Green praised Andre Iguodala leadership
Green said about Iguodala.
Andre Iguodala (198cm, F) played 18 years in the NBA. He played seven seasons with the Golden State Warriors. He helped Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Clay Thompson to win all four championships. In particular, he won the NBA Finals MVP in recognition of his performance in the 2014-2015 season.
However, as time passed, Iguodala did not show much on the court. He played 31 games this season, averaging only 4 points, 3.7 assists, and 3.2 rebounds. Most of the records included career lows. He also played only 19.5 points.
In addition, he played seven games in the playoffs and played an average of eight minutes. In other words, the influence within the game was insignificant. However, outside of the game, he kept the center of the team. Iguodala, who clearly knows the culture of Golden State, was caught talking to other players during the game. Through his unique leadership, he awakened the players and influenced them in other ways.
In response, Green compared Iguodala in its heyday and Iguodala in its present. In an interview with South Florida Sun Sentinel, Green said, “I don’t think Iguodala had more influence than now when he won the final MVP. Iguodala calmed the players and coordinated the team’s offense. He also told me where each of them should be,” he said.
“What I’m 100% sure is that without Iguodala’s leadership, we would have failed to win. I didn’t think leadership would have such a big impact before, but I felt it was possible through this leadership of Iguodala,” he said, praising Iguodala’s leadership.
Meanwhile, Iguodala’s contract with Golden State expires at the end of this season. Attention is focusing on what choice Iguodala will make.
