“I’m going to blame a few people,” Iguodala said. “Steph Curry is one person I am going to blame. But, as a group, I am blaming Draymond [Green], Steph, and Klay [Thompson]. Steve Kerr a little bit, Bob Myers, I think they just showed me a lot of love.

“They really helped me see my presence outside of physically playing basketball, but also I think Steve was a big culprit in terms of, ‘Listen, we really need you on the court.’ Draymond was big on that as well.”

Iguodala said he’s looking forward to mentoring the young players on the Warriors in his final season.

“I’m looking forward to playing, but I’m also on [Jonathan] Kuminga, and I’m on Moses Moody and I’m on the young fellas,” Iguodala said. “I’m letting them know if I get on this court, you ain’t doing something right.”
