Andre Iguodala: ‘There’s Not Going to Be a Season’

Andre Iguodala isn’t exactly optimistic about the NBA team owners and players reaching an agreement to save the 2011-’12 season. CSN Philly reports: “Andre Iguodala likes to speak his mind. Sometimes that gets him into hot water because his words aren’t always what people want to hear. So Monday morning, when on the 13th fairway at Trump National Golf Club, Philadelphia, the seven-year NBA veteran said ‘You know there’s not going to be a season’ one wanted to respond ‘Say it’s not so.’ Instead, there was a thought that Iguodala is just speaking the truth. ‘I didn’t think it would be this bad,’ Iguodala said, playing in an outing for Stars Within Reach, a foundation that encourages and helps children pursue their dreams. ‘I thought with the season we had and the TV ratings that we had and this being one of the largest grossing revenue season’s in the history of the game, you would think that we would be able to reach an agreement. But we are so far apart.’”

    The paranoid part of my brain is saying this is a way to build publicity and they are secretly working out an agreement. The realistic part is getting more and more depressed. Looks like I’ll be paying a lot more attention to college ball.

    PLEASE NO. I’ll talk a 1/2 season. A 1/3 season. 1/4. Just start with the playoffs next year. Do SOMETHING.

    Will there be a draft in June? Lets pretend there is no season this year, but differences are setteled by the start of 2012-2013, can you imagine what the rookie game will look like at all star break? (And would this years “rookies” be considered sophmores in that game??)
