Yesterday, the Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals and successfully advanced to the Finals. Heat veteran Iguodala will once again meet LeBron James on the stage of the finals. Obviously, the responsibility of defending LeBron will fall on Iguodala. Regarding how to defend LeBron, Iguodala said frankly that you must not make any mistakes and must play perfect without mistakes.
Iguodala said: "You must understand that you are defending a player with the best talent ever. As long as you make mistakes, he will make you pay. So you must play basketball without mistakes. You Try to put him in a difficult position, whether it's shooting or passing, or he is on the defensive end, so you can take advantage."
Iguodala is considered the best player to defend LeBron. In the 2015 NBA Finals, Iguodala averaged 14.6 points, 6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game, and his field goal percentage reached 54.9%. At the same time, he played a huge role in defending LeBron, limiting the play of this top superstar. Iguodala was therefore elected FMVP. According to media statistics, since the 2015 Finals, Iguodala has limited the opponent's shooting percentage to 44% when defending LeBron, which can be said to be very successful.
This season, Iguodala averaged only 4.6 points per game during the regular season. It seems that there is no gas in the tank. However, he played an important role again in the playoffs. In yesterday's battle, Iguodala made 4 three-pointers and scored 15 points against the Celtics. Obviously, this former FMVP is like a bloodthirsty shark, and he smells the finals.
The Heat are a team that pays attention to team basketball, but they are also considered lacking in talent. In this regard, Iguodala said: "We are better than any team in terms of willpower and unity. We always hear others say that we are not talented enough. We accept this voice, but we can let the players play their best. effect."
