Last season proved to be a good one for the Warriors and the post season was even better.

The Warriors knocked off the third seeded Denver Nuggets coached by George Karl. During the series, Mark Jackson claimed to have an inside source from the Nuggets who let him know about how the players were feeling.

No one dared to take a guess at who it could've been, not until recently. The former coach of the Nuggets saw no problem in naming names and pointing fingers. During an interview with Denver radio host, Dave Krieger, Karl confidently said Iguodala was the mole for Mark Jackson in last years playoffs.

After saying Karl sent hit men at star point guard Stephen Curry, he mentioned an inside source with the Nuggets organisation.

Sometime after the acquisition of Iguodala, Warriors owner Joe Lacob said Iguodala seemed interested during the first round series between the Warriors and the Nuggets. Others have said that Iguodala may have been the source Jackson was talking about but none seemed as confident as George Karl when he said it.

Karl sounded a little angry when speaking to Dave Krieger, saying: "I thought Mark had a lot of tricks in that series that were bush-...I don’t know.

"I don’t know what they were. Almost high-schoolish. They were beneath the NBA level. And they might have worked. They might have motivated his young team in a good way. You know, he’d announce a starting lineup and start another guy. C’mon, man."

Well, we know that whatever Mark Jackson did turned out successful. Leading his team to a first round victory and a great second round series against the Spurs.

Karl seemed as though he blamed the series loss on Iguodala being Jackson's 'mole', but we all know the Warriors were a young talented team and deserved their win.

Karl was announced as the Coach Of The Year but was fired shortly after.

He seems as though he is still upset. Hopefully he can come back as a coach and have the playoff run he feels he deserves.
