Andre Iguodala Says "Shooting and Killing Us" Is Only Way to Beat Warriors

I’m not that sensitive of a guy, so I got the joke and wasn’t offended.

Back to that part in a second, but the Golden State Warriors are rolling at 23-0 and looking “unstoppable” at times. With that amount of success, breeds invincibility and bravado.

Andre Iguodala’s latest attempt at bravado is likely to land him some criticism, according to ESPN.comAfter his team’s 114-98 victory over the Nets in Brooklyn, the veteran swingman was asked by reporters about how to stop the defending NBA champions.

Speaking to a small group of reporters after his team’s 114-98 victory over the Nets in Brooklyn, the veteran swingman offered, “Going to the gun range and learning how to shoot. Kill us all.”

After Iguodala smiled, the reporter asked about the Warriors’ knowing how to “shoot” in basketball terms, to which Iguodala corrected, “No, that’s the only way you gonna beat us: If you shoot us and kill us and we can’t play.” Then Iguodala smiled again and said, “That’s a joke.”

Iguodala was then asked by the reporter to answer the question seriously, to which Iguodala said, “No, that’s for real. I’m serious.”

He then continued, “I think teams just try to throw different looks at us, and we just have a very versatile group of guys, we mix up our matchups. For every action, I think we have a reaction for it, and [that] will help us win.”

You see the bravado? Iguodala, normally calm and reserve, is riding the wave, but his comments came on the same night President Obama addressed the country over our lingering issues with gun violence.
