Andre Iguodala: Nigerian Basketballer Who Tamed Lebron James At NBA Finals – Entertainment Express

4 min read


For his remarkable feat on the night, Golden State Warriors player, Andre Iguodala was named MVP at the 2015 NBA Finals.

His recognition came on the cusp of his stunning display against Cleveland Cavaliers’ Lebrin James.

The 31 year old Iguodala who is born to a Nigerian father and American mother also made history last night — becoming the first player to be named MVP (Most Valuable Player) without starting every game.

When Iguodala was on the floor, he made sure Lebron James hardly touched the ball, reducing James’ shots from the field to 38.1%.
