Golden State Warriors Andre Iguodala was named the Finals MVP for the 2015 NBA season. This is the first time since 1980 that a Finals MVP has been on the same team as the overall season MVP since the era of Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers. It was an intense game on Tuesday night, as it was already game 6 of the finals, but the Golden State Warriors managed to clench the win from the Cleveland Cavaliers with a score of 105-97. Everyone knew that it was going to be a battle for both teams, and it took a lot of extra effort to defeat Lebron James on the court, too. Iguodala is the first winner of the Finals MVP title without having started in every game of the season.
Iguodala has been playing basketball since high school and in 2002 he went on to play for the University of Arizona Wildcats for two years before entering the draft. In 2004 he was picked up by the Philadelphia 76ers where he spent eight years on the team, and then two years with the Denver Nuggets following that before going to the Golden State Warriors in 2013. The 2012 NBA All-Star player has really used the last couple of seasons as an opportunity to shine and show what his abilities are, which came to full circle last night with his first NBA Championships win.
Iguodala was named the Finals MVP this week and he couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. In addition to that, his teammates feel like this was a very justified choice as he was displayed some incredible talent this season despite not starting in every single game.
