In a recent interview on ESPN’s show “First Take” Andre Iguodala stood against the media and some players in the league who don’t appreciate Stephen Curry and the work he has done so far in the league. According to Iguodala, there is a significant “hate” towards Stephen Curry from his colleagues around the league and especially media who are apparently not showing Stephen Curry the respect he deserves.
There was a lot of discussion about the ability of Stephen Curry to hit clutch shots in crucial moments of playoff games. The media was all over him because of those reasons for the most part and Iguodala came to defend his teammate and said he stepped up his game big time after KD got injured which is completely true.
After Durant got injured, Stephen Curry alongside other members of the Warriors surprised the Rockets and went to lose against the Raptors in six games. Throughout the playoffs, this season Curry averaged 28 points alongside with 6 rebounds and 6 assists per game with a very solid shooting percentage from the field.
“You saw what he did when KD wasn’t there and trying to step his game up. He is an interesting one, in my opinion, I’ve never seen a guy as humble and has such a good heart receive so much hate. It’s amazing what he has done for the game of basketball it’s incredible. We feel it from the guys in the league and we feel it from the media. He is carrying the whole shoe brand, he has his own media company.
