‘We’re going to Augusta!'” Andre Iguodala 2015. Click below for more.
The NFL has a long standing tradition where a player from the victorious team yells out “I’m going to Disney World!” or “I’m going to Disneyland!” immediately after winning the Super Bowl. In a great new twist. the newly crowned 2015 NBA Champion Andre Iguodala may have just created a new tradition for the NBA.
Before Andre Iguodala received his NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award, he made some unusual post-Finals plans. He caught Stephen Curry’s attention and reminded him it was time to cash in on Steve Kerr’s pledge to use a connection to get them on the most revered golf course in the land.
“When we won, I’m yelling at Steph, ‘We’re going to Augusta!'” Iguodala said. “You know how everybody goes to Disneyland? We’re going to Augusta.”
That’s your 2014-15 NBA champion Golden State Warriors. Unconventional to the end — and even beyond the end. And that’s Iguodala, who made golf a central part of this season — even if beating Curry at Augusta National would be even more unlikely than his beating Curry and LeBron James for the Finals MVP.
