Iguodala: The crazy thing about Draymond is that he’s one of the smartest basketball players I’ve EVER been around in my life. The game comes so easy to him so you’d think he was athletic. But if you watch him throw a football it’s like…he played tight end but he can’t throw a football. He can’t hit a baseball…he just whacks at a baseball. Just any other sport, it doesn’t transfer for him.
For sports fans that find watching golf boring and would otherwise not turn on a PGA Tour event, Friday might be a good day to amend that stance. Former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala will be joining the TNT broadcast team to serve as a “special contributor” during round two of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C. After re-upping with the world champion Warriors for three years and $48 million less than a month ago, Iguodala will get a chance to try something different Friday afternoon and call some of the action.
Q: Let’s shift to free agency a few weeks later. Everyone knows what you did, taking that nearly $10-million paycut. Was it an ‘Oh, if Andre (Iguodala) needs this much, I’ll take this much’ kind of situation? How did that decision come together? Durant: Well, I’m a smart guy and I want to keep this thing going and looking at Andre and Shaun (Livingston) and Steph (Curry) — they all should make the most money that they can make and get what they deserve. Because they were all underpaid and I knew at some point they’d want to get what they deserve. So I just took a step back and let the chips fall where they may. Then I took it in my hands. I wanted to keep the team together and I thought it was going to help the ownership bring all the guys back. And on top of that, it’s my money. It’s my decision. I can do what the hell I want with it.
The 2017 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have re-signed free agents Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia and David West to contracts, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreements were not released. Curry, 29, averaged a team-high 25.3 points per game (10th in the NBA) in 2016-17 to go with 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.81 steals (seventh) in 33.4 minutes over 79 games, earning All-NBA Second Team honors. The two-time MVP led the league in three-point field goals for a fifth consecutive year, following his NBA-record 402 threes in 2015-16 with 316 triples in 2016-17, including an NBA single-game record 13 threes on Nov. 7 vs. New Orleans. Curry upped his averages to 28.1 points, 6.7 assists and 6.2 rebounds in 35.4 minutes over 17 games in the 2017 postseason, helping Golden State capture its second title in three seasons. In eight career seasons with the Warriors, Curry owns averages of 22.8 points, 6.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.79 steals and is the franchise’s all-time leader in three-point field goals (1,917, 10th in NBA history).
