Andre Iguodala uses a CJ McCollum tweet to prove a point to Brandon Jennings

It's mid-August and we are all bored right now.

We want the NBA regular season to arrive.

But since we can't speed the calendar up, we have to settle for some fun Twitter banter.

This time, it involved Andre Iguodala, Brandon Jennings and CJ McCollum.

It all started on Tuesday night when Jennings tweeted his Top 5 shooting guards ever, and Iguodala responded:

This led to a back-and-forth, and the following explanation:

Then on Wednesday morning, McCollum was back in the headlines (you can read about that here) -- which led to him tweeting:

Iguodala saw this tweet and assumed the four Hall of Famers McCollum was referencing were Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

Iguodala assumed correctly.

Fun stuff!

Andre Iguodala: Kevin Durant is 'the most talented scorer of all time'

Andre Iguodala has seen the greatness of Kevin Durant as both an opponent and a teammate. For the last two seasons, the two have been teammates on the Warriors, resulting in back-to-back NBA championships. 

When Durant was a Warriors rival with the Thunder, Iguodala was tasked with taking on the star. He sure is happy to have Durant on his side now. 

Iguodala joined Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated for an extended interview and touched on an array of topics discussing the Warriors. When asked, "What’s something that people don’t know about Kevin Durant?" Iguodala heaped the highest level of praise on his teammate. 

"People don’t appreciate him enough. He's the most talented scorer of all-time. Hands down," Iguodala said. "He's a walking 30 points. He’ll get 30 on 12 shots. That’s very, very hard to do. Very efficient. Most guys need to feel the ball in their hands a lot to get a rhythm. He doesn’t." 

What makes Durant the greatest scorer of all time? Iguodala turned to the fact that Durant has the skills of a guard with someone who is seven feet tall, making him nearly unguardable. He, of all people, would know. 

"Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were the two guys with unstoppable moves. MJ had the fadeaway and Kareem had the skyhook, but KD is a 7-footer who can hit a hesi pull-up from 50 feet out. That's his unstoppable move," Iguodala said.

In two seasons with Golden State, Durant has averaged 25.7 points per game while making 52.5 percent of his shots and 40 percent of his 3-pointers. 

Through 11 seasons, Durant has totaled 20,913 career points. He is currently No. 36 on the NBA's all-time points list.

JaVale McGee no longer plays for the Warriors, but that doesn't mean he can't spend some time in the Bay Area still.

If you went to bed before 10pm on Wednesday night, then you may have missed the following tweet from the two-time champion:

And you also probably missed the reply from Andre Iguodala about 20 minutes later:

Iguodala also weighed in on Thursday morning:

Aren't you glad you know about all of this?

You're welcome.
