If there were any mixed feelings about Andre Iguodala, well, this will probably change that.
[LibertyBallers] In a lengthy and telling interview with CBS Sports’ Matt Moore, Iguodala opens up on a number of issues. The most poignant of which being his unhappiness.
“I haven’t really enjoyed basketball a whole lot the last couple of years. Last year was a big year for us, but it was just draining for the criticism to be there every single day.”
Not surprising at all, from what we’ve heard over the last two or three seasons. Doug and Andre simply did not get along, despite the facade both tried to uphold in front of the media. And that, among the injustices of public disapproval due to his perceived lack of jumpshooting prowess, has to wear on a guy day in and day out.
“So in Doug Collins’ first year, I didn’t shoot threes because he was like, ‘I don’t want you shooting threes, I don’t want that shot.’ Last year, I said, ‘I’m shooting it.’ And what happened? Shot 38 percent from three, top-25 in the NBA from three and I’m supposed to be a non-shooter. You put so much work in, and then to be told, ‘Don’t do what you worked on all summer.’”
Bro, you’re NOT a shooter. Get over yourself!
It’s a shame cause I liked Iggy, but these quotes will officially make him the villain.
October 31st. Halloween Night. 7pm. Nuggets at Sixers. Iggy comes back to Philly. He will hear it from the crowd.
