There's plenty of former Wildcats playing for the NBA Championship

NBA: Utah Jazz at Golden State Warriors Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday night, the Warriors completed their comeback from a 3-1 deficit against the Thunder with a 96-88 win in Oakland. Andre Iguodala got his second start of the entire season. He ended up playing 43 minutes, scored seven points, grabbed four rebounds and had three assists. This seals the fact that seven guys with Arizona ties will either be playing or coaching in this year's Finals

- Former Arizona assistant and current NAU head coach Jack Murphy was at the game

- Iguodala should've gone Kobe on the Thunder. There was a time when Iggy got a message from the Laker great saying that he was going to score 50 on him. Kobe ended up getting 48 that night
