  • Andre Iguodala sought out Jayson Tatum to console him after the Warriors won the championship.

  • Draymond Green also shared a long exchange with Tatum.

  • Tatum had a spectacular postseason run but appeared to run out of gas late in the Finals.

Golden State Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala immediately sought out Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum as the Warriors celebrated winning the championship.

Cameras showed Tatum and Iguodala in a long embrace, with the 38-year-old Iguodala speaking to Tatum passionately while patting him on the chest.

It was a long, grinding playoff run for Tatum, who established himself as a superstar — a likely top-10 player — but appeared to run out of gas in the Finals. Tatum became the first player in NBA history to ever commit over 100 turnovers in a series, and he shot just 36.7% from the field.

Iguodala did not play much in the series, totaling just 18 total minutes, but has long been one of the most respected players in the league.

Draymond Green also shared a long embrace with the 24-year-old Celtics forward.

The Celtics held a 2-1 series lead over Golden State but struggled over the final three games, particularly with turnovers.

After the game, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka had a positive outlook, saying the future is bright for his team.

He also said Tatum’s struggles would fuel the player’s improvement going forward. Iguodala likely told Tatum the same.
