Andre Iguodala isn’t afraid to speak the truth.

Talking to The Breakfast Club, the Golden State Warriors small forward admitted the Oklahoma City Thunder should have won the NBA Championship.

“Now that we got KD, I can say it —€” they were the best team in the league last year, in the playoffs. They were better than us, and they were better than Cleveland.”

“They should have won a championship,” Iguodala said.

Iguodala is bang on with his comments.

The Thunder were poised to win the NBA Championship after putting the record-setting Warriors in an unimaginable 3-1 stranglehold. Russell Westbrook was an unstoppable force, Kevin Durant was contributing buckets and OKC was getting impressive efforts from Andre Roberson and Steven Adams. Unfortunately, the Thunder’s momentum stopped and the Warriors clawed back to reach the NBA Finals.

Iguodala admitted OKC “had our number” and he’s right. The Warriors were rattled before they reeled off the unlikely comeback. It was the Thunder’s series to lose.

The comments are much easier to make for the small forward now Kevin Durant has joined his side. Still, it’s a refreshing proclamation for Iguodala to say publicly. He’s giving respect to one of the NBA’s best teams to never win a title. If things didn’t go the Warriors way, Durant might not be in their uniform, so I’m betting he’s still thrilled with how the series unfolded.
