Coach Kerr takes backseat in Warriors' 129-83 win over Suns
ABC News - 10 days
OAKLAND, Calif. -- With the grind of a long NBA season wearing on his team, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr believed it was time for his players to hear a new voice in the huddle: their own. Kerr turned over most of the coaching duties to his players on Monday night and they responded in fine fashion, playing with more focus than they had in recent weeks in a 129-83 victory over the Phoenix Suns. "It's the players' team," Kerr said. "It's their team and they have to take ownership of it. As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction, guide them. We don't control them. They determine their own fate. I don't think we've focused well the last month. It just seemed like the right thing to do." Kerr said he told the players of his plan after the previous game and they ran the show for most of the day. Andre Iguodala took over at morning shootaround, JaVale McGee ran the computer for the film session and Iguodala, Draymond Green and David West...

Kevin Durant: Wanted 'underpaid' fellow Warriors to get salaries they deserve
ABC News - 7 months
Kevin Durant said he took things into his own hands to keep the Golden State Warriors together by signing for less than he could have and dismissed criticism of his decision. Durant could have secured a max of $34 million per year from the Warriors but signed for $25.9 million this season, less than he made in 2016-17 ($26.5 million). He explained his decision to The Athletic on Thursday, saying he wanted to ensure that Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Stephen Curry could get paid "what they deserve." "Well, I'm a smart guy and I want to keep this thing going, and looking at Andre and Shaun and Steph, 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," he said. "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....

Andre Iguodala not planning Warriors meeting at free-agency start
ABC News - 8 months
Andre Iguodala doesn't have plans to meet with the Golden State Warriors during the initial free-agency period, league sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes. Iguodala's decision doesn't rule out the small forward returning to the Warriors, but it will give other teams the opportunity to swoop in and take away one component of Golden State's title-winning core. Teams can begin talking to free agents at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, but no deals can be officially signed until July 7. ESPN has confirmed a Vertical report that Iguodala plans to meet with other teams. Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, has been a terrific two-way player since being acquired by the Warriors via trade in 2013. Despite just one start over the past three seasons, he has posted averages of 7.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 26.6 minutes per game. The 6-foot-6 swingman was a finalist in 2016-17 for NBA Sixth Man of the Year. The Warriors are expected to have....

How Warriors took back the crown, and how NBA rivals can compete
ABC News - 9 months
As the Golden State Warriors sat in their locker room a year ago, digesting the final loss of the worst collapse in NBA history, Andre Iguodala stood and said he wanted to address the group. Iguodala rarely does this, according to several members of the team. Everyone stopped. Iguodala insisted they would recover. He mentioned that the San Antonio Spurs had never repeated as champions, a tidbit Warriors coach Steve Kerr, himself a former Spurs player, had mentioned often to underline the difficulty of last season's challenge. If the team responded the right way, Iguodala said, they could put themselves in position to chase several titles -- and wash away the sting from this loss. Some in the room thought Iguodala might have been hinting at the potential signing of Kevin Durant, though Iguodala never uttered his name or directly discussed free agency, sources said. They glanced at Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut, two players who would almost...

Sources: Kevin Durant willing to take less than max to keep Warriors core intact
ABC News - 9 months
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant is willing to take less than the maximum contract extension he is eligible for this summer as a 10-year veteran if it helps the Warriors keep the core of their team intact, league sources told ESPN. Durant's gesture would allow the Warriors to keep their entire core together for years to come even as star point guard Stephen Curry potentially signs one of the first five-year, "supermax" contracts created by the new collective bargaining agreement in which a team can reward one designated veteran player per year with a contract starting at 35 percent of next year's projected $101 million salary cap. This is particularly relevant to free agents Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, who have been pivotal to the Warriors' success as they have advanced to three straight NBA Finals. In order to sign Durant to the maximum possible extension this offseason, starting at an...

The Warriors' Secret Weapon Might Surprise You
Huffington Post - 10 months
The sheer brilliance of Golden State’s offense is undeniable. No team recorded a better offensive efficiency rating, scored more points or dominated the fast-break more than the Warriors all year. When you have a quartet like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, it certainly makes sense. Meanwhile, Golden State’s defensive excellence has been well-documented, but is perhaps not fully understood. How the team goes about it is just as impressive. The Warriors don’t simply guard teams ― they overwhelm them; suffocate them, even.  To hamstring an NBA opponent is a tall task. It requires all five players’ commitment. It also requires versatility, and that’s where the Dubs separate themselves. How many guys can switch ball screens? How many wing players can guard the low post? How many can protect the rim? Interchangeable pieces and versatility are crucial. In the Warriors’ first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers, we saw Head ...

Andre Iguodala on Finals block: 'If J.R. is not there, I'm dunking it'
ABC News - over 1 year
NEW ORLEANS -- It is now widely known as "The Block," and Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala has heard about it countless times. "Believe me, I hear it all the time," he said in an interview centered on "The Block." The iconic scene took place at Oracle Arena in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Warriors. The scoreboard read 89-89 with 4:39 remaining in the contest, and both teams would struggle on offense for the duration. In the midst of that four-minute span of missed field goals and turnovers, it became apparent that whichever team scored first likely would exit the arena victorious. The Warriors were shut out, ending the game with 89 points, while the Cavaliers benefited from the heroics of? Kyrie Irving, whose clutch, step-back 3-pointer over Stephen Curry propelled Cleveland to its first NBA championship. However, before Irving's pivotal trey, the Warriors...

Let Us Never Forget That A Flick Of The Balls Turned The NBA Finals

LeBron James and Draymond Green get tangled up; James steps over Green pic.twitter.com/dAjxpU4C6Y — Kenny Ducey (@KennyDucey) June 11, 2016 The 2016 NBA Finals will be remembered first and foremost for the final three games, when the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a 3-1 series deficit to complete an unprecedented comeback against the greatest team in regular season history. The three games were filled with plays and moments that will long be remembered by even the most casual of basketball fans: Kyrie Irving and LeBron James scoring 41 points apiece in Game 5; J.R. Smith tossing a no-look alley-oop pass to James in Game 6, followed soon thereafter by Stephen Curry tossing his mouthpiece at a fan and Ayesha Curry tossing conspiracy theories at the NBA; James blocking Andre Iguodala's layup attempt with two minutes to go in Game 7; and then, of course, an exhausted LeBron after the final buzzer had sounded in Game 7, alone on the ground with tears in his eyes.
