Andre Iguodala fined $10K for racially charged comments

Andre Iguodala has been fined $10,000 by the NBA for his postgame comments with racial overtones following the Golden State Warriors' 103-102 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves last Friday.

Asked why Warriors coach Steve Kerr planned to rest him along with stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs, Iguodala responded, "Nope, no clue. I do what master say."

Iguodala was later asked about the loss to Minnesota and told reporters, "We gotta score more than the other team. Yep, they want dumb (expletive), so I'm going to give y'all a dumb (expletive)."

In response to Iguodala's comments, Kerr told reporters: "You guys just got Andre'd." Kerr added, "Andre is one of those guys who likes to stir the pot and has a lot of cryptic messaging at times. (He) jokes around. I didn't take anything from it. It's just Andre being Andre."

Iguodala had eight points in 32 minutes off the bench against the Timberwolves. He is the Warriors' sixth-leading scorer this season, averaging 6.7 points.

San Antonio went on to rout Golden State 107-85 without two of their biggest stars in Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, both injured.

The Warriors (52-14) are mired in a three-game losing streak and have dropped four of their last six games, but still maintain a half-game lead over the Spurs for first place in the Western Conference.
