Video: Beautiful Warriors Passing In Sixers Blowout

Klay Thompson, Furkan Aldemir

Normally we’re loathe to highlight blowouts like last night’s 126-86 Golden State stomping of Philadelphia; it’s just not fair to the losing team. But the Warriors moved the ball so well on their way to 38 assists (for comparison, the Sixers had 16), we had to show you video featuring a pair of sick Steph Curry dimes and one amazing sequence punctuated by an incredible Andre Iguodala find.

Which Was More Entertaining: Iguodala’s Soaring Jam or Missed Jam?

DeAndre Jordan, Andre Iguodala

Andre Iguodala had an up and down second quarter at Staples Center last night. He only ended up with five points in 20 minutes of action as the Clippers defense helped give them a 100-86 win, but two of Iggy’s points came off a beautiful dunk in the second quarter. Too bad he might have ruined it later in the same quarter… Read More »

Do you like football? Us neither – compared to hoops, at least. But it’s still fun to see aspects of our two most popular games cross over. Watch Steph Curry drill an insanely difficult three-pointer after getting a hand-off from Andre Iguodala. Read More »

Video: Andre Iguodala Posterizes Luke Babbitt After Full-Court Outlet

Andre Iguodala, Luke Babbitt

The Warriors beat the Pelicans in New Orleans Sunday afternoon, extending their winning streak to 16 games and keeping them atop the Western Conference standings at 21-2. Though not exactly the ’96 Bulls, this Dubs team is deep and everyone passes the ball in a motion offense that forces teams to pick their poison. Andre Iguodala, who has struggled shooting the ball at times this year, had 20 points off the bench in Golden State’s OT win, and found time to put Luke Babbitt on a poster. Read More »

GIF: Andre Iguodala’s Maniacal Reaction After Draining The Three-Pointer

Andre Iguodala

On Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors continued to assault the NBA with their high-octane offense, bolstered by threats seemingly all over the floor. Except, for a stretch of four games, Andre Iguodala was just 3-for-18 with the Dubs 2-2 in those games. However, he’s picked it up over the last week, which might explain his Exorcist face after nailing a three-pointer against the Magic. Read More »

GIF: Andre Iguodala Coast-To-Coast Jam

Andre Iguodala

Recently, Joe Johnson made waves when he claimed his then- 4-and-2 Nets were playing selfishly on offense. You could never accuse Warriors first-time six man Andre Iguodala of being selfish. The former all-star, who has selflessly agreed to lead the Dubs second team, has barely looked at the rim this season — he’s averaging a career low 6 shot attempts per contest through the team’s first eight games. But on one play before halftime last night against the visiting Nets, Iggy eschewed the pass for an exciting coast-to-coast gallivant. Read More »

Steve Kerr On Starting Barnes Over Iggy: “You Could Call Me An Idiot”

Steve Kerr, Warriors

The Warriors are contenders in the West with one of the best backcourts in the NBA right now. But they’ve also got a new coach with Steve Kerr and his jiggering of the starting lineup led to some self-effacing comments on Sunday before the Dubs tip off the season opener in Sacramento on Wednesday. Kerr has brought Andre Iguodala off the bench as the point/forward of their second team in the preseason, and they’ve started third-year forward Harrison Barnes despite Barnes’ regression in his second season.

Andre Iguodala Says Klay Thompson 3-Point Attempts Are Comparable To Layups

Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson

It’s not even debatable anymore: Corner three-pointers and attempts from the restricted area are the most valuable shots in basketball. The Houston Rockets have based an entire offensive identity on this line of thinking to great success, and every defense in the league’s foremost goal is preventing those specific tries. While the NBA has obviously come around to understanding the value of shots from deep, though, most players and teams would surely opt for an uncontested layup as opposed to dishing to an open teammate waiting beyond the arc. But the Golden State Warriors aren’t most teams, and Klay Thompson isn’t most shooters. Read More »

Report: Warriors May Start Harrison Barnes, Bring Andre Iguodala Off Bench

Harrison Barnes

We didn’t bat an eye when the Golden State Warriors started Harrison Barnes instead of Andre Iguodala to open their rout of the Los Angeles Lakers last night. Preseason is the time to experiment, after all, and Iguodala suffered a broken nose in his team’s previous exhibition against the Lakers on Thursday. Giving the youngster some confidence by playing with the starters and Iguodala some rest was a prudent decision by first-time head coach Steve Kerr, we thought. Then came news, however, that not only was Iguodala active and playing without restrictions, but Kerr went with Barnes in his place to get a look at a potential change in his regular season rotation.
