Hours before the Warriors’ Thursday night game against the Timberwolves, forward Andrew Wiggins was notified of his selection as a starter as the Inside the NBA team announced the NBA starters for the All-Star Game.

He was one of three starting forwards elected alongside LeBron James and reigning MVP Nikola Jokic. Ja Morant and Wiggins teammate Stephen Curry were also named to the Western Conference team.

The No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft is the third Canadian to be named an All-Star and the first since 2012 when Steve Nash made his eighth and final All-Star appearance.

His pure joy over the achievement can be seen in the heartwarming video posted by the Warriors preview.

In 45 games this season, he’s averaged 18.1 points on a career-high shooting efficiency of 48.3% from the field and 41.2% on 3-pointers, where he’s a career-high 2 .2 3 points per game.

In the game, Wiggins scored 19 including five 3-pointers as the Warriors beat the Timberwolves 124-115 and extended their league home record to 23-4.

After the match, he shared a moment with his former teammate Karl-Anthony Towns.

“It means a lot,” Wiggins said of the post-game All-Star Draft. “I worked hard in different situations and found a home here, something that works.”

“Nothing but love,” Wiggins shares his teammates’ reactions. “As soon as I got here, in the game, all this time, I’m sure when I go down to the locker room they’ll give me more love. So that’s a special feeling.”
