I must preface that I'm a Lakers fan. Showtime, Kobe/Shaq, … Jordan Clarkson (ha.. but really, I believe he's gonna be somebody). All of that. And I'm from LA, so I could care less about the bay area teams (well, i'm indifferent to the Niners and the A's because they're not rivals to any of my teams). Then there are these Warriors… I say "these" because it's this particular group of guys that has won my heart; has made me say, 'I'm proud of these guys'. That's amazing I'm saying that.
And regarding Iguodala winning the Finals MVP, I think that's great. Yeah, you can easily make the case for Lebron or Steph to win that award because stat-wise we all know that without them their respective teams could not have performed the way they did. But Iggy was just as valuable. From a stat perspective, there's only one stat in my eyes that solidifies his MVP type performance–he held Lebron to a 35% FG percentage. With anyone else, Lebron was 50%+. Good enough for me. But what really makes this award significant is that Iggy truly embodies what this award stands for in the case of the Warriors–as their motto states, Strength in Numbers. When Kerr executed his plans to call up players from the bench to step into game changing roles, and in the same vain when he had to sit starter caliber players to execute his strategy, whoever it was they were sold into his plan and executed accordingly. In summation, it's the true essence of TEAM. Egos were checked for the greater good of winning that trophy.
This is why I love these guys. Congratulations Golden State Warriors.
