The star of the 2015 NBA Finals was supposed to be Stephen Curry. Or LeBron James. Or Klay Thompson. Or Kyrie Irving. But not Andre Iguodala. When the dust settled, the former NBA All-Star-turned-role player emerged with Finals MVP honours after helping the Warriors bring home the title in six games.
So who could be this year's Iguodala? There are a few candidates.
Since being acquired by the Cavs via trade in February, Frye has shown the ability to fill it up from time to time. The sweet-shooting big man has hit double figures five times in the post-season, including a 27-point outburst featuring a seven-for-nine performance from three-point range against the Atlanta Hawks in the second round. His three-point shooting will be needed against the high-scoring Warriors.
