Draymond Green didn't hold back on how highly he regards Warriors rookie James Wiseman.
Green, who has been Wiseman's mentor on and off the court early in the rookie's pro career, took to Twitter on Wednesday night, saying Wiseman is a "f--king stud."
Wiseman showed off all his skills against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the team who passed him up with the top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, in a 123-111 win. The 19-year-old center scored a career-high 25 points in 24 minutes off the bench. He blocked shots and threw down hammer dunks.
He even went 3-for-3 from beyond the arc and was a plus-14 in plus-minus.
Coach Steve Kerr moved Wiseman to the bench in the Warriors' last two games, two wins over the T-Wolves. The young center responded perfectly, averaging 19.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in the two wins. His spot on the bench is far from permanent, too.
There's a real chance Wiseman could be the Warriors' starting center Thursday night against Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns.
Wiseman now is averaging 12.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while averaging 21.3 minutes per game, 18 games into his Warriors career. The teenager continues to get better and better, and Green is loving every second of it.
