Iguodala, like his team USA teammates, has enjoyed a successful year after taking home Gold this summer
First of all, I know, I know. Iguodala has been anything but himself this year.
For the first time in a long time, "Mr. Invincible," abruptly came back down to Earth. His 252 consecutive games played streak ended with an ailing Achilles heel.
Iggy is currently averaging career lows in steals per game, field goal percentage and free throw percentage. To add insult to injury, it is his lowest points and minutes per game total since his sophomore season in the league.
Enough ripping on this guy, after all, he is still Andre Iguodala. He has plenty of things going for him, especially what he did this summer.
Iguodala is one of the few members of the Team USA summer team that isn't enjoying major success this year. Luckily for Iggy, there is plenty of season left for him to rebound.
After sitting out seven games over the last couple weeks, Andre has rebounded nicely the past two games. He posted proficient lines of 15 points, seven assists and six rebounds on 6-10 shooting against Milwaukee. Then in an overtime win over Charlotte, he put up 16 points, 10 boards, and six assists on another efficient 6-10 from the field.
This type of maturity, being able to impact the game in more ways than one, is what it takes for an injured unselfish All Star player to help his team the most.
Expect Iggy to have a much better second half where he can learn how to pick and choose his spots and become very effective while still playing on a bum foot.
