Andre Iguodala’s race-related comments cause stir in locker room
Andre Iguodala created an “awkward” situation Friday night with some controversial race-related comments in the locker room following the Warriors’ loss to the Timberwolves.
After a reporter asked the Warriors swingman if he had known coach Steve Kerr planned to rest Iguodala and three Warriors starters in Saturday’s game against the Spurs, Iguodala told reporters (via ESPN). “Nope, no clue. I do what master say.”
Frustrated by the 103-102 loss that included several calls that didn’t go the Warriors’ way, Iguodala later dropped a couple of other controversial remarks. When a reporter asked what had caused the loss, Iguodala said, “We gotta score more than the other team. Yep, they want dumb n—s, so I’m going to give y’all a dumb n—.”
Iguodala continued on his regrettable theme when asked if there were other issues beyond just the team’s offense. “What would dumb n—s say? ‘Just play harder. Figure it out. Change gonna come.’ You know what we used to say. Change gonna come.”
