Andre Iguodala's season-high 25 points and stellar defense propelled the Warriors to a championship-clinching win on Tuesday, and it helped him walk away with the Finals MVP trophy.
The Scoop: It's been a wild ride for Iguodala in the Finals. He was promoted to the starting lineup mid-series despite starting zero games during the regular season, a first in NBA history, and the 11-year veteran proceeded to check LeBron James defensively while providing a burst of open-court speed and playmaking to take some pressure off the Splash Brothers. It's an incredible accomplishment for the selfless veteran, who will earn a guaranteed $11.7 million to reprise his role with Golden State next season.
