Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala got seven first-place votes, 16 second-place votes and 17 third-place votes for a total of 100 points in the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year balloting — and finished fourth, 402 points behind winner Lou Williams of Toronto. “I was hoping I didn’t get it,” Iguodala said before Monday’s Game 2. “I really didn’t have a good year, so I’m glad Lou got it.

And once I'm somewhere I like to be comfortable there. And this team, this city and this organization has embraced me as one of their own and I look forward to being here." USA Today Sports

Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics finished second with 324 points (33 first-place votes), and two-time winner Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers was third with 131 points (eight first-place votes).
