Golden State Warriors sixth man Andre Iguodala appeared frustrated after his team's loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, when he made some race-related comments to a group of reporters.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced his decision on Friday night to sit out starters Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson for their Saturday game, after the team suffered a 103-102 loss in Minnesota on Friday night.
In a post-game interview, Iguodala shared some interested comments when asked about Kerr's decision.
When a reporter asked what had caused the Warriors loss, Iguodala responded saying, "We gotta score more than the other team. Yep, they want dumb n—s, so I'm going to give y'all a dumb n—."

Iguodala continued, saying, "What would dumb n—s say? 'Just play harder. Figure it out. Change gonna come.' You know what we used to say. Change gonna come."

While it can be assumed that Iguodala was referring to Kerr in using the term "master," as Marc. J. Spears writes for The Undefeated, the player's statement was "quite confusing."
"It can be implied that by using the word 'master,' short for slave master, Iguodala is speaking of Kerr," Spears writes. "Iguodala is extremely intelligent and very methodical with his words. There is always a method to his madness. Even though the 2015 NBA Finals MVP knows what he's saying and is often calculated, this statement was quite confusing."
The Warriors have gone 2-3 since Kevin Durant's XX injury against the Washington Wizards.
