Andre Iguodala Made a Really Bad Joke About How to Stop the Warriors

C'mon Iggy, you're better than that.

Published December 7, 2015

The Golden State Warriors keep adding on to the hottest start to an NBA season in league history, currently sporting a 22-0 record.

But after getting that 22nd victory — via a 114-98 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night — Warriors small forward and 2015 NBA Finals' MVP Andre Iguodala might have gotten a little carried away. OK... a lot.

That's because, when asked about the best way to beat the defending champions and end their winning streak by an ESPN reporter, Iguodala offered: “Going to the gun range and learning how to shoot. Kill us all. That’s the only way you can beat us, if you shoot us and kill us."

Perhaps instantly realizing it wasn't an appropriate joke, Iguodala added, "that's a joke."

The poor joke came only four days after the San Bernardino mass shooting that left 14 dead struck the same state of California that the Warriors call home.

Gotta be more careful with your words, Andre.
