The question for Philadelphia fans is;
Should he stay, or should he go?
While Igoudala has been a human highlight reel since entering the league, most Sixer fans now want him gone. And fast.
The Sixers are off to a bad start this year, and for once it's not Elton Brand's fault. Brand has looked more like the days of Clipper land, unfortunately it hasn't helped his Sixers get W's. Some would be quick to blame number two draft pick Evan Turner, but I'm not buying that excuse.
He's played what, 13 games?
Not everyone clicks with the NBA level of play like Lebron James did. Some rookies take time to adjust to the pace of professional basketball. The fact for the Sixers is they acquired a skilled shooting guard, he just needs some time to get his footing here in the league.
All of this brings me back to none other than Igoudala, who essentially holds the Sixer season in the palm of his gigantic hands. He actually has two different ways that he could turn this season around completely.
1. He's traded for a guard of at least similar value. The Sixers have a chance of this new guard better fitting the offensive game plan, translating into increased win totals for Philadelphia.
2. He starts playing like the man they signed. If no trades go through, Andre still has a chance to redeem himself by getting out of whatever funk he seems to be in. If he would only focus his energy into scoring efficiently and locking in on the defensive end, the Sixers would have a fighting chance every night they take the floor.
It's hard to say which road this Sixer squad will choose, but I'm leaning toward them surprising the league in the coming months, and collecting a few more deserved wins.
