The Golden State Warriors are once again NBA champions for the fourth time in eight years.
They took down the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, capping off a wildly exciting season that saw them playing like the iconic franchise they have become.
And while it was a team effort that got them across the finish line, Stephen Curry deserves a lot of praise.
Andre Iguodala sure thinks so.
A true teammate 🤝

Following the final seconds of the last game of the season, Iguodala made a point to grab the game ball, race through the court, and place it in Curry’s arms.
An emotional Curry responded by hugging Iguodala and letting the emotions flow.
It was a touching moment between the two superstars and made you wonder what the team will be like if and when Iguodala decides to hang it up.
Iguodala Moving On
Iguodala knows just how special winning the Finals can be – especially since he was named the 2014-2015 Finals MVP.
Since then, his career has taken a few turns (remember his time with the Miami Heat) but it seems like it’s getting closer and closer to concluding.
The 38-year-old guard is seriously contemplating retirement.
It’s obvious that he’s just not as capable or dominant as he once was.
His minutes have been a reflection of that: He only played in 31 games this year and had an average of 19 minutes on the floor per game.
It’s no secret that Iguodala may have just played his last game with the team.
But the video above shows just how special he is for his squad.
He might not be creating a lot of points but he is creating a lot of spirit, attitude, and brotherhood.
