Andre Iguodala stated during a recent interview that he felt the Thunder had the best team in the league last season, and that they should have won a championship.

"Now that we got [Kevin Durant], I can say it: They were the best team last year in the league in the playoffs," Iguodala said. "They were better than us. They were better than Cleveland. They were the best team in the playoffs. They should've won a championship." Go ahead and throw a copious amount of salt on the wounds of OKC fans with this quote. With one of the best scorers in NBA history now a member of the Warriors, anything less than multiple championships will be a disappointment.

Andre Iguodala (back) shifted to the bench on Sunday and posted four points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks during the Warriors' Game 7 home loss.

Iguodala was visibly limited by a stiff back during Game 6, but he played tonight's game without any medical restrictions and didn't appear limited while playing 38 minutes. His inability to make 3-pointers (0-of-3) enabled the Cavs to load up on the Warriors' key threats, but Iguodala wasn't alone in his struggles -- after a scorching first half, the Warriors went a combined 5-of-20 from beyond the arc after halftime.

Andre Iguodala (back) will come off the bench on Sunday, though he's expected to play without a minute-limit.

Steve Kerr expressed confidence in the health of Iguodala's back, but Golden State will revert to their usual regular-season approach with a true center in the starting five -- Festus Ezeli will replace the injured Andrew Bogut (knee). We'll know soon enough whether Iguodala's health will be a limiting factor as he continues his tough defensive assignment against LeBron James.

Steve Kerr said that he doesn't anticipate Andre Iguodala's back being an issue during Game 7.

"I'm anticipating [Iguodala] playing and holding up, but we'll see how it goes when he's out there," said Kerr. To be clear, Iguodala is in zero danger of sitting out Game 7, but it remains to be seen how effective he can be while dealing with discomfort in his back. For what it's worth, Iguodala did get extra treatment on his back Sunday morning and his trainer said that he's made good progress from where he was after Game 6. Additionally, he has not required a cortisone shot to alleviate the pain.

Andre Iguodala (back stiffness) is expected to play on Sunday for Game 7 without a minutes restriction.

He did not practice on Saturday and received treatment after a walk-through. Iguodala was in quite a bit of pain during Game 6, but said he's good to go for Sunday. He has been more involved in the offense and has been the primary defender on LeBron James, who has been close to unstoppable in the last three. Last year's Finals MVP has a lot of pressure on him and figures to be in the starting lineup.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr tried to limit Andre Iguodala's minutes in Game 6 after he tweaked his back.

"I wanted to make sure it wasn’t anything that was going to get worse," Kerr said. "His back was tight, but we tried to limit his minutes as much as we could. He wanted to play, and this is probably the first time I’ve been happy that we have two days before the next game in the series." Iguodala didn't look right at all in what was his worst game of the series, but he should be much better with a couple days of rest and is fully expected to play in Game 7 on Sunday.

Andre Iguodala (back, wrist) was in pain for most of Thursday's loss to the Cavs, scoring five points with four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 30 minutes.

He tweaked his back in the first half and needed to go to the locker room in the second half. Iguodala had a tough time walking during this game and it could affect him for Game 7 on Sunday. He'll be out there, but he'll get plenty of treatment and possibly a cortisone shot on Sunday.
Jun 17 - 12:02 AM

Andre Iguodala (back) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Thursday.

He was hurting for most of the game. Iguodala tweaked his back in the first half and had a trainer stretch him out on the bench. He was laboring for most of the game and hasn't been himself. Brandon Rush has seen some playing time with Iguodala out. Harrison Barnes has been awful, so this is not a good spot for the Warriors.
Jun 16 - 10:52 PM

Andre Iguodala will start for Game 6 on Thursday.

It is an obvious move with Andrew Bogut (knee) out. This starting lineup played at most 21 minutes together in last year's Finals, which seems like a fair bar to set tonight. Iguodala could be in the running for Finals MVP with a big game tonight. Enjoy the game.
Jun 16 - 8:42 PM

Andre Iguodala played 41 minutes in a start against the Cavs in Game 5 loss on Monday, scoring 15 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and three turnovers.

LeBron James was just too good and the help defense wasn't up to par for Iguodala. With Andrew Bogut (knee) likely out, coach Steve Kerr could go with Iguodala in the starting lineup with Draymond Green at the five -- the Warriors used this starting lineup in The Finals last year. Iguodala will get plenty of run regardless when he comes into the game. He might be the favorite for Finals MVP.
Jun 14 - 12:01 AM

Andre Iguodala will get the start against the Cavs for Game 5 on Monday.

This move makes a lot more sense than the previous report of James Michael McAdoo getting the start. Iguodala has been awesome against LeBron James, leading the Dubs in plus-minus during this series. He has huge pressure on him tonight.
Jun 13 - 8:35 PM

Andre Iguodala scored 10 points with six rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

He has been incredible on the defensive end. Iguodala was particularly good in the second half to help slow the Cavs offense to a crawl, allowing just 42 points after halftime. He's charged with a the tall task of guarding LeBron James for almost all of his minutes. He might not win Finals MVP this time, but he's arguably been even better on defense in these playoffs.
Jun 11 - 12:20 AM

Andre Iguodala may skip the Olympics due to concerns over the Zika virus.

Iguodala still wants to play, but is "keenly watching the developments." Sources told Thompson that "players have been advised to not bring their families to Brazil and to sleep in malaria nets to avoid being affected." Pau Gasol has already gone on record regarding his concerns, and it wouldn't be surprising to see some potential athletes pass on the opportunity due to the ongoing issues.
Jun 6 - 11:51 AM

Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench against the Cavs on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

It was a little surprising to see Iguodala come off the bench with all his momentum in the last series, and last year in The Finals. After the game, coach Steve Kerr said he didn't want to shake up the starting lineup because they did go 73-9 in the regular season. Iguodala still played most of his minutes against LeBron James while turning in an efficient line on offense. He was fantastic as per usual.
