Video analysis from my heart to yours.
I feel like for this team to really contend next year, Wiggins will have to be better/do more than Barnes did. He's already a better offensive player and he's shown flashes of defensive skill with his quick hands but jury's still out. I'm certainly feeling much better about the potential than I was day of the trade though...
Let’s not forget the max contract! What did they pay Harrison Barnes to stand in the corner
Wiggins seems like he could be more the wing that the Warriors wanted out of Barnes. Unlike HB, Wiggins seems to have a much more usable 1st step to attack closeouts, with maybe a little better handle and vision to get some assists as a secondary ballhandler on the wing.
But jury's still out on whether Wiggins can (or should) be the smallball 4 that HB was.
Strong work Eric! My vote for good mix between video and didactic text. Keep it up. If Wiggins does as well as you do we will be enjoying your writing around game 92 of next year...
Small sample size but Wiggins is a much better offensive player vs Barnes 2013-2016 and significantly faster. Not quite as tall but seems longer and quicker.
