Andre Iguodala Thanks Sixers and Their Fans in Letter


In the Denver Nuggets’ season opener, Andre Iguodala will play against his former team in Philadelphia tonight. In a classy move, Iggy wrote a letter to the Sixers organization and its fans on his website, expressing his appreciation for them. Via the Philly Inquirer: “Philly—I would like to take the time to thank you and all your devoted sports fans for the passion, loyalty and spirit that you gave to me during my eight seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers. Thanks as well to the 76ers organization, who gave me the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream of playing in the NBA and provided me with a great front office of dedicated people to work with. I would also like to thank all the coaches, trainers and teammates that I was blessed to compete along side and build lasting relationships with here. Tonight I begin a new chapter in my career but I will always share my accomplishments with the city and the organization and I thank you both for all that you have done for me. Sincerely, Andre Iguodala.”

    Pretty cool to have your first game in your old city against your old team.

    Hopefully his return will be better than the previous A.I. that got traded to Denver from Philly.

    In short thanks for trading me for two injured allstar big men pressure is off.

    Seems like everybody on here is forgetting what Dre had to say shortly after he left Philly…didn’t have such nice things to say back then, but of course the day that he arrives back in Philly he says something cute. Typical Iguodala, that’s why he could never be a #1 option, he is afraid, lacks that killer instinct.

  • Canesta

    You must not have heard what he had to say right after he was traded. .http://philadunkia.com/?p=7326

    interesting, didn’t realize he was talking all that much because it wasn’t super public

  • Cameron

    A.I. played pretty well in Denver. averaged 25,26, and 18 in his final season with an average of 7 assists. Not too bad..

    Nah, you’re misunderstanding. I’m talking about the return to Philly, not the season or career. A.I. had a great game, had a chance for a last second shot, but lost the game.

    Sad to see Phili boo’d him. A classless city if it’s possible for a whole city to lack class. He didn’t bolt. He didn’t even choose a team over you. YOU traded him. Gave it his all for 8 seasons and you boo him? Lamar demanded a trade and LA gave him a standing ovation.

    You stay classy Philadelphia
