Andre Iguodala is taking the NBA Finals loss to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers hard but is using it as a motivation for the next season. According to the veteran forward, the defeat was painful but it could bring the Golden State Warriors together and build a dynasty and win the next four titles.
“I said this after we lost. Losing this game might propel us to four championships. Then when you go recruit a guy who’s available like this, once every 25 years. If we would’ve won, I don’t know if we would’ve got him. We lose, got a chance and there’s a chance to go after four or however many we possibly got a chance to get,” the veteran told the San Jose Mercury News.
“You understand that – J Cole is a rapper and he says that, ‘There’s beauty in pain and there’s struggle in success.’ That was the beauty in the pain. In the Finals, we made a lot of mistakes we can fix. But going through that struggle and getting something like this, hopefully we can do great things.”
In the biggest free agency news in recent years, Kevin Durant decided to join the Warriors, a team that has made the NBA Finals the last two seasons. This shook the sports world as Golden State has now built a “Super Team” that can contend in the next four or five years.
Andre Iguodala believes that they are good for another four championships, which is possible because Curry, Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are all young guys and just in their prime.
The Warriors are motivated to win after the disappointing loss to LeBron and the Cavs. Will Golden State live up to the hype of their “Super Team”?
