When the Golden State Warriors clinched their fourth title of the Steve Kerr era with a Game 6 finals win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday, it wasn’t just the culmination of a year-long effort to get back to the mountaintop. It was more like the end of a three-year journey to prove they were silent this team.

After their failure to upend the Toronto Raptors in 2019, Kevin Durant’s big move to Brooklyn and the devastating injuries of Klay Thompson (twice), Steph Curry and James Wiseman, the Dubs had every excuse to sink back into obscurity . Instead, they roared and rampaged their way back to that old pole.

However, the one person who arguably had the most to prove during the final championship run, 19, wasn’t even on the team when the journey began. I’m talking about former general classification number 1 Andrew Wiggins.

After eight years of recording fans and pundits alike, Wiggins has finally revealed he is this guy. With his efforts to bring the trophy back to the Golden State, he has officially made good on the promise that named him “Maple Jordan” in 2014.

So you could forgive the 27-year-old for celebrating the big win a little harder than some of his teammates. And it looks like he did just that.

At this point, some of the Warriors are known to have taken a quick flight to Las Vegas after originally returning from Beantown. Nor did they make the trip to see Cirque du Soleil or tour the Hoover Dam. The 2022 NBA Champions were clearly out to torment Sin City Gold and Blue.

As reported by SFGate, Wiggins rocked the Vegas club scene over the weekend alongside Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole, Damion Lee, Nemanja Bjelica, Draymond Green and more.

However, a picture posted via KRON4’s Jason Dumas to Thompson’s Instagram Story definitely gives the impression that Wiggins outdid himself at the celebration. The snap also went viral in a short space of time, with fans reacting in droves to the acclaimed All-Star.

“Oh my god, he looks so tired.” tweeted one fan. “He can’t keep up with China Klay, no sir.”

“Wiggins need a case of water and $40 worth of Chick Fil A in the morning.” joked another tweeter.

“That’s 8 years of undeserved reputation peeled away.” said a third fan. “He has posterized his old reputation.”

Wiggins may have felt the effects after several days of partying during the dubs’ Vegas outing, but he doesn’t intend to step down from this wild Warriors ride any time soon.

The baller has just a year left on his contract – and many have wondered if the club can continue to pay such an exorbitant price for their fourth man – but Wiggins revealed he wants to stay on during his exit interview on Saturday.

“I’d like to stay here,” Wiggins told reporters. “Being here is first class. The way they treat the players, the way they treat your family, we’re all one big family. I know a lot of places say that, but here their actions show it, so I’d love to stay here.”

The eight-year-old pro averaged 17.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists for the Warriors last season. He will earn $33.6 million next season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
