Despite averaging just 18 points, four rebounds and two assists per game, Andrew Wiggins has been named an All-Star starter.
Due to the NBA only allowing two guards into each starting lineup alongside three front court players, Wiggins will be starting ahead of far superior Western Conference players like Devin Booker, Luka Doncic, Donovan Mitchell and Chris Paul.
Here’s how the NBA world is reacting to the news:
Andrew Wiggins not even top 30 nba player but he is starting in a all star game aight
