SACRAMENTO – Warriors coach Steve Kerr on Wednesday announced his team captains for this season, naming Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala to share the honor.
Curry last season became the first Warrior voted to start the All-Star Game since 1995.
The 26-year-old point guard led the team in scoring (24.0 per game) and assists (8.5) and was named All-NBA Second Team.
Iguodala, 30, is the most versatile player on the team.
He's listed as a small forward but frequently runs the offense as a "point forward."
Kerr has consistently praised Iguodala, perhaps as a tactic to get the veteran to embrace coming off the bench to lead the second unit while also sharing floor time with the starters.
"He'll play with a lot of people," Kerr said. "Over the last two weeks, my guess is like Andre is 27-0 in scrimmages, whether he's on the White team or the Blue team.
"Andre wins. We need Andre to help everybody out. He's a guy who make every other player on the team better."
