So far this season, all the talk surrounding the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors has been about reigning MVP Stephen Curry. He was named the Western Conference Player of the Week for the first week of the season, after putting up averages of 39.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in 33 minutes per game in the first three games of the season.
Curry has already made a statement for why he could win MVP again this season, and given the fact that he’s the best player on the team and arguably the best player in the league, he will always be the Warriors’ go-to scorer and their leader.
In terms of the offense, Klay Thompson is most likely the Warriors’ secondary scorer behind Curry, but is Thompson truly the Warriors’ x-factor? The Warriors are a team that can win games even when one or two key players are struggling, and the x-factor could even change night to night, depending on matchups and which player is on a hot streak at the time.
In this week’s Golden State Warriors Mailbag, we will discuss if Stephen Curry is the leading candidate for MVP this season and how he compares to the other candidates, any concerns for the Warriors heading into the playoffs, and what Andre Iguodala’s role will be in the playoffs.
When Steve Kerr was named head coach of the Golden State Warriors, it was clear that he had many ideas on how to improve this Warriors team. One of the significant changes that Kerr has made so far in his coaching tenure is moving Andre Iguodala to the bench and starting Harrison Barnes.
Recently, we started a series of articles called “Dubs by the Digits.” These articles give fans a quick statistical breakdown on members of the Golden State Warriors. The first article of this series was about Warriors backup point guard, Shaun Livingston, the second article of this series was about Warriors shooting guard/small forward, Brandon Rush, and the third article in this series was about Warriors small forward/power forward, Draymond Green.
Now, we’re going to take a look at Andre Iguodala.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr might make a fairly significant change to the starting lineup this upcoming season. Although Kerr said that Andre Iguodala will “probably start,” he said that there’s a possibility that another small forward such as Harrison Barnes or even Draymond Green could potentially start instead of Iguodala, according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.
With the NBA Draft happening later today and trade rumors heating up, Andre Iguodala has come forward and made a statement. There have been several rumors recently about the Golden State Warriors trading for Kevin Love and including Klay Thompson in the deal, and Iguodala responded to these rumors in an interview on Sirius XM today.
