Warriors’ superstar Klay Thompson did not hold in his praise for his teammate Andrew Wiggins, who is having one of the best seasons of his career.

Thompson has missed back-to-back seasons due to catastrophic injuries. However, the three-time champion is scheduled for a return around Christmas this year.

Though not an elite shooter like Thompson, Wiggins has done a decent job of filling in for the Warriors guard. Thompson recently said Wiggins deserves to be an All-Star this season.

The former Wolves player is averaging 18.5 points and 4.4 rebounds. Wiggins is shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from the 3-point line. He recently hit a career-high eight threes against the Orlando Magic.
