Golden State Warriors
Q. Andrew, you've played a lot of minutes early in your career and a lot of reasons to want to make a deep playoff run but how much were you looking forward to putting your conditioning to the test in this type of run with a team that could help you get this far and how do you feel now as you're going through it?
ANDREW WIGGINS: I feel like one thing -- I always do summer workouts. It's a lot of conditioning just to prepare myself for the season but right now I feel great. Just excited to play.
Q. You come from a basketball family. What has this run been like for your family?
ANDREW WIGGINS: It's been great. You know, it's been great. They have been to almost every game in the playoffs but it's been amazing to be able to share this experience with them.
Q. Do you talk to your dad about games? Do you talk about performances and stuff at all?
ANDREW WIGGINS: We talk about the games and he just helps me, like if he sees anything, what I need to do, what I can do better stuff like that.
Q. Bob Myers was reminding Draymond how special it is that Klay, Steph and Draymond all sat together and kind of embrace this last flight. That last flight, have you had a moment to soak it in as well?
ANDREW WIGGINS: I feel like every day being here has just been, you're trying to soak it up and embracing it. It's the biggest stage. Nothing is bigger than this. So I've been excited the whole time I've been here. I've been happy. I'm embracing it. I'm not taking it for granted. It's a once-a-lifetime opportunity for a lot of people. A lot of people don't get a chance to experience this.
Q. Probably the first couple years of your career your team wasn't on TV a ton, but we knew you, but the casual fan didn't see you play a lot. Now with this big audience, what does it mean with so many people watching and you're playing some of your best basketball?
ANDREW WIGGINS: It's always great being able to showcase what you can do, what you worked for. So I'm just happy to be able to be here on the biggest stage and help my team win.
