Andre Iguodala holds MVP trophy close on Warriors plane ride home

Wednesday June 17th, 2015

Andre Iguodala has a had a very busy few weeks, and now that the Warriors have finished their run to the top of the NBA he can finally rest.

After the wear and tear of a full season, followed by a playoff run that ended with the veteran guarding LeBron James for six games, Iguodala was going to need some serious sleep to recover but he was not going to let his newest prized possession out of sight.

The 2015 Finals MVP posted a photo of himself slumbering on the team plane back to Oakland while holding on to the Bill Russell Award, which he affectionately refers to as "bae."
