Andre Iguodala did not start a game for the Golden State Warriors during the regular season and for most of the postseason, until the NBA Finals. Once he was inserted into the starting five, Iggy gave the Warriors a sustained boost averaging 16.3 points, 4 assists and 5.8 rebounds to push them over the top.
“My mind was working so many ways,” Iguodala said. “Like, ‘What’s going to happen if you win? What’s going to happen if you lose? How do you approach the game starting? Do you come out firing? Do you let it just come to you?’
“For me, it was just playing my game. If you’re feeling it, shoot it. If you feel like you can make a play for somebody else, make a play for somebody else.”
