NBA Twitter reacts to James Wiseman’s impressive performance in preseason opener vs. Wizards

At 3 a.m. PT on Friday, the Golden State Warriors opened up the 2022 NBA preseason with a contest against the Washington Wizards at Saitama Super Arena in Japan. 

While All-Star caliber players like Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Bradley Beal and Andrew Wiggins suited up, it was third-year center James Wiseman who stole the show. 

After missing a chunk of his rookie season and all of his second year in the association due to a knee injury, Wiseman impressed in his return to the court in the preseason opener. The former No. 2 overall pick tallied 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the field with eight boards, an assist and a block in 24 minutes off the bench.

Behind Wiseman, the Warriors sealed a 96-87 victory over the Wizards on Friday to start the preseason. 

Following Wiseman’s impressive performance against the Wizards, the NBA community on Twitter chimed in with a flurry of reactions. Here’s a look at what fans and analysts were saying about Wiseman and the Warriors on Friday.
