeRozan
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Joel Embiid
Steph Curry
Ja Morant
LeBron James
Nikola Jokic
Rudy Gobert
*IMO the logical solution with no KD is to slide DeMar up to the FC where he belongs. – 6:38 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick Sixers health tidbits from Doc Rivers:
-Seth Curry (left ankle) probably couldn’t have played even if this was a playoff game. Will see where he’s at before next game.
-There’s been discussion about a rest night for Joel Embiid, who’s pushed back against that a few times – 5:59 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Doc Rivers says Seth Curry has some ways to go. He said even if today was a playoff game, he’s not sure if he could’ve played. He’s still dealing with left ankle soreness. #Sixers5:55 PM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba Otto Porter Jr. talked about the Warriors trying to get back to the team they’ve been most of the season.
“Since that buzzer-beater Steph (Curry) hit, we’re trying to find ways to get our mojo back and get our legs up under us and play the Warriors way.” – 2:16 PM
