Warriors’ Andre Iguodala shocked that his number got blocked by his old agent
On Thursday night, Andre Iguodala tweeted out that his old agent has blocked his phone number:
I think my old agent blocked my number… I’m appalled!

Iguodala’s longtime agent had been current Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, but the veteran had to change when Pelinka got his Lakers gig. Iguodala went with Brandon Rosenthal, who was close to Pelinka at Landmark Sports, so this accusation certainly is interesting. Perhaps Pelinka is just being petty because Iguodala is a member of the enemy these days.
Andre Iguodola is now nearing the end of his career with the Golden State Warriors. It seems that he saves his best self for the playoffs and picks and chooses his spots in the regular season, which is only natural for a veteran on a loaded team like this.
The Warriors have found their groove again after struggling for a good chunk of the season. Part of those struggles involved a lack of depth, because they hardly have anyone who they can trust to win games on their bench. Beyond that, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have gone through major shooting slumps, putting a ton of pressure on the shoulders of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry.
But the two-time defending champions have won six games in a row, and DeMarcus Cousins is finally coming back on Friday. Cousins’ ability as a dominant stretch big will give Steve Kerr an offensive weapon he has never had. Kerr will be able to stagger his players accordingly with his minutes and allow them to be more rested for the playoffs.
Andre Iguodala and the Warriors are now 31-14 on the season and sit in first place in the Western Conference. They will face off next against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center, where Boogie will make his season debut.
