The 2021/2022 NBA season is now over, with Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors defeating the Boston Celtics in six games to secure their fourth championship in eight years.
The team was out celebrating their hard-fought win on Monday (June 20) when a photo from the night surfaced online showing Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins looking a little worse for wear while posing next to a cigar-toting Klay Thompson.
Fans ran with the picture on social media, claiming Wiggins was hitting that loud pack due to his bloodshot red eyes. The 2015 NBA Rookie of the Year looked so wasted some fans joked he resembled Lethal Weapon actor Danny Glover, but one viral tweet took the cake by comparing him to Benny The Butcher.

All the commotion drew the attention of the Griselda rapper, who decided to join the fun. The Black Soprano Family boss admitted he can see why fans made the comparison.
“So word on Twitter is I look like Andrew Wiggins when he wasted…I kinda see it,” Benny wrote while sharing the viral photo.

Andrew Wiggins has yet to respond to the chatter surrounding the picture as he continues to celebrate his first NBA championship. The Toronto native was a valuable piece of the Warriors’ playoff run as he averaged 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in the postseason.
Benny The Butcher, on the other hand, is coming off the release of his latest album Tana Talk 4, which he’s been touting as album of the year. The project features J. Cole, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Boldy James, Stove God Cook$ and more.
