"They played us better than anyone," Iguodala told Power 105.1 radio in New York on Wednesday. "They played us better than Cleveland. Some of the stuff they was doing, it's like ... 'Oh, man. We gotta play perfect.'"
The Thunder held a 3-1 series lead on the Warriors in the West finals but squandered a double-digit lead at home in the second half of Game 6 before being eliminated in Game 7 in Oakland, California.
Much has changed since.
The Cavaliers, led by LeBron James, delivered the city of Cleveland its first title in more than 50 years thanks to a Game 7 victory over Golden State, which had won the championship a year earlier behind Finals MVP Iguodala.
"Now that we got KD, I can say it: They were the best team last year in the league in the playoffs," Iguodala said of OKC. "They were better than us. They were better than Cleveland. They were the best team in the playoffs. They should've won a championship."
