Andre Iguodala Roasts Andrew Wiggins For Not Getting Big Rebounds Last Season: "How Does A Man With A 43" Vertical Wait Until Playoffs To Get 16, 17 Rebounds? Your High Was 11…"

Andre Iguodala Roasts Andrew Wiggins For Not Getting Big Rebounds Last Season: "How Does A Man With A 43" Vertical Wait Until Playoffs To Get 16, 17 Rebounds? Your High Was 11…"

The Golden State Warriors won their fourth NBA championship in the last seven years a couple of weeks ago, proving that they are far from done, and the rest of the league should be scared of them for the present and future. Stephen Curry played great basketball during the series, leading his squad to the promised land once again. 

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green did their thing, too, helping Curry in his quest for the 4th NBA championship. Meanwhile, the Warriors found help in their role players, especially Andrew Wiggins, who embraced his role on the team and never stopped to help them win another title. 

However, it seems like Wiggins could do a lot more in the eyes of Andre Iguodala. The veteran swingman had some things to say to Wiggins during a recent edition of his Point Forward show, roasting the former No. 1 overall pick for having a huge vertical but waiting until the playoffs to show it off. 

Andre Iguodala: “How does a man with a 43" vertical wait until playoffs to start rebounding and get 16, 17 rebounds? Your high was 11… I don't know what it was, but you started getting every rebound. Offensive rebounds..."

Andrew Wiggins: “You gotta figure out different ways to get it... We played small vs. Memphis, I’m in there rebounding & I’m like, ‘This ain’t that hard! I can rebound!’ I’m like, ‘I can do this.’ I’ll never average 4 rebounds again.”

That was great news for Wiggins, who didn't stop until the Finals, where he showed his quality once again. Wiggs stopped Jayson Tatum, bringing a lot of help for the Warriors, who relied on Curry on the offensive side of the ball, but also counted on Wiggins to stop the most difficult rivals on the Celtics roster. 

The Warriors hope to extend their reign in the league next season, with Wiggins returning after a great campaign. They know how it feels to win, and nothing points out that they'll stop collecting titles soon.
