NBA training camps officially started today so the week kicked off yesterday with Media Day press conferences. The clear headline for me was the first official interview of returning Warriors star Andre Iguodala. It really pained me to see Andre suit up for the Miami Heat the last two years. One of the MANY things I am looking forward to this year is the return of Klay Thompson, the growth and development of James Wiseman, and the triumphant return of Iggy to where he belongs.
Undoubtedly, Iggy will return to helping anchor and solidify the second unit when Steph, Klay, and Draymond need rest or get into foul trouble. Iggy will also be available to give Steve Kerr some more options on defense and with the Death Lineup that can be strategically deployed when necessary. Sure, he’s two years older and not the player he was half a decade ago but his familiarity with the Dubs offense and his leadership in the locker room will be invaluable and the Dubs seeks to get back into title contention.
