Twitter went into a bit of a frenzy when Andre Iguodala said Kobe Bryant was the hardest player he ever had to guard, not LeBron James.
Andre Iguodala is on a run of making spicy comments you'll either love or hate.
He has already declared that the Knicks aren't going to get any big free agents, and now the internet is dissecting a comment he made on CNBC's Power Lunch on Monday.
After heaping on plenty of praise about how great LeBron James is when commenting on who is harder to guard between James and Kawhi Leonard, Iguodala committed the one cardinal sin of Basketball Twitter and brought Kobe Bryant into the conversation.
Obviously a former Finals MVP and three-time champion is going to have a more than credible opinion on any matter regarding basketball, especially one about his own experiences on the court, but that didn't stop people from sounding off on the idea that Kobe is harder to guard than Bron.
“No iggy, you’re wrong. We know lebron is tougher to guard ” -a person who can’t get by another man in Rec league who does accounting from 9-5— 🏁🏁🏁🏁 (@FastTimesAtRF) June 25, 2019
His "opinion" isn't based on facts which may explain why he was smiling when he said it.— 🏁弥介 ボールは人生 ✴ (@JamesHa38103028) June 25, 2019

Iggy sports opinions never been outlandish. If Bron laid Yoshi eggs on his head and he still pick Kobe. Its prolly just a totally different experience— #LetsDance 🕺💃 (@ArtOfBorePod) June 25, 2019
Oh lmfao Iggy said Kobe was harder to guard than Lebron. I see why there was a ton of stats and stuff on the TL lmao— 🏁🏁🏁🏁 (@FastTimesAtRF) June 25, 2019
Bron dropped that 30pt triple double on Iggy’s head in the Finals so many times he made him delusional...you hate to see it— Jared (@WifiWinston_) June 25, 2019
Thank goodness Iguodala can't comment on guarding Michael Jordan or else everything might explode.
