Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala says the Dubs should pass 50 wins this season if healthy.
Stephen Curry indicated the Golden State Warriors are aiming for 50 wins this season when he said earlier this month that there's a number that "has a five in front of it" written on a whiteboard inside the team's practice facility as a goal.
Apparently that's not enough for Andre Iguodala.
Not after he helped the Denver Nuggets win a franchise-record 57 games last season. And not after he turned down more lucrative offers to sign a $48 million four-year deal with the Warriors this summer.
"I would say more than that" Iguodala said Wednesday at the team's downtown Oakland headquarters where most players have been voluntarily working out for about three weeks before training camp starts Sept. 29. "I just have really high expectations for us. I won't say too much about wins. I'd rather fly under the radar."

Golden State has lofty expectations this upcoming season after pushing San Antonio in the playoffs. The Warriors got even better after acquiring Andre Iguodala over the summer. Many feel Iguodala will bring a lot to the Warriors, but Iguodala himself feels his game is unappreciated. ”I don’t think I got enough credit for what I bring […]
Who would have thought that the Golden State would be the talk of the NBA before the season even starts.
Golden State is not a shocking pick to win the West after the steps they took last season. They added the toughness and versatility with the signing of Andre Iguodala, and the veteran forward likes what he’s seeing so far.
Iguodala piggybacked off of what Stephen Curry said...
When the Golden State Warriors invited former Duke guard Seth Curry to training camp, I don’t think many people were the least bit surprised. After all, nepotism is not a new concept in pro sports. It’s not uncommon for teams to cater to their stars by giving their family and friends an opportunity in a relatively low-risk situation. In some cases, they end up making the team...

The question is, will it help Barnes grow into his potential, or could it hurt his development...

As was wildly evident in last season’s NBA Finals, having fire come off of the bench is a necessity in the basketball world today. The Heat allowed their starters rest throughout the playoffs by having a second unit that could easily hold their own against the starting lineups of many teams in the lower half of the league. This is a concept that...
Lindsey Hunter (@Suns)
17 year NBA veteran Lindsey Hunter is the newest addition to the Warriors coaching staff as he was let go by the Pheonix Suns when he went 12-29 in his 41 games as interim Head Coach last year. Hunter may not be a household name but if you had to describe the former guard in one word it is without a doubt, tough. Hunter was widely respected as one of the toughest...
Draymond Green has lost nearly 20 pounds since the end of last season.
Green has improved his diet while also training differently as he enters his second NBA season with the Golden State Warriors.
"I catch my breath faster," Green said. "I move a little faster. I can get up off the floor a little bit better. And it feels a lot better on my knees. ... I feel great...
Draymond Green is lighter by nearly 20 pounds since you last saw him wearing a Warriors uniform in the Western Conference playoffs. But entering his second year his responsibilities will be heavier.
"I had the respect of the guys on the team" Green told local reporters at the team facility on Tuesday. "But now it's time to use my voice and use my leadership (skills...
With the maturation of Stephen Curry into a great scorer and leader, the Golden State Warriors are turning into a franchise with plenty of buzz around them. The addition of former All-Star and US National Team member Andre Iguodala only solidifies that they are going after the team that knocked them out of the playoffs […]
The Warriors on Wednesday announced that Lindsey Hunter is coming on board as an assistant coach on Mark Jackson’s staff. You may remember him from his 17-year career as a serviceable back-up point guard for a host of teams, mostly with the Pistons. More recently, he was the poor sap in charge of that four-car pileup in Phoenix last season called the Suns. He was promoted to interim...
New Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala is one of the select NBA players that I like to personally call a “winning” player. Winning meaning their game is constructed in a way that helps their team win in any way possible. Not just points, but rebounding, defending, passing, and all of the little things that […]

Many are abuzz about the Golden State Warriors and the tremendous amount of potential that they have to maybe even come out of the Western Conference this season. Andre Iguodala, who signed a four-year, $48M deal with the Warriors this summer thinks the Warriors will be really good this season. When asked if the Warriors could win 50 games...
The best thing about going to the county fair is the hayride back to the car. Don't get me wrong, I get some entertainment out of determining which person has the worst bleached-blonde hair. I enjoy going into the 4H barns for a millisecond until I realize I'm in the middle of a barn and it reeks like farm animals. I even make a game out of locating as many emergency...
