The Golden State Warriors welcome back Andre Iguodala | NBA on ESPN

and Steve Kerr wanted this done pregame

so he could watch the video and honor

Iguodala rather than do an in-game

during a timeout and so out of all the

champions that have returned and Kevin

Durant Oh beer in March

Iguodala here we go

[Applause]

[Music]

making winning plays doesn't speak much

when he speaks it means so much he's one

of the smartest players I've ever been

around in my 30-plus years in the NBA

he's a leader and he's always there for

me

[Music]

values bios's in the finals when the

lights are the brightest and that's what

you expect from Andre every given night

this years

oh man this is great you don't remember

this for a long time

Lauria to choose to become a warrior and

really started everything along with

Stefan clay Thompson has got center

stage to talk about his teammate

I guess clay loss obviously they say

it's a special night for dog nation we

got one of the greatest warriors in the

history of the organization back called

the Swiss Army knife when my favorite

teammates of all time he made you know

me Steph and draymond lose job so much

easier as well as coach Kerr and all the

coaching staff

so we're indebted to this man for what

he gave us and it's good to have you

back Dre and I can't wait to see you

Jersey and the Raptors one of these days

and we will be seeing him Caleta on the

golf courses throughout the bay area

incredible person

teammate it's the only fair way to do it
