No harm no foul? Andre Iguodala says he didn’t feel LeBron James’ groin kick

There was much to talk about after Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors appear to be on the brink of closing yet another series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, buoyed by the strong play of Kevin Durant.

Meanwhile, others were more concerned with a certain unnatural action by LeBron James on Andre Iguodala, one that Draymond Green has long been hectored for.

That’s right: the groin kick.

James was seen on replay kicking Iguodala between the legs during the closing seconds of Game 3 on Wednesday. While no suspension or other penalty has been doled out to LeBron, Iguodala says he didn’t even feel it.


When I look back at it, I was like, ‘Oh, I didn’t even know this happened,’” he said. “Somebody told me about it. I didn’t know what happened, but I’m not going to be the one to say someone should not play, because you want everybody to be at full strength, right?”

Fair enough. Perhaps Iggy just has the testicular fortitude of a Finals MVP?

Game 4 is on Friday in Cleveland.
