Andrew Wiggins made headlines on Monday night after he led the Golden State Warriors to a 104-94 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Dubs were on the brink of a monumental collapse after the Celtics mounted a huge comeback in the third quarter. For his part, however, Wiggins made sure that the Warriors wouldn’t lose Game 5 in their own home floor.
After his 26-point, 13-rebound performance, Wiggins talked about the Warriors’ culture and how they have put him in a position to be the best player he can be:
“It’s a winning culture,” Wiggins said of the Warriors, via NBA on Twitter. “They’ve won before. They’ve dominated the NBA. When I got here they put you in a position to succeed. They always bring out the best in you. They want the best for you. Supportive. It’s been good.”
“Being here is just such a winning culture… they put you in position to succeed.”

You also can’t forget that Wiggins was named an All-Star for the first time in his career this season — as a starter, no less. Right now, he’s proven to be a key piece for a star-studded Warriors side as they look to claim their fourth championship in the past eight years.
