Andre Iguodala says he’s playing better because he’s golfing more

It’s been a wet winter in California. Which is a good thing, this is a state ravaged by drought in recent years, plus it has led to a beautiful “super bloom.” (You know, where people get in their polluting cars and drive an hour to enjoy nature, trample it, then drive home.)

All the rain and lightning has been hard on golfers, however.

Which in turn has been hard on Andre Iguodala‘s basketball game. That’s what he said in a walk-off interview after the Warriors beat the Pacers Thursday.

Note to other playoff teams: Clearly, the key to beating the Warriors in the postseason is to make sure golf courses in the area are closed on off days of the series. Iguodala, Stephen Curry, and other Warriors are avid golfers, maybe keeping them off the links is the best way to beat them. It’s probably going to work better than any scheme a coach can devise to slow down a Curry/Kevin Durant pick-and-roll.
