The warriors are in the flow, juggling past, present and future, and James Wiseman has become the focus of a whole lot of questions from the fan base

While Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball, the No. 1 and No. 3 picks in the 2020 NBA Draft, play nearly 30 minutes per game and play through mistakes, the same doesn’t exactly apply to Wiseman, whom the No. 2 Warriors select in the draft This leads to different views among the warriors about how they treated their 19 year old prize

“There is a source of organizational tension in the way they have deployed Wiseman this year,” ESPN’s Ramona Shelbourne said on the latest episode of the Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective podcast “There are some people in the organization that really want them to put James Wiseman out there more Not necessarily with the bank and all that, that’s a separate thing But just get him out more Let him play by mistake, let him play more minutes, heavier Minutes like the other two rookies, although the Warriors are trying to fight for the playoffs

“There is a feeling that the sooner you can bring James Wiseman up to speed, the faster he can learn and grow from his mistakes in the system – with Draymond being his big brother taking care of him on the field off the field The better the franchise goes “

Wiseman started the season as a starter before moving to the bench in late January. He also missed 11 games with a wrist injury

The young center then made a splash during the All-Star hiatus when it missed a COVID-19 test and was punished by coach Steve Kerr, Wiseman was down for the first three quarters of his 26-point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers suspended He played the entire fourth quarter and showed how excited the Warriors are about his abilities by scoring 14 points and scoring seven rebounds in 12 minutes

Wiseman has played 29 games as a rookie and made 17 starts. He averages 208 minutes per game, which is far from how much ball and Edwards play for their respective teams. Ball averages 288 minutes per game and Edwards plays 295

All three rookies are also in different situations.The warriors are 20-20, which is good for the No. Is 9 seeds in the West Balls Charlotte Hornets are 20-18 and the No. 6 seeds in the East, while Edwards’ Minnesota Timberwolves have the worst record in the NBA with 9-30

Shelbourne also noted that the Warriors have always sought to mimic the San Antonio Spurs’ continued success, and Wiseman could be their ticket to that in the long run

“The Spurs have always reinvented themselves,” said Shelbourne “They kept bringing up new young players and it went from David Robinson to Tim Duncan to Tony Parker to Kawhi Leonard. They always had this succession plan and they were very good at executing it. I think that’s what the Warriors are trying to do now.”

“You really believe in James Wiseman, you really do. You believe he will be a future all-star, you believe he will be a future pillar of the franchise”

The Warriors haven’t been too successful with their first round draft picks in recent years, but those usually came at the end of the first round Wiseman is a whole different case He has all the skills to be a superstar with just three college -Being playing. The question is, how are they going to treat him for the rest of his rookie year?
