09:12 AM ET 09.21 | Stephen Curry indicated the Golden State Warriors are aiming for 50 wins this season when he said earlier this month that there's a number that "has a five in front of it" written on a whiteboard inside the team's practice facility as a goal. Apparently, that's not enough for Andre Iguodala. Not after he helped the Denver Nuggets win a franchise-record 57 games last season. And not after he turned down more lucrative offers to sign a $48 million, four-year deal with the Warriors this summer. Fifty wins? "I would say more than that," Iguodala said Wednesday at the team's downtown Oakland headquarters, where most players have been voluntarily working out for about three weeks before training camp starts Sept. 29. "I just have really high expectations for us. I won't say too much about wins. I'd rather fly under the radar." Iguodala's reasoning is simple. The Warriors knocked out his Denver team to reach the second round of the playoffs last season, return all five starters and made aggressive moves in free agency to sign him.

They won 47 games last year. 3 extra isn't exactly a bold prediction.

Regular Season Is But A Warm-up, Bro.

Most over rated player in the NBA.

Hard to disagree. He'll never be the #1 or 2 guy but yet gets overpaid. Not consistent enough on offense and doesn't have a single go to move. Defense is pretty good.

Why not have the guts to assure a title while you're at it?
But then Ewing & Barkley also did that and they failed miserably!

"Andre Iguodala predicts 50-plus wins for Warriors"...

By the time his 4 year contract is up?

GSW can win 82 games in the regular season but the trophy is going to Miami for the ThreePeat...

I also predict Bogut will play lessn than 30, Steph less than 60. With all that if they win 50+ games, kudos to them

Agreed......

Now if he'd said 55 or 60 games......that would've been interesting ;-)

Iggy better understand it's not about how many games you win during the season, but those last 16 wins you need as a team to be considered an NBA Champion.

Doesn't need to on this team!
There's a reason he chose this team for less $$!

All around way above average play, toughness, defense, work ethic and doesn't get hurt are the reasons why he's paid so well!!
