Wiggins responds to viral Warriors photo of him looking buff


The Warriors on Wednesday afternoon posted a picture to their official Twitter account that got people talking about Andrew Wiggins' physique.

Plain and simple, the 25-year-old looked buffer.

Wiggins was asked about the photo during a Thursday afternoon conference call with reporters.

"I put on a couple pounds of muscle," he said. "Just a couple pounds. Just a few. I definitely feel stronger. I feel fast. I feel good.

"Coming into the season, I feel the best I've ever felt."

The Warriors acquired Wiggins from the Minnesota Timberwolves just before last season's NBA trade deadline.

The No. 1 overall pick from the 2014 NBA Draft averaged 19.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.4 blocks over 12 games with Golden State, while shooting 45.7 percent overall and 34 percent from deep.

He has been a small forward throughout his career, but probably will play some "four" this season.

Did he bulk up during the offseason to prepare himself for that?

"Getting stronger is what I wanted to do," he said. "I feel like I've been pretty good guarding bigger players in my career. I don't see it as something I can't do."
