Nigerian-American NBA player Andre Tyler Iguodala of Golden State Warriors forward was named MVP of the NBA Finals following the Warriors’ 105-97 clinching win Tuesday night June 16th, becoming the first player to garner the honor without starting every game.

Before this season, the 31 year old, had remained in a reserve role until Game 4 of the Finals, when he was substituted into the starting lineup for center Andrew Bogut.

“I always say Andre’s a pro’s pro. He’s a professional guy, and it showed, and that’s why he’s the MVP of this series, and that’s why we’re champions.”

Iguodala finished the series with averages of 16.3 points, 4 assists and 5.8 rebounds. In Game 6, he scored 25 points and added 5 rebounds and 5 assists.

“My mind was working so many ways,” Iguodala said. “Like, ‘What’s going to happen if you win? What’s going to happen if you lose? How do you approach the game starting? Do you come out firing? Do you let it just come to you?’ For me, it was just playing my game. If you’re feeling it, shoot it. If you feel like you can make a play for somebody else, make a play for somebody else.” he said
