Andre Iguodala’s Nike PEs

by Chris O’Leary / @olearychris

After rocking the same pair of black and red Nike Hyperfuses through the first four games of his post-season, you have to wonder what’s held Andre Iguodala back?

I’m not talking about his 8.8 ppg average in the Playoffs (though the 6 rebounds and 7.5 assists help his cause) or the fact that his Sixers are down 3-1 to the Miami Heat. Iguodala let two home games slip by him in this series and chose not to go with these player exclusive white/red Hyperfuses that Nike made for him.

Based on the lack of success he and his team have had in the first three games of the series, the choice wasn’t to stick with something that was working. Maybe he doesn’t care about his kicks as much as others. Maybe he’s just more focused on extending his Playoff push as long as possible. Either way, a brilliant pair of kicks are collecting dust while Dre and the Sixers sort it out.

    Iggy’s absence for the majority of this series has been, to me, startling. We’re talking about a cat who has been a 20 ppg guy for this team and he’s being relagated as a role player/ defensive stopper…..Its confusing, all I know is he won’t be in Philly next year….he’d fit nicely in Atlanta

    Really really nice looking shoes

    anyways imo Hyperfuses are one of the best Nike releases in recent memory. The material is so durable and lightweight, its got a nice finish to it. I absolutely love these shoe, I’ve got a pair of Nike Fuse TR 1.2′s and they are fabulous cross trainers. The flywire stuff is overrated imo

    @theblackrickkamla..omg if he went to atlanta they would be sooo nasty..especially if they also got a decent centre

    atlanta doesnt need a pseudo-star, they already have one in JJ.

    Co-sign Riggs, Iggy would make a good support player to a true go-to star player. He’s proven that he’s not a go to guy, but he can fill a stat sheet if put in the right system.
