Sonoran Hot Reads: Andre Iguodala is coming on strong late...again

New, comment

Time for Iggy's defense to be the difference again?

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Last year, Andre Iguodala won the NBA Finals MVP after making his first start of the year in Game Four of the Finals for the Warriors. This year, the former Wildcat is poised to make his biggest contribution of the year at the most important time of the year once again. After game six, Steve Kerr called Iguodala the team's unsung hero while evening up the series against the Thunder. Why? His defense against the other team's star player has completely altered the makeup of last year's NBA Finals and this year's Western Conference Finals

- Iggy is trying to join Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye in this year's Finals. Those two have taken different paths to reach this point with the Cavaliers

- The fact that Jefferson is still a thing in the NBA is amazing
