Maybe Andre Iguodala still has hurt feelings over LeBron James’ chase down block of the century on him that helped clinch the title for the Cavs. Maybe his back still hurts from getting dump trucked by LeBron for seven games in the Finals. Whatever the reason, when Iguodala appeared on The Breakfast Club morning radio show yesterday, he still wasn’t prepared to give the Cavs and LeBron their full props.
When the conversation turned to the Playoffs, Iguodala said the Thunder, not the Cavs, were the best team in the Playoffs.
“Now that we got KD, I can say it, they were the best team in the league last year, in the Playoffs. They were better than us, they were better than Cleveland.
He added, “They should have won a championship.”

Nick Wright filled for Colin today and didn’t take kindly to Iguodala’s slight to Cleveland, and more specifically, LeBron.
“The whole Jordan era, everyone just bows at his alter. And now you got Andre Iguodala being like ‘Let’s be honest, let me tell you something, the Thunder were the best team, they played us better than Cleveland, who beat us.’
Were you not there last week? Did your back injury, did it extend to the brain? What are you talking about man? This is how professional basketball works. Which team that has the best player on the court? You answer that one question, and you answer who wins a series 85% of the time. And unless LeBron’s quitting, Cleveland had the best player, and has the best player.”
Even though the Warriors added Durant, Nick says people shouldn’t be so quick to crown the new Warriors dynasty.
“And while everyone is just hyperventilating about the Golden State. I looked at these Finals and I said to myself, ‘You know what Golden State’s issue is? Nobody can stop LeBron.’ And you know what Golden State just did? Got rid of their three rim protectors, got rid of some of their depth, and didn’t get anyone to stop LeBron.”
