I’m not trying to make it sound like it’s time to blow up the Warriors or they wont be competing in the NBA Finals in a few months but their loss to Wolves on Friday night was their fourth loss in six games and that’s shocking. They might also be looking at a third consecutive loss since coach Steve Kerr announced after the Wolves game he will be resting Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala against the Spurs on Saturday. When told of the sitting news during a post-game interview/rant, Iguodala replied with, “Do what master say.”
ESPN’s Chris Haynes later spoke with Iguodala about the “master” comment and how it will be perceived and Iggy said he wanted to make it clear it was a not a shot at Kerr and it’s nothing more than an inside locker joke.
I’ve been on a recent rant about how sensitive people (especially on social media and ESPECIALLY the Warriors during the Shaq & JaVale beef) are nowadays and I don’t think this joke is an issue at all but I can see how a lot of oversensitive people are going to have issues with Iggy’s slave reference, especially since a lot of people made a fuss about Vernon Maxwell’s recent tweets connecting the Utah Jazz and International Women’s Day.
