Iguodala is leading the Sixers in the right direction.
With all the talk about the Sixers draft and the 7 game win streak there on, its time to give props where props are due. Andre Iguodala is playing like a star right now. How long it will last? Who knows, but its time enjoy it while its here. He had a great behind the back dunk that made #1 on Sportscenter's top plays. It was a hell of a play all around. Inguodala is on a tear averaging 25 pts, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists a game during this run the Sixers are on. The team itself looks like they are starting to gel a little bit, while the Nuggets fall apart, but that's another topic on its own. But right now, I just want to focus on how much Iguodala keeps stepping up and shows in his stats and in the win column. In November he averaged 18.9 PPG, 5 APG, and 5 RPG. Almost halfway through March he averaging 26 PPG, 6 APG, and 8 RPG. He has had a steady increase every month of the season. And at this point he is playing just as good as any superstar in the NBA. Here are his GAME LOGS for the season.
So right now Iguodala and the Sixers are putting up a huge fight right now. Not just against the teams they play night in and night out. But they have to deal with the fact that a good percentage of fans want them to fail to help in the draft. Right now their backs are against a wall and they are playing like it night in and night out.
