Andre Iguodala paid sufficient consideration to his former teammates’ preseason opener to agree with one Warriors fan’s tongue-in-cheek gripe.
The Miami Warmth ahead favored a tweet with a screenshot of Eric Paschall placing the ball on the ground moderately than passing to a wide-open Steph Curry behind the 3-point line throughout the Warriors’ 107-105 exhibition win over the Denver Nuggets at Chase Heart on Saturday.
Iguodala and Curry grew shut of their six seasons as teammates, making 5 straight NBA Finals appearances alongside each other. They’ve razzed each other about their respective golf video games, however Iguodala has all the time had the utmost confidence in Curry’s on-court talents.
“I feel they are going to be motivated from final 12 months,” Iguodala stated of Curry and the Warriors in an interview with The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch final month. “I feel it was good for them to have that point off. Going to that many Finals takes a toll on a physique, particularly what is anticipated from [Curry]. It was good for him to only be capable to let the mind quiet down from the final 5 years. I feel Steph is in his bag proper now by way of the prep he’s been placing to prepare for the upcoming season. I’m actually, actually excited to see what he comes out and does.”
Curry scored simply 10 factors (on 3-of-10 capturing) Saturday, his first recreation in over 9 months. He solely performed in 5 final season with Paschall, largely as a result of he sustained a damaged left hand final October.
That is 408 fewer than Iguodala performed in six seasons with Golden State, so the second-year professional ought to have loads of time to study simply when he ought to cross to Curry.
