Warriors Convert Unbelievable Alley-Oop That Doesn’t Count

If the Golden State Warriors have a weakness—err, that is, if there's any way in which they're worse this year than they were in their record-setting 73-win 2015-16 campaign, it's that they're not even close to as deep as last year's iteration was.

In addition to losing the likes of Marreesse Speights, Harrison Barnes, David West, Andrew Bogut, Festus Ezeli, Leandro Barbosa, and Anderson Varejao, perhaps their most important unsung role player—ace wing defender and capable distributor Andre Iguodala—is a year older at 33.

But don't tell that to him. During Wednesday's 121-111 victory over the Toronto Raptors, Iguodala showed off his youth by throwing teammate Shaun Livingston an alley-oop, not after putting the ball between his legs and behind his back.

Iggy didn't miss a shot in the win, going 5-of-5 from the field for 11 points, three boards, and two assists.

Stephen Curry led the way for Golden State, scoring 28 points to go with seven assists and seven rebounds.
